Bewildered #4?- Moses and Jesus

(Exodus 4:8-9) : Moses turned water in blood (Judgement)

8 Then the LORD said, "If they do not believe you or pay attention to the first miraculous sign, they may believe the second. 9 But if they do not believe these two signs or listen to you, take some water from the Nile and pour it on the dry ground. The water you take from the river will become blood on the ground."

(John 2 :7-9) : Jesus turned water in wine (joy and blessing)

7 Jesus said to the servants, Fill the jars with water; so they filled them to the brim. …… 9 and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine….,

(Exodus 32:28) : Law given on Mount Sinai -3000 died

And the children of Levi did according to the word of Moses: and there fell of the people that day about three thousand men.

(Acts 2:41) : Christ gave his law on spiritual mount Zion - 3000 saved

Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.

The law of Moses was a law of judgement and spiritual death as nobody could uphold it perfectly. The law of Christ is a law of life (as judgement was already meted out on Jesus) and it provides for the forgiveness of our sins and allows us to enter into the joy, blessings and inheritance of God.
