1-12-2016 What Law Did Jesus Fulfill

“Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled” (Matthew 5:17-18 NKJV). Jesus, then, gave 6 quotes from the Law of Moses which He contrasted with His own Laws (Matthew 5:21-48). After He was raised from the dead, “He said to them, ‘These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me.’ And He opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the Scriptures” (Luke 24:44-45 NKJV). Once fulfilled, the Law of Moses was removed by Jesus’ cross. “He takes away the first that He may establish the second” (Hebrews 10:9 NKJV).
