Matthew 5:17 ” Do not think I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.”

Across the New Testament we see Jesus bringing to fruition Scripture from the Old Testament….from Jeremiah (Matthew 2:17), to Isaiah (Matthew13:14), to the Prophets (Matthew 26:56). But in doing so He neither altered, replaced, or nullified the former commands…Jesus rather established their true intent & purpose, seen in His teaching and how He accomplished them by His perfectly obedient life here on earth. The Law was the foreteller of Jesus’ actions & sufferings, just as Jesus explained & satisfied fully the requirements of the Law. The Law and the Prophets all pointed to a coming Messiah…and Jesus Christ came to fulfill it.
