Intro

Jesus is the only saviour for eternal life. While Moses is more for righteous living.

Jesus for eternal life

Chapter summaries Acts CHAP. XIII.
1 Paul and Barnabas are chosen to goe to the Gentiles. 7 Of Sergius Paulus, and Elymas the sorcerer. 14 Paul preacheth at Antioch, that Iesus is Christ. 42 The Gentiles beleeue: 45 but the Iewes gainesay and blaspheme: 46 whereupon they turne to the Gentiles. 48 As many as were ordained to life, beleeued.
(Acts 13:36-41 [KJV])
 [36] For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption:
 [37] But he, whom God raised again, saw no corruption.
 [38] Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins:
 [39] And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.
 [40] Beware therefore, lest that come upon you, which is spoken of in the prophets;
 [41] Behold, ye despisers, and wonder, and perish: for I work a work in your days, a work which ye shall in no wise believe, though a man declare it unto you.

Moses for physical health

We also see in Acts 13 that Jesus Christ is the Messiah for eternal life, rather than Moses.

(Exodus 15:26 [KJV]) And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.

But listening to the advice of Moses, that is following the commandments can stop you from getting diseases, be good to you and give you a long life.

(Acts 15:28-29 [KJV])
 [28] For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things;
 [29] That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well.
