“For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.”
King James Version (KJV)

This does not mean that what was in the law was not true. John is merely saying that grace came and a complete telling, or revealing, of the truth was made through the Mediator Jesus Christ our Savior. He finished it, put the capstone on it, and revealed it to us. And whatever does not agree with the truth is false or unprofitable. Whatever is false will not lead to eternal life but to the second death where we do not want to go! Once we see that "the light of truth" has illuminated something false, we drop it. We should get away from it as fast as we can. Do not linger over it.

When we do things let 's do by God instruction as Moses did because we are the sons of God.

I think christ meant the old system namely the law was now fullfilled because grace and truth had arrived thro the messiah

The Law is what gives us our rights. If someone knocks out your tooth you have the right under the law to take their tooth out. If someone pokes out your eye the law gives you the right to poke out theirs. Rom 8:3 tells us that the law is weak because it has no power to save a person from hell. However under grace we have power, The power to not press charges. Grace not only forgives but it gives a gift on top. Christ not only forgave us our sins but he also gave us salvation.

First, the "Law of Moses" is the Law of God. Yeshua the logos, the word was the one they in the Old Testament. They looked forward to for their salvation through faith by grace. We look back for the same thing. The Law brought wrath. The "soul that sinneth shall die" Yeshua the messiah brought mercy, or we could say he bought salvation by his sacrifice, God's mercy and grace, he being God in the flesh. Thanks. Comm.
