The Gospel of Fulfillment (Matthew 5:17-20)

Category: Bible - NT - Matthew :: Permalink

Matthew 5:17-20 is one of the most pristine expressions of the gospel in the New Testament. Why? Because this passage says overtly and boldly that the Story of Israel is fulfilled in Jesus himself. His life, his teachings, his actions—everything about him completes what was anticipated in the Old Testament. That’s the gospel” — Scot McKnight, The Sermon on the Mount.
