2 Cor.3:6-16 Says that the ministration of death "written in stone" which Moses received on the mountain is done away with and abolished. Even today, when it's read, a veil remains on the hearts of those who hear it. The ministration of the Spirit is much more glorious because it brings life, not death.

I read a lot of commentaries and history books. Just recently there have been several Jewish and Christian writings that take an honest look at the 1st century without trying to defend a position. Jews do believe that Jesus (if they honestly look at him) did provide good teaching that's why he was called a Rabbi. But there is a difference between Jew and Gentile Gentiles aren't Jews and we shouldn't try to be. But the teachings have great benefit for us all.

Jared that is soo interesting and makes so much sence. Where did you hear that

When we are thinking of the Law we need to remember that the Jewish people didn't call it the law. they called it the teachings, until the Greeks came. The Greeks were people of law (they were the first democracy) Jews were people of teaching. So when the Greeks saw that the Jews lived by they teaching they then called it Jewish Law, and Jews accepted it. Jesus fulfills the teachings.

Many of the teachings were for survival as culture and society became more technologically advanced the survival issues were no longer important but they are still good teachings that we can benefit from. but everything is centered on Jesus, not Law.

jana. The ministration of the Spirit is not the spirit of the 10 commandments. It's the Holy Spirit. But I suspect you have to believe it that way because otherwise you would have to agree: that which was written in stone was done away with.
But it remains that when Moses is read a veil is on the peoples' hearts. Do you have that veil on yours?

Amen Mima! It's the Good News, isn't it? Bless you.

We are given the benefit of the law in Jesus.
The intension of the law is righteousness. Righteousness is at the right hand of the Father. In believing in Him we inherit a place of righteousness.
All the law was fulfilled in perfection in the passion of Jesus

No, the moral was in conscience to God, everything he did was to please the Father, ceremonial was in becoming our sacrifice, to do away with the sins on our hearts, and enter into the holy of holies for us, civil was to establish the NC by challenging the laws of that time and establishing a stronger law that leads to life and away from death, He has become our law all in all, we imitate Him we are no longer under the laws man made.
---Stephen on 3/5/07


Jesus fulfilled the law by keeping it. And by keeping it he keep himself as the spotless Lamb of God. Now our righteousness is imputed to us by believing in the Lord Jesus Christ. And part of that righteousness is Jesus' keeping the law. Thereby making us also keepers of the law through Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible says no man and will be justified by keeping the law!!!! If a man tries to justify himself by keeping the law he makes the righteousness of Jesus of no importance.

jana, are you saying you can fulfill moral law aside from Christ?
---Ryan on 3/5/07


mima, JC fulfilled law thats true. But how did He fulfil it? Can u explain from the bible the whole story please. Why was the old cerelaws done away. Did Christ truly needed 2 die n why? what is the purpose of the cere/laws? I look forward to your reply.
---jana on 3/5/07


Yes Jesus fulfilled the law. Why? For you and me, as we in and of ourselves were incapable of fulfilling the law. So if Jesus has come and fulfill the law for us, why are some so concerned with keeping the law today? While we should not willfully, openly, knowingly, break the law the law no longer can condemn us as we now has saved people have the righteousness of Jesus imputed to us.
---Mima on 3/4/07


John, u misinterpret 2Cor3:7-18. this is talking about the 10Cs/spirit how more glorious it is than Moses Laws V7 which was 2b done away/abolishedV13.V11,4if that which was done away was glorious,much more that which remains is glorious (10Cs)

I would also add that god makes no mistakes. jesus said that he was sent by the father. he came to do what the father wanted him to do.as he died on the cross he said it is finished.no mistakes,no errors,all he was suppose to do he did.now that being said we as humans may analyze his life and the teachings,but we are the ones with doubts,or mistakes in our thinking,not GOD.

The Bible says, "Christ fulfills the Law."
Jesus said, "Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill." Matthew 5:17

We are now waiting for the coming of Jesus Christ so we must listen to Him and be ready!
Do not listen to what people say. Read the Bible and the testimony of the Holy Spirit.

The Bible shows that Jesus died once for all,(Heb 10:12) and Jesus taught there was but one sin that could not be forgiven (Matt 12:31), how then did he not die to fulfill moral law if "mortal sins" can be washed away with repentance (Mat 4:17Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent:) through his blood?

John 6:37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

ryan,jesus was GOD.though in the eyes ,hearts ,and ears of men what jesus did and said in their minds was not complete,or somehow faulty,the truth could not be farther away.jesus was,is,and does everything perfectly.
