Response to Re: The Gospel Of Christ
But the inclusion of the prophets in Jesus' statement does not mean that he came to fulfill the whole law of Moses.
The "righteousness" of the scribes and Pharisees come from their strict observance of the law of Moses. However, Jesus said that the "righteousness" of the scribes and Pharisees does not warrant entrance to the kingdom of heaven. Jesus said, "UNLESS you EXCEED the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven (Matt. 5:200.
Therefore, it is ABSURD to even think that Jesus was referring to the "Law of Moses" when he said, "Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill" (Matt. 5:17).
Clearly, Jesus came to FULFILL God's Law of righteousness written in Det. 24:16 and Ezek. 18:20. This is the "righteousness of God" that is revealed in the Gospel of Christ (Rom. 1:17).
