comment Did God create Adam and Eve with free will and knowledge of right and wrong (good and evil)?
Good point. If there were no free will, then there would be no need for a command. Can you add the biblical references? That would make this a better answer.

comment Is the tripartite God the judge in the Old Testament, and Jesus the appointed only judge in the New Testament?
Judgment was not always meted out immediately in the Old Testament. Man's wickedness was exceedingly great before the flood, and then God waited another 120 years. Sodom and Gomorrah were not destroyed until their depravity greatly increased. Egypt did not receive immediate punishment for their mistreatment of Israel. Furthermore, justice was, indeed, meted out immediately in the New Testament. For instance, Ananias and Saphira immediately received judgment for their sins.

comment What changed between the Old and New Testaments?
Well, it was just a comment--not an in-depth explanation. I would further state, though, that the Sermon on the Mount tells us how we ought to act. The Mosaic Law told Israel how to mete out justice when people failed to act that way. All governments follow this pattern.

comment What changed between the Old and New Testaments?
The passages in the Old Testament are addressed to a nation on how to mete out justice. The Sermon on the Mount is addressed to individuals on how to relate to others. If governments never punished anything, society would be absolute chaos.

comment Resources for who actually penned the books of the New Testament?
The very verse that you quote to identify Peter and John as unlearned men affirms that the most learned men in the country were astonished that they did not speak as unlearned men. It is not a stretch that did did not write as unlearned men either.
