    Default Where are the Christians with respect to Matthew 5:17-19

    Salam and hello,

    Where are the Christians today with respect to the supposed saying of Jesus (Matthew 5):

    17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

    18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

    19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.


    If such is the case why do we have later in the Bible (Galatians 2)?

    16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.

    17 But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid.

    18 For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor.

    19 For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God.

    20 I am crucified with Christ: neverthless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

    21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

    Hello Jello!

    What flavour are you?

    Just kidding.

    I really like this question you posted and I do have a reply in mind for it.

    Good question!

    I don't always have much time, but making a reply for this thread post is something I hope to do very soon.

    There is a very good answer to this question.

    This is simple to explain. Jesus fulfilled the law and through Him, we do to.
