I’m in a discussion on the Eucharist right now, and started talking about the Eucharist as the fulfillment of the Passover.
Several verses were brought up to say that Jewish law had been abolished by Jesus, namely Ephesians 2:14-15 (14For he himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, 15by abolishing in his flesh the law with its commandments and regulations.) and Colossians 2:14 (He forgave us all our sins, 14having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross. ) . I mentioned Matthew 5:17-18 ( 17"Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.) in response.
I wonder how to reconcile the verses, and was curious to know if any of you had ideas. Thanks in advance!
