Re: What is the law in New Covenant?

Good morning Verb. I think we agree, but as I said "when I mention keeping the Law many christians think I am saying we 'HAVE TO' obey the Law'. I allready said; The Law does ''''''''''''NOT JUSTIFY us, """""I teach, and debate, we are saved by grace!""""""But my complaint is this; As the prophets, ...

Re: What is the law in New Covenant?

My point should have been that Jesus sermon on the mount and all his other words were not so much addition to 'scripture' (Torah) but He opened up and expounded the scriptures to them. He also 'fullfilled' the words of Moses, David, Isaiah etc. Jesus taught the Law, not adding to it, but going deepe...

Re: What is the law in New Covenant?

Hello, I believe we are 'saved so that we can keep the Law'. The Law was fullfilled but not eliminated. The Law was changed but not rewrote, 'we' fullfill the Law 'through' Christ, Christ fullfills the Law in us and through us, as we are His body. It is not the symbolic aspects, it is now the real d...
