The Law Fulfilled by Love

This is a summary outline of the progression of the Law from written to love expressed.

The Law (written Mosaic Law) was Temporary:

Gal 3:24 So the law was our guardian until Christ came that we might be justified by faith.
Luk 16:16 "The Law and the Prophets were proclaimed until John. ....
Gal 3:19 Why, then, was the law given at all? It was added because of transgressions until the Seed to whom the promise referred had come. ....

The Reason the Law Was Temporary is Because:

Gal 2:19 "For through the law I died to the law so that I might live for God.
Gal 3:11 Clearly no one who relies on the law is justified before God, because "the righteous will live by faith."
Gal 3:12 The law is not based on faith; on the contrary, it says, "The person who does these things will live by them."


Heb 8:13 By calling the covenant new, He has declared the old obsolete and near to disappearing.

This is the specific declaration of New Covenant law, supported by a library of collaborative scripture.....

1 John 3:23 "And this is his commandment: that we believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he commanded us."

This Love is the Called For Fulfillment of the Law In Mat_5:17:

Rom 13:10 Love does not commit evil against a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
Rom 8:4 in order that the requirement of the law would be fulfilled in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
Rom 10:4 Christ is the culmination of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.

The Death of Jesus Accomplished Everything Per Mat_5:18:

John 19:30 When he had received the drink, Jesus said, "It is finished." With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

Faith Expressed as Love is the only thing that counts:

Gal 5:6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.
