    A major concern in Galatians is the relationship between the gospel and the necessity of keeping the Law (Torah). A distinctive characteristic of the teaching of Jesus as recorded in the Gospel of John is the sequence of sayings that begin with the declaration. contains love commands (John –35; , 17). But there is something di"erent in the Fourth Gospel that has attracted the interest of scholars in recent times. Despite the widespread insistence upon love in the Gospel of John, the command to love one’s neighbor has disappeared. A command to “love one another” has replaced it.

    One of the sections of Scripture that clearly reveals Jesus’ teaching on law and grace is the one in which an adulteress was dragged before Him to see if He would pronounce the penalty upon her demanded by the law—death by stoning (John ).

You need Jesus as your Savior (Gospel)." The Old Testament (Law) came before the New Testament (Gospel). Jesus keeps his Father’s commandments and abides in his Father’s love “I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love.” (John b) Jesus keeps his Father’s commandments so that the world will know Jesus loves his Father “I do as the Father has commanded me, so that the world may know that I love the Father.” (John ) Jesus’ new.
