To Fulfill the Law.

Our lives are structured. We may claim that there is no structure in our lives. But even having no structure is a structure. We depend on that structure to live our lives in peace. When it is threatened, we respond in kind. Because without that structure, we are lost. Jesus came preaching the coming of the kingdom of heaven. Most people don’t understand that it is the right structure for us. So, in Matthew 5:17-19, Jesus address their fears. He said I haven’t come to destroy the law, but to fulfill it. Jesus also said, that it wouldn’t disappear until every thing was fulfilled. I have heard most of my Christian life, that the old testament isn’t relevant for today. All 27 books of the new testament are from the old testament. God added a new covenant to the bible, to bring us home. But all the old covenants are in force. We as Christians have entered into the covenant of Abraham. We are the sons and daughters that God promised Abraham. The word of God will not disappear until all of it is fulfilled.
