Which Laws Did Jesus Fulfill

Which scripture separated the law into civil, ceremonial, and moral? Jesus said He came to fulfill the law, if the law is separated which part did He fulfill? If He only fulfilled part of the law does that mean there will be other messiah's to fulfill the other two parts?

fay, you quoted 1John5:3 regarding keeping God's commandments.

And what are His commandments?
1John3:22,23 "whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments.....And this is his commandment, THAT WE SHOULD BELIEVE ON THE NAME OF HIS SON JESUS CHRIST, AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER, AS HE GAVE US COMMANDMENT".
---Haz27 on 6/23/10

fay, you asked about Heb10:26-38 So what sin is it talking about? "SIN" is: 1John3:4 TRANSGRESSION OF THE LAW, also John16:9 UNBELIEF.

Heb10:26-31 speaks of those who continue under the law that Jesus fulfilled (i.e sinners). In so doing they do not believe on Jesus for their salvation. They "sin wilfully" in that they heard the truth of the gospel but reject the work Jesus did on cross. They have "trodden under foot the Son of God, and have counted the blood of the covenant, , where with he was sanctified, an unholy thing...".

Heb10:38 Christians live by faith in Jesus Christ. If someone draws back under law of sin and death that Jesus fulfilled on our behalf then God has no pleasure in them.
---Haz27 on 6/23/10

Jesus gave to israel a sanctuary to show the ways of God and the planof salvation/ redemption. This involed a lamb=jesus
high priest=jesus
veil=jesus body

Once Jesus died the veil in the sanctuary was torned and then jesus said IT IS FINISHED.

It was not the ten commandments that was finished, we today do believing that we must not commit adultery,, or murder. It was the laws of the sanctuary that were finished.
SInce his death no more sacrifies for sin could be made.
---francis on 6/23/10

I am a simple person, so, I am going to answer you simply. Jesus filfilled the first four and the last six. Loving God the first four, loving your neighbor the last six. Don't cheat, don't lie, don't kill, don't be jealous. Don't worship no other gods, Hallelujah. Don't curse His name. Obey God on the Sabbath, rest and keep it holy....Work at pleasing God and then your neighbor. If God is happy, you'll know it. Thank You Jesus++

Jesus fulfilled the law that needed to be fulfilled to make us acceptable. He paid the price we could not pay, and in a way of speaking I am depending on his having kept the law for me. This is true because I get his righteousness, and in return he paid the price for my sins on the cross.
---mima on 6/22/10

You could be right Samuel. I propose that they have a sin that is out of control & can't stop. So they find it hurts to admit they have no control. It's easier to believe that it's not sin. I'm sure we've all been there? I know I have. But the proper response is to admit we need Jesus to take it away for us.

1Jn 5:2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
1Jn 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
1Jn 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
---fay on 6/22/10

amen, Samuel!
---aka.joseph on 6/22/10

One question we need to ask is what does fulfill mean. Many take it to mean done away with. But JESUS stated He did not come to do away with the law but to fulfill it. So fulfill cannot mean done away with.

The law in the OT showed what is sin and how to come back and get right with GOD through ceremonies pointing forward to JESUS. It also had rules on how to run the government and how to live healthy.

Today we do not need the ceremonies since JESUS dies.

Many who say the law is done away with still believe that some things listed as sin in the OT are still sins they just pick certain ones.
---Samuel on 6/22/10

What of Heb 10:26-31 & 38?
---fay on 6/21/10

Ryan- I'm not sure the point of this question or the end game. It sounds like a needless bifurcation of the Savior who is complete in ALL things. "It is finished" denotes completion.
Anyway, the simple answer is that Jesus fulfilled ALL the law in one word
OBEDIENCE....unto death.

The question indicates a misunderstanding of our Savior larger than any question we may have concerning the law.

Perhaps the confusion lies in the concept of the word "end."

