Could the Christians of this site please provide from the verses of the Bible why you claim Jesus DID abolish the law outside of the context of crucifixtion. Thank you.

These verse's may help.Lostinthisworld said:Are you saying the law is paid in full ?
So we can say, do and act like swine and still get into heaven as long as we have faith.
If so, wont this world go into a downward sprial ?
I was taught that the OT was included because it was a history of God's interaction with his people but that we were to following the teachings of Christ. However, I have always been a bit confused about this since the following verses say differently:Seyorni said:Why, then, is the Old Testament included in the Holy Bible? Is it just a rather long historical preface?
It reveals God and history.Seyorni said:Why, then, is the Old Testament included in the Holy Bible? Is it just a rather long historical preface?
Thank you NetDoc; that is an answer I can understand. Well, there has to be a first....!NetDoc said:Abolish or fulfill?
Jesus fulfilled the law and so in reality "abolished" it.
The Old Testament was a perfect contract. Just like a mortgage is a contract, it had certain obligations to be met. Jesus met those obligations and completely fulfilled ALL of the requirements. So just like a mortgage, it became "useless" except as an historical piece. The book of Romans REALLY brings this home, especially chapters 2-10. Galations 3,4 & 5 are a good study as well.
Galations 3:23 Before this faith came, we were held prisoners by the law, locked up until faith should be revealed. 24 So the law was put in charge to lead us to Christ that we might be justified by faith. 25 Now that faith has come, we are no longer under the supervision of the law. 26 You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, 27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

fromthe heart said:Pardon me...jumping in here with a question...Didn't Jesus still say we were to obey the laws of the two commandments Matt.20:37-40 and didn't Jesus speak about the law in respect to how you treat your mom and dad, and about stealing and coveting??? and the rest of the last of the commandments? Doesn't that say we are to still obey the commandments so that others can know us by our fruits?
NetDoc said:No... Jesus fulfilled the law. It no longer binds Christians. BTW, I can't find Matthew 20:37-40!!!
