The argument put forward by many in Christendom is that the references Jesus made to the Old Testament was to lead souls to feed off it as bread from heaven as if He was saying that His Father had inspired the entire Old Testament canon en bloc. Nothing could be further from the truth than this.
Jesus’ reference to the Old Testament was for the purpose of reminding them that even some of their sinful scriptures pointed to Him as the Truth and that they therefore should waste no further time looking in their narrative for Him but instead come directly to Him as the Teacher.
Christ came to endorse His own words as eternal, shedding His own blood as God’s Son to demonstrate the cost that God is willing to pay in order that His Son’s Words become pre-eminent in authority in heaven and on earth.
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me,” Matt 28:18
But the Biblical canon enthuses souls with an idea and belief that is contrary to the purposes of Christ. The canon suggests of itself that it is the ‘Inspired Word of God’, which is not what Jesus taught. It encourages believers also to believe that God instructs his creation to hate, murder, kill, rape, plunder, steal and destroy since all of these actions are portrayed as God’s commands. Worst still, the canon portrays these actions as the work of Christ who is part of the Godhead, which constitutes nothing other than an assassination of the true nature of God, of His loving and graceful character.
