(Acts 7:35) Then “God iusim olketa angel for talem datfala Law long Moses,” and Moses iusim Law hia for teachim olketa Israelite. (Gal. 3:19) And tu, Jehovah talem Moses: “Leadim pipol hia go long ples wea mi storyim finis long iu.

So Jehovah disciplinem samfala long olketa or hem aotem olketa from datfala waka. (1 Sam. 13:13, 14) Gogo, Jehovah markem wanfala wea bae leadim pipol bilong Hem wea winim evri narawan.

Olsem example, Moses sei olsem long olketa Israelite: “Jehovah God bae chusim wanfala brata bilong iufala for kamap profet olsem mi. Iufala mas duim evri samting wea hem talem long iufala.” (Deut. 18:15) Isaiah sei disfala man bae “kamap leader and bae hem rul ovarem olketa kantri.” (Isa. 55:4) And Daniel raet abaotem “Messiah datfala Leader.” (Dan. 9:25) Gogo, Jesus Christ talemaot hem nao datfala “Leader” bilong pipol bilong God. (Readim Matthew 23:10.) Olketa disaepol bilong Jesus barava willing for followim hem, and olketa luksavve Jehovah nao chusim hem.

(Acts 10:38) Nara samting tu, holy spirit bilong God helpem Jesus for showimaot love, for hem hapi, and garem strongfala faith. (John 15:9; Heb. 12:2) No eni nara leader hem duim olketa samting hia.

18, 19. Hao nao Jesus iusim toktok bilong God for leadim hem long evri samting wea hem duim, and long taem wea hem teachim pipol?

Nomata taem hem redi for dae, hem talem toktok abaotem Messiah from olketa Holy Raeting. (Matt. 27:46; Luke 23:46) Bat olketa bigman long religion long taem bilong Jesus nating tinghae long toktok bilong God. Olketa no laek for followim toktok bilong God sapos hem no sapotim biliv bilong olketa. Taem Jesus story abaotem olketa bigman hia, hem talem disfala toktok bilong God wea profet Isaiah talem: “Long toktok nomoa pipol hia mekhae long mi bat olketa no lovem mi. Olketa hard waka nating for worshipim mi bikos olketa sei olketa law bilong man hem teaching wea kam from God.” (Matt. 15:7-9) Hard tumas for Jehovah chusim olketa man wea no followim toktok bilong hem for leadim pipol bilong hem.

19 Jesus hem iusim toktok bilong God taem hem teachim pipol. Taem olketa bigman long religion askem olketa kwestin long hem, hem no iusim tingting bilong hemseleva for ansarem olketa bat hem iusim olketa Holy Raeting for teachim pipol.

Bat from hem barava tinghae long toktok bilong God hem willing for storyim datwan long pipol, and “hem helpem olketa for minim gud olketa Holy Raeting.”—Luke 24:32, 45.

20 Staka pipol sapraes long olketa nambawan toktok bilong Jesus. Nomata olsem, Jesus evritaem mekhae long Teacher bilong hem, Jehovah. (Luke 4:22) Taem wanfala rich man laek for mekhae long Jesus and kolem hem “Gudfala Teacher,” Jesus sei long hem: “Hao nao iu kolem mi gudfala? God nomoa hem gud, no eniwan moa.” (Mark 10:17, 18) Eitfala year bihaen, Herod Agrippa I, hem kamap leader long Judea. Hem barava difren from Jesus!
