I Jesus and law not come to destroy; emphasizing his statement by repetition. Jesus instructed his disciples to obey the law Matt. Consequently, nothing of the law was to fail until it had completely accomplished its purpose. This passage of Christ is cited in the Talmud uafter this manner: You can see this further confirmed in Mark In the Epistle of James[ edit ] James 2: In conclusion, Christ sustained a unique position to the Law of Moses.
Now we are in a position to answer that question. He stiffens it immeasurably. Must we similarly take every law of Moses and stiffen it to arrive at the law of Jesus? The word "end" is from the Greek telos.
We told you it is simple! Instead, he recast the law of God in the greatest of simplicity and condensation, making it very simple and strict without taking anything away.
It is indeed hardly possible for any human being to abide by the Third Law, but the Lord has provided a way. Vine remarks on telos in this fashion, "Noun, telos: By "the law" is meant the moral law, as appears from the whole discourse following: This commandment has been stiffened so greatly that it cannot any more be called the same commandment.

One can choose to agape-love the poor soul, but it may require another wastrel to love him by nature. Seeing that, one is tempted to further reduce the number of the laws of Jesus to a single one:Jesus, by explaining, expanding and exemplifying God’s law, fulfilled a prophecy of the Messiah found in Isaiah Isaiah The LORD is well pleased for his righteousness’ sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honorable.
The law of Christ, then, is to love God with all of our being and to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. In Mark –33, the scribe who asked Jesus the question responds with, “To love Him with all the heart and with all the understanding and with all the strength, and to love one’s neighbor as oneself, is much more than all whole.
Matthew And Jesus answering said to him, "The Law and the prophets" were popularly equivalent to the whole of the Old Testament, though a strict classification required the addition of the Hagiographa, or "holy writings," i.e., the poetical and miscellaneous books.
