I would like to know if Jesus copied from the torah, meaning that he had a copy of the old testament at hand and decided to do everything that the prophets were describing. This came to mind since It seemed too perfect for him to fufill the predictions perfectly. I'm just curious if this might happened. I originally thought that this was not the case since the dead sea scrolls were hidden away and the jews didn't have the whole old testament at hand however i'm probably wrong about this so this is why i'm asking this. Thanks!;)
Jesus is the Word of God which is eternal and always was with God:
John:1:1: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2: The same was in the beginning with God.
3: All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4: In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
Therefore Moses, Noah, Abraham Isaac and Jacob, King David the prophets where communicating with the Lord, (the Word of God, in the Presence of God) long before the Word of God in the Presence of God was revealed in the flesh. It was through Him, that we now know as Jesus the Christ that the Law was given. He didn’t adopt the law, He gave the Law that only He is qualified to fulfill.
