Jesus came as the fulfillment of the long-anticipated Jewish Messiah we read about in the Old Testament. While several passages in the New Testament (Rom. 7:6; Eph. 2:15) suggest that under the new covenant Christians are no longer under the Law, Jesus made several statements elevating the Mosaic law (Matt. 5:17; Luke 24:44) and honoring its testimony to his life. So what relationship does Jesus have to the Old Testament, the Temple, and the Mosaic Law, and what does this mean for Christians today? In today’s series of Seven Minute Seminary videos, Dr. Craig Keener offers helpful background to help Christians understand the nature of the law and how it bears witness to the work of God in our world.
