Obsolete? Jesus and the Old Testament

What do we do with the OT?
  • Matthew 5:17-20
What does the Bible Say about the OT?
  1. The OT is inspired by God. 2 Timothy 3:16-17
  2. The OT is holy, right, and good. Romans 7:12-14
  3. The OT was written to teach us. Romans 15:4
  4. The OT should be followed spiritually. Romans 2:28-29
  5. The OT cannot save us. Galatians 2:15-16
  6. We uphold the OT through faith in Jesus. Romans 3:31
Jesus & Obedience to the Old Testament...
  • What Jesus is going to show us is NOT the letter of the Law...or the directives but the precepts of the Law.
  • Jesus shows us that we are to live by the deep truths of the OT – the spirit of the Law.
  • Sabbath was made for weren't made for the Sabbath!
  • Jesus doesn't say Sabbath no longer applies...he says understand the real nature of the Sabbath.
  • Matthew 22:35-40
Will You Love As Jesus Loves?

1. Make things right with people.
  • Matthew 5:21-26
  • The whole reason God gave the 5th Commandment is to teach us to be right with one another.
2. Don't think of others as here for your gratification.
  • Matthew 5:27-30
  • Stop using people.
3. Stop divorcing your faithful instead.
  • Matthew 5:31-32
  • Jesus is teaching us that the whole divorce thing is about protecting one another.
  • So, he says...stop faithful.
4. Keep Your Word.
  • Matthew 5:33-37
  • Jesus says if you really love someone don't swear, just keep your word.
5. Stop taking revenge
  • Matthew 5:38-42
  • The point was to protect the perpetrator.
  • This is a law that say's don't harm people beyond what is just.
  • Romans 12 – Vengeance belongs to God.
6. Treat your enemies well.
  • Matthew 5:43-48
  • The Pharisees took at text that teaches us to love everyone stood it on its head and turned it into how you should hate people.
  • Stop mistreating your enemies.
Jesus doesn't toss out the Old Testament...he fills it full.
