Christians are "new covenant" believers.  Christ gave us new laws as part of the new covenant.  We don't have to obey the Law of Moses.


The Response

There is only a single place where Messiah says He gives a new commandment:

"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another."  (John 13:34)


While love among believers is to be a sign of discipleship, it is not a new commandment.  We are told, "love your neighbor as yourself" in Leviticus 19:18.

As far as the new covenant itself, God says that He will write His Law upon the hearts of those in that covenant (Jeremiah 31:31-33).

As far as the Law of Christ versus the Law of Moses, we address that claim in another article.
