Christ and the Law – What’s the Connection?

Text: Matthew 5:17-20 -In this message we see that Jesus didn’t come to update or re-interpret the Old Testament Law. Rather, Jesus teaches us that he fulfills the Law in that all of the Old Testament points to Him! He, himself, is the fulfillment of the Old Testament. While the ceremonial and civil laws of the Old Testament have been literally fulfilled in Jesus’ death on the cross and the beginning of the church, the moral law remains in effect since God’s moral standard of holiness has never changed.
