The Father is our Lawgiver, and Jesus Christ is our Advocate. “Sin is the transgression of the law.” 1 John 3:4. “If any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.” Chap. 2:1. BSA 20.2

Christ was a prophet or teacher like Moses, and not a lawgiver. “I will raise them up in a Prophet from among their brethren like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.” See Deuteronomy 18:15-18; Acts 3:22. BSA 20.3

Moses did not make laws for the people. He received words from the mouth of God, and spake them to the people. Leviticus 24:11-14: Numbers 15:32-36; 27:5-7. BSA 20.4

Christ, like Moses, was a prophet or teacher. He did not legislate, but taught his Father’s law. Jesus testifies on the subject. “Jesus answered them and said, My doctrine is not mine, but that sent me.” John 7:16; 8:28; 12:49, 50; 14:24. Says Jesus in Revelation 22:14, “Blessed are they that do his [the Father,s ten] commandments.” BSA 21.1
