Jesus transforms us
Jesus offers us way more than sin management. He promises that he can transform us, inside out, to be authentically, naturally good people. We can live the eternal kind of life now, in this life. Up there can come down here in our hearts. That's what Jesus is on about in the passage we read. He says, `Don't think I've come to get rid of the law, the law is good. It's just not enough.` He says, `I've come to fulfill it, to complete it, to help it accomplish what it is meant to accomplish, which is the transformation of us.` Then he goes through a series of examples where he says, `You have heard it said , but I tell you ,` and he contrasts the difference between simply obeying a rule, and being a transformed person. Most of the examples he uses involve our two favorite sins, sex, and violence. He says, `You have heard it said, `Do not kill anybody, ' but I say to you, if you even get mad at someone and call them a name, then you're not living the eternal kind of life.` Maybe you've obeyed the rule outwardly, but inside you still have all this gunk. You have heard it said, `Do not commit adultery, ' but I say, even if you harbor a lustful fantasy that is a prison, that is a hell that you'll be in, it will drive you crazy, and it demeans the other person because you are just taking one part of them and not all of them. And you're not living the abundant life; you're not having the joy you could otherwise have, because you are consumed with anger, or lust, or pride, or whatever it is.`

You are surprised with the Fulfillment of the Law which Jesus did not abolish,but complete.
For Jesus had the consistent way of living until the cross.

How does Jesus fulfill the law and the prophets?
By walking all the path till all the cup is drunk to the last drop. His last breath on the cross for us...no the Resurrection.In doing so showing utter obediuience to the Commandments of the Father in the utmost act of selfggiving and self sacrifice: Love the Father obey to Him. Love your neighbours. If one can give his life for the others...what do the other Commandments ask of us? Deus Caritas Est. We are made one again in crist. We are called to be living caritas too.

How does Jesus fulfill the law and the prophets?
Jesus came to earth as God in the flesh to offer us salvation as prophesized in the Old Testament fully knowing how His mission would end. He died on the cross and was resurrected so we can see that we have the promise of eternal life if we but have faith in Him and love for one another.

How does Jesus fulfill the law and the prophets?
The law of Moses contained many sacrifices and rites which were designed to shadow forth the Messiah. Hebrews 10 : 1, The law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming not the realities themselves. For this reason it can never, by the same sacrifices repeated endlessly year after year, make perfect those who draw near to worship; These were fulfilled when he came and offered himself a sacrifice to God. Hebrews 9 : 11-12; When Christ came as high priest of the good things that are already here, he went through the greater and more perfect tabernacle that is not man-made, that is to say, not a part of this creation. He did not enter bt means of the blood of goats and calves; but he entered the Most Holy Place once for all by his own blood, having obtained eternal redemption.

How does Jesus fulfill the law and the prophets?
He fulfilled the prophets by coming which was prophesied by many prophets. Jesus fulfilled the Laws as he came to summarise them into two simple Laws of loving God and loving the neighbor.

The Fulfillment of the Law

"Don't think that I came to destroy the law or the prophets. I didn't come to destroy, but to fulfill. For most certainly, I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not even one smallest letter or one tiny pen stroke shall in any way pass away from the law, until all things are accomplished. Whoever, therefore, shall break one of these least commandments, and teach others to do so, shall be called least in the Kingdom of Heaven; but whoever shall do and teach them shall be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven. For I tell you that unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, there is no way you will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.

Matthew 5:17-20