If the word "end" in Rm 10:4 actually meant no more, then Rm 10:3 would actually make no sense. The primary root of "end" in Hebrew means to set out for a definite goal, the conclusion of an act,or result or prophetic purpose,

Rm 8:3,Lev 18:5, Gal 3:12, Rm 10:6 refers to Deut 30:11-14, Jer 31:33 refers to Jesus being the law that is within.

Jesus did not do away with the law any more than the conclusion of a movie, or any story, does away with the story. The end gives the story of Jesus purpose. Since the beginning of time God has been laying down laws aiming towards the ONE person who makes the laws easy.
---fay on 6/21/10

Romans 10:3 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

---micha9344 on 6/20/10

Dom: Read my earlier post again focusing on the scriptures. Christians are DEAD to the law.
Your right Jesus did not abolish the law he fulfilled it on our behalf. The wages of sin is death. Jesus paid that penalty for us. Christians are crucified with him so now it is "no longer I that lives but Christ lives in me" Gal 2:19,20
To use your example with completing an exam (which in this case resulted in death if you did not get 100% perfection), if Jesus completed the exam for us then why would we go back again to sit for a test nobody but Jesus could pass.

Why is it that people quote Paul when stating that they do not need to follow the law ? Why is it no one questions where Paul got his vision from ?

Do not suppose that I [Jesus Christ] have come to abolish the Law and the prophets, I did not come to abolish, but to complete.

Will not abolish. Meaning he has not come to remove the law.

Complete the law. Meaning he has more to add to it completing the law.

If I complete something it means I add to it to finish it off. I dont get rid of it. I dont complete an exam then tear it up.

Jesus did not eat pork, was circumcized, fasted and prayed prostrated. Should you follow Jesus example or Pauls ?

---Dom on 6/20/10

Jesus fulfilled the whole law, which includes the 10 commandments. And what is this law now to Christians?
"I through the law am DEAD to the law..I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live, yet not I, but Christ liveth in me" Gal2:19,20
Rom6:7,8 "For he that is dead is freed from sin. Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe we shall also live with him:"

But there is another law i.e Rom8:2 "For the LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
Jesus took the law's condemnation for us all Rom8:3 so the "righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit".
---Haz27 on 6/19/10

Jesus fulfilled the Law of the sanctuary ( THE LAW OF MOSES)

Everything in the sanctuary pointed to Jesus, and he fulfilled it all

Jesus is: ThE light, the lamb, the high priest, the veil, the bread, the lamp,the oil*,

Christ is the end of the law, means that christ is the goal or purpose of the law. Everything in this law pointed to christ and he fulfiled everyone of them

ALso he fulfiled allprophecies about himself

The law Jesus fulfilled was the one that said man must die for his sins, the law judged Jesus a Sinner even though God said he was not,and condemned him to die for sins he had not committed. Sin came By the Tree and the Knowledge of sin the Law condemned Man But Jesus being nailed to the Tree fulfilled that judgement also his flesh being the word Died so the Law died and was resurrected a new law the Law of Spirit and Grace .

You have presented one of my favorite scriptures. God added the dispensation of law because of the transgressions of Israel. God's command to Israel when He freed them from Egypt was, "Tell them to be my people and I will be their God." Israel did not accept this (This is the transgression in Gal 3:19). They requested law because they relied on their own council, they thought they could prove their righteousness through works and did not continue in the faith of Abraham.

Geoff...Galations 3:19 Why the Law then? It was added because of transgressions, having been ordained through angels by the agency of a mediator, until the seed would come to whom the promise had been made.

Geoff...I understand what you are saying; the law is eternal. I am merely presenting two facts from scripture. 1)It was not God's desire to administer the law, 2)Christians are free from the law when they enter into the Spirit. Satan has done a good job deceiving so many that love the Lord, taking their focus from the Lord and redirecting it to law. And yes this includes the 10 Commandments.
---Ryan on 7/13/06

Mt 22:37 . . . Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
39 . . . Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Jn 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

Would He continue to exhort us to obey His Law in the NT if the need to prove our hearts ever goes away, while we remain on earth?
---a_servant on 7/13/06

God desires us to have His Law. We did not steal it from Him. He gave it to Moses, & places it inside us by His indwelling Spirit, as He always planned.

