Now let’s get started. Many people think the phrase Jesus fulfilled the law means he did it, so I don’t have to. The idea is that since he did it, there is no longer a need for us to do it. I’ve also heard people say that fulfilled means that he brought an end to the law indicating that he abolished it.
This phrase comes from Matthew 5:17-20 about Jesus Fulfilled the law. But the context of what he is saying is the exact opposite of what people seem to think,
Jesus Fulfilled Scriptures
“do not think that I came to destroy the law or the prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill, clarify, for Assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or tittle will by no means pass from the law to all is fulfilled genotypes. Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches men so shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven.
But whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say to you that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven”
Right here in the context of the verse Jesus says, Do not think I came to destroy the law.
And it goes on to say till heaven and earth pass away, I would argue that both heaven and earth are still here and have not passed away, which means not even a dot has passed away from his law. You should also said whoever therefore breaks the least commandment and teaches others to do the same, will be called least in the kingdom.
And whoever does and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom, Jesus is not telling us we no longer need to keep the law, he’s telling us not to even think that he came to do away with it. And if we want to be great in the kingdom, we need to be doing and teaching his commandments.
Jesus Fulfilled the Law
Now let’s look at the two words that are translated fulfill in this passage, the first word is player Si, which means to fill up to make full or to fill to individual capacity. So your shoe is saying that he came to make the law full, not diminish it.
The second word is genotype. And it means to come into being to become, come about or to happen. This word is used to say till all has happened, the English translators use the same word fulfilled to translate these two different Greek words. This is part of the confusion. But the definition of the word fulfill also lends to the confusion.
The English word fulfill means to bring to completion or reality, achieve or realize, or to carry out a task or duty or role as required. Pleasure expected, most people apply the first part of this definition to bring to completion and ignore the part that says to carry out a task, or duty as required, which I would argue fits the context of this verse best.
So the first part is best understood is saying, I did not come to destroy, but to carry out, I did not come to destroy, but to make full. And the second part is best interest it is till all is complete. To illustrate my point that pleasure aside, translated as fulfilled does not mean bring to an end. Let’s look at some other verses where this word is used and see if it makes sense.
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit? This is the exact same Greek word you show us when he said, I did not come to destroy, but to fulfill, sort of better understand this word, we need to ask how is it used in other places? is Paul saying, may God abolish or endure joy and peace? Where is he saying, may God give you more joy and peace? People seem to think your show was saying he came to end the law.
So as Paul saying, make God and your joy and peace. Obviously, that is not what Paul saying. The context of this verse is very clear that player sigh, means to give you more joy and peace, he is saying make God fill you up with joy and peace.
Likewise, your shoe is saying I did not come to destroy the law, but to fill it up or make it full. Let’s look at another example of this word, which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God, which was given to me for you to fulfill the Word of God is Paul saying he is a minister of God to end or demolish, to do away with or to abolish the Word of God? Obviously not.
He is saying that he is a minister of God to fully preach the Word of God. Likewise, we understand that you should be saying, I did not come to destroy the law, but to fully preach it. Yu Shu is not saying I did not come to destroy the law. But to end it. This is an absurd translation, because it makes no sense in the context.
It’s no different than saying I didn’t come to destroy the law, but to destroy it. Obviously, that is not what he is saying. Also, we need to remember what else he said in the context. Do not think that I came to destroy the law of the prophets I did not come to destroy, but to fulfill or fully preach. For surely I say to you till heaven earth pass away, one jot or tittle will by no means pass from the law to all this complete.
Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven. But whoever does and teaches them he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. is heaven and earth destroyed? No. So nothing has been removed from the law.
Do you want to be great in the kingdom, then according to your show, you need to do and teach all of the commandments, not breaking even the least important commandment. So yes, Christ fulfilled the law, because he fully preached it and brought it to its fullness. Yu Shu is the greatest in the kingdom, which means he did and taught all the commandments, and he says we should do the same.
