Matthew 5:17

Matthew 5:17

“Don’t assume that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill.”

Jesus did not come to destroy the Law and the Prophets. Jesus loved the Old Testament! He loved the Law! He loved the Prophets! Jesus came to fulfill them.

Think about it, he came to full-fill it … that is, he came to fill it up fully. Jesus’ words on the mount were to bring fuller meaning to the Law. Let us never neglect the OT. It always has and always will point us to Jesus Christ, our Great Redeemer, Our Sovereign LORD.

Open His Word and Enjoy.
