“Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have not come to abolish these things but to fulfill them.”
Jesus fulfilled the law by drawing out its fuller meaning in the remaining part of the chapter. He goes to the heart’s motivations. Also, the Lord brought mankind the forgiveness and reconciliation toward which the law moved God’s plan.
What meaning do the law and the prophets give Christians today? How can we use the Old Testament for spiritual benefit?