Eze 36:27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes . . .

Jer 31:33 . . . I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Gal 3:24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.

Those of us who live by faith no longer need to be brought to Christ. But those yet unborn generations will still need the Law as a schoolmaster.

All of us who live by faith still need the Law to illuminate our behavior, either demonstrating our love, or our lack of love.

Ryan, the law has been in effect from the beginning. Initially, they were written on the our hearts. The devil is the father of lies & broke the 9th commandment. Cain was 1st to break the 6th, Joseph kept the 7th... then God had to spell it out & write it too at Sinai, but Moses Law was added because they were breaking the 10 Commandments-Gal 3:19. All along, during the ceremonial law & after God wrote His law on our hearts-Pr 7:2-3. Please notice the 1-4=Love for God, 5-6=Love for fellowman-Mt 22:35-40
---Geoff on 7/13/06

a servant...your response is wonderfull. I agree that the law was given to show us sin and our inability to prove our righteousness to God. How do you respond to the fact that is was never God's desire to give the law?
---Ryan on 7/13/06

Regarding Christians, all the Law still functions as a "searchlight uncovering behavior not born of love".

The 2 great commandments are about LOVE. Essentially, sin = not loving. Disobey God = sin = not loving. No charity/respect for man = sin = not loving.

Some statutes have been modifiied, e.g., a.) blood sacrifices and its ceremonial & temple aspects; b.) daily, yearly temple functions; c.) required gatherings at the temple; d.) separate temple courts for men & women.
---a_servant on 7/13/06

The purpose of the Law was to show us when we were not operating in love toward God (ceremonial, moral) & toward man (civil, moral).

By Jesus acting in love, dying when He did not break the Law, His actions fulfilled the intention of the Law, i.e., always acting in love toward our Father and toward our fellow man.

Fulfilling the intention of the Law does not mean the Law has been done away with. To the contrary, the Law still proves our sin, still proves our lack of love.

Being free from the law of sin & death means "the Law cannot condemn my behavior because I am submitted to the Spirit (walking in the Spirit)". "Thus, all my actions spring from love" (God is love, thus the Spirit is love).

It does not mean the Law was crucified. To the contrary, it is the Law that demands crucifixion (death). The cross is subject to the Law. The Law is not subject to the cross.
---a_servant on 7/13/06

What aspects of the law are applicable to the Christian?
---Ryan on 7/13/06

Gal 5:14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt LOVE thy neighbour as thyself.

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is LOVE, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: AGAINST SUCH THERE IS NO LAW.

Hear what Scripture is saying. The law does not exist to condemn these non-sinful acts. These actions never cause Biblical condemnation. These actions result from surrendering to the Spirit, who is the Expert in God's Law.
---a_servant on 7/12/06

The law has aspects, but not separations. Together it is called the law. The commandments deal with many aspects, but not separated. The first 4 regard God, the last 6 regard man, but God combined them as the one overview needed by man.

The Bible has many parts: Pentatuech, History, Wisdom, Prophets, Gospel, Acts, Epistles, Revelations but not separated.

Each section is intertwined and only makes sense in the light of the other sections.
---a_servant on 7/12/06

Ryan, the key to your question's answer is in Matthew 5:17

Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

There are some who think fulfil means destroy. If so then we have a problem:

I am not come to destroy, but to destroy.

Ceremonial laws pointed to Jesus, so that when He came He fulfilled them. This is why we don't kill lambs anymore but we still keep the Sabbath. Hope that helps. More to come...
---Geoff on 7/12/06

Col.2 spells out that the handwriting of ordinances,holy days,cermonies, circumcision of the flesh,sabbath, and eating and drinking laws, etc. were nailed to his cross.It ends by stating we are no longer subject to this. These were a shadow of what was to come but not the very image.

First I need to define what the Law is, believe it or not.
The word used here is Torah, and speaks of the Torah, big surprise, or the 1st 5 books of the Bible.
Jesus came and fulfilled all of the Torah, which also included prophecies about himself, theophonies, and the rest of what we consider the law.
