“Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill.” May sound confusing since Jesus did institute a new covenant “in His blood.” Jesus’ words remind us that it is too easy to become focused on the letter of the law. “To fulfill” means moving beyond the letter of the law to discern God’s will.
