It Is Finished...

Many people are confused by Matthew 5:17 when Jesus said,"Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets: I have come not to abolish them but to fulfill them..." (the Law and the Prophets being the Old Testament). We must also read Colossians 2: 13-15. Paul told us that when we were dead in our sins and in the uncircumcision of our sinful nature, God forgave us all our sins having cancelled the written code, with its regulations ( The Old Testament ) by nailing it to the cross. So with this passage we realize that Jesus was telling us that by dying on the cross, he fulfilled the law. (The Old Testament). As you probably know, we were given the Law so that we would realize how impossible it is to work our way to heaven and our only hope is the grace of Jesus. No matter how hard we try we can't even live up to the ten commandments.The Old Testament is the Jewish bible and the New Testament is the Christian bible.
