Like He Did – Matthew 5:17

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

Matthew 5:17
Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.

This is a verse that many use to say that Yeshua came to do away with the law. They will try to say that He didn’t abolish the law but that He lived it out perfectly in order to “do away” with it. If you ever come across someone who believes this, ask them the following question.

“Where in the Old Testament scriptures does YHWH say that if anyone lives out the law perfectly that He would suspend the need of having it?” The point is, He never said that. Never. YHWH gave the law to His people to be followed forever.

Since that is not prophesied anywhere in the scriptures, how can we say that is what He did? Doesn’t it make more sense that He came to show us how to live out the law perfectly? To be the example for us to see in action? Don’t try to abolish the Law. Fulfill it like He did.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, shalom!

Here's something interesting to consider:
