Actually, it does. I explained this once before. And I pray you understand that even though all that's written, that we call "The Holy Bible," shares one case-binding, the Holy Bible, itself, is a collection of 66 separate literary works written over a period of 1,500 to 1,600 years-- by 36+ authors! As I believe, the fact that we even have a method that many derogatorily call "circular reasoning" is most impressive considering.Thank you. I'm not buying the idea that the Bible can be used to fully explain the definition or meaning of the word fulfilled as written in the Bible and attributed to Jesus. Such would be circular reasoning saying that the Bible in and of itself explains itself which it cannot.
English: fulfillStanding back and reflecting upon the passage where Jesus reads Isaiah, rolls up the scroll and speaks of the Law of the Prophets as being fulfilled simply means "made whole" again.
Greek transliteration: pleroo
Definition: to make full, to complete, to accomplish
Actually and as I explained, Israel attributed righteousness to temple offerings such as sacrifices and oblations rather than actual righteous thoughts, actions, reactions, and speech. And if they did observe the moral law, they were more than satisfied observing the literal letter of the law, either neglecting, or totally misunderstanding, the spiritual aspects of it. In other words, they would refrain from committing the literal act of adultery, but they were excessively inflamed with lust toward their neighbor's wives. And it was for this very reason that our anointed Savior focused, more than anything else, on the spiritual aspects of the moral law.If we read the synoptic Gospels we are told what the actual Law is, the Law which never changes. It is a law of compassion and love with a mystical view of God rather than the laws and statutes written and imposed by man upon other men.
Not exactly. As Father is the proprietor of the first, old covenant, Father is the proprietor of the second, new covenant, too. In the case of sacrifice, the blood of animals was required to establish the old covenant. The blood of our anointed Savior was required to establish the new. And this is why our anointed Savior declared, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me (John 14:6)." Clearly, what our anointed Savior accomplished was not to draw us to him, but to Father, as said by him.Since God of the Hebrew Scripture is said to have made covenants, then Jesus can make no such covenant unless the Holy Trinity is true, which would roll Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and the Father (God) into a single being.
Not entirely.I see your definition as using the word fulfill as in fulfilling a prophesy or messianic legacy. The passage does read that way as written and translated.
And [Yahowshua] said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in...
1) the law of Moses, and
2) in the prophets, and
3) in the psalms, concerning me.
Not exactly. There are, to date, no less than 44 prophecies that were fulfilled by our anointed Savior. And accordingly, there are 18 prophecies that are impossible for him to have orchestrated, regardless.It is intellectually dishonest as Jesus could manipulate circumstances to make it so.
