concerned old friend<quoted text>
According to the OT if you are to practice Judaism you would have to have a temple and have to have animal sacrifices as did the disciples as Did Jesus till he fulfilled the OT the old covenant.
So no Judaism does not exist anymore not because of my logic it does not Exist anymore Because Jesus said it is Finished, does the Seed of Abraham continue on yes as Paul delineates in the NT but we are no longer under the law or Old testament LAW, not one bit of the OT law applies for us today its time has expired we are under NT a New covenant instituted by the Christ Jesus God incarnate.
lets see if you bite this one
Hmmmm. So you are saying that God breaks the Old Covenants with man, in order to fulfill the FINISHED one in Christ?
So that means his promise to not flood the earth again is null and void as with Noah?
So that means the remnant of the Jews in the N.T., are not really Jews?
The meaning of "It is finished." exceeds the covenants but does not nullify them. It is finished refers to not just the Mosaic Law, but even back to Adam. Christ's sacrifice makes peace between God and man possible back to original sin, as justice has been served upon Jesus, the God/Man, fully God/fully Man....
So what about the time between the death/resurrection of Jesus and the destruction of the Temple..., since it still had animal sacrifice, these Jews were not Jews performing in accoradance of the laws of Moses?
