"Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill."
Happy April to you! Today am sharing the first diamond that I found in the New Testament.
It's sad that the men in the day saw Jesus as a threat, but then again, they had only heard that there was a Savior coming, so I guess it would be normal to be skeptical of Him coming. All Jesus was telling them now, was that He was exactly who He said He was. He was the Scriptures that they had all read about, He was the Promised One. He wasn't going to take over and try to make Himself greater than all the rest (even though He truly was), He just wanted them to realize that He was the Messiah. I think that they needed to be reminded of what was in the Law, so that when He fulfilled it, they would see He was the Truth! They could line the Law up beside Him and see that His words were so very true.
Jesus offers hope to us every day, just as He did to the doubters of the Bible times. He is exactly who He said He is, we just have to read the pages and see it. There should be no denying Who He is! Enjoy spending time in the Bible, getting to know the Savior and see how the New Testament is the fulfillment of the what the Old Testament talked about.
