This is a little lengthy but we hope you will read the whole thing. It is our insight into word variations and what they TRULY mean. We have spent a long time researching, studying, and typing this in hope that it reaches somebody that never knew this.

Matthew 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.

We strongly believe we have to search deeper than just the text in our Bibles as the Adversary has confused us with translations. We are not saying the whole Bible is wrong but we must “reproof” our written Bibles with in-depth looks into the translations as sometimes the words get their meanings changed. This verse contains the word Fulfilled. This particular word comes from the Greek word Pleroo. There are other words in the Bible that say fulfilled that do mean complete but those are much different Greek words… (i.e.— Greek = poieo & teleo in some cases for fulfilled but not in the case of the verses we are covering. The verses we are covering use the word Fulfilled/Fulfill from the Greek word Pleroo.

We all know that without the Messiah we would all be condemned but through Him and faith through only Him we have salvation. Keeping that in mind, most teach that HE abolished the Yahweh’s Law given to Mosheh. Remember that that when the Messiah came, at that point, all they had was the Old Testament and Yahweh’s Law that was given to Mosheh.  If you can throw that out, then throw away the Ten Commandments and make sure nobody tells you to Tithe (Give to the poor and needy) because that also comes from the Torah. The Messiah and all HIS followers walked in the Torah way of life.

Here is a side-by-side comparison of two verses:

Matthew 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill (teach fully, bring full meaning to, or to magnify).

The last word is that verse is Fulfill (English) or in GREEK it was derived from (plēroō). Most believe that this means to “complete”. This word means to teach fully, bring full meaning to, or to magnify. SO plug that in and try that verse again.

The Messiah is saying that HE came to teach the LAW to everybody in FULL, TO FULLY TEACH or TO MAGNIFY ITS MEANING. HE was showing us that what the Pharisees were teaching went against Torah. They were adding their own man-made tradition into the teaching of the Torah. The Messiah came to teach what HE meant from the beginning (TORAH). This is still alive today.

Now to show that the word Fulfill in that verse does mean to teach fully, bring full meaning to, or to magnify, here is a verse about something else, using the same word from the Greek word (plēroō).

Romans 15:19 Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have teach fulfilled (fully taught, brought full meaning to, or to magnified) the gospel of Christ.

If we are taught the word Fulfill in the Matthew verse above means COMPLETED then insert COMPLETED into this Romans verse where Paul says (fulfilled) below because that word in the original Greek writings was plēroō, the same word that appears in the Matthew verse above.

Romans 15:19 Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fulfilled (insert COMPLETED here ) the gospel of Christ. (this would mean he is done and no longer needed). Could you imagine if Paul quit preaching at that point and decided that his job was Completed?

Here is another verse that has to do with Fulfill (Plēroō from Greek)

Luke 4:21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.
If you substitute the word “completed” for Fulfilled that would mean that the scripture has been completed in your ear. How can anything be completed inside an ear? If the scriptures were completed in this Luke verse we wouldn’t need the rest of the Bible after Luke supposedly completed it in everybody’s ear. The word Fufilled in that Luke verse means to bring meaning to. If you hear something that doesn’t quite make sense, somebody can come along and bring meaning to what you are hearing and then it would make sense to you. Our Messiah brought meaning to the old law and magnified it. HE showed us that we are to be obedient to HIS commands since the beginning and have Faith in HIM , HE will “set us free”.

So if anyone says to you “The Messiah did away with the law because he completed it”, you can show these to verses back to back.

Here are a couple other verses we came across. The Messiah didn’t come to complete the law according to these verses.

Here are some verses from John stating the real reason Yeshua came:

1st John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. (So the son of Man, Messiah, was born to destroy the works of the devil…more proof that Fulfill in the Matthew verse can’t mean COMPLETE)

1st John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. (This verse states HE came to show us the TRUTH. It states that those who believe in the TRUTH, follow in TRUTH are of HIM and HIS son the Messiah of Salvation Yeshua? WOW, love this stuff. This again shows that nothing has been COMPLETED.

At Mt. Sinai there were 12 tribes there… One tribe was Tribe of Judah from which Judaism was born.  Rabbinical interpretation of the Torah of today and yesterday is what our Messiah (A Rabbi and Jew) came to teach us to avoid. There is only one interpretation and it is HIS.  Yeshua never taught to throw away the law Yahweh gave to Mosheh,  which most of Christianity has been taught is only for the Jewish Religion. There are plenty of things that are taught that aren’t scriptural and if the Messiah was here today HE would be doing the same to Christianity that HE did to the Pharisees and Sadducees. HE would be pointing out the flaws in their teachings that go against HIS perfect word from the beginning.

    Who was the Law given to? The nation of Israel. Jesus came to set us free from the Law because mankind couldn’t keep the Law. They failed miserably and by the way continue to fail. Interestingly, the Messiah came to set the Jewish people free but most of them rejected Him and had Him crucified and most of them still reject him. You want us to follow the Old Covenant, knowing they it won’t be successful! Look, I have no problem with anyone who wants to follow the Old Covenant after all He gave us free will

    I think the problem is that you who believe this overlook the application of it all.

    It amazes me how things are pulled out of the scriptures to justify what one’s opinion. Did He not send his Holy Spirit to lead and guide us? How can you pick and choose what part of the law you want to obey. Doesn’t the scripture say if you break one of the laws, you break them all. Man didn’t succeed then and the only way they succeed now is because Yeshua was the only one who was capable of doing it and he covers us. Good luck with trying to keep the law. There is only one Savior by the way and one truth.

    WOW. A lot to respond to but everything you state, like almost verbatim, are the teachings of centuries of biblical change. If all that was true…Why were ALL the Taught Ones following Torah well after Yeshua died? Was it habit? Was it religion? The answer is that is was obedience. They love YHVH so much they did their best to be obedient to His commands. (John 14:15). There are no Old and New covenants per say. That is another Marcion teachings. There are renewed covenants as we fail.

    You are so far off with your exegesis it is scary……. actually, you remind me more of the leader of mormons or jehovah witnesses…….. Theologians for centuries WHO TRULY LOVE TRUTH spent their lives investigating the Holy Scriptures PAINSTAKINGLY……ETC…… Then in the last decade or even a few decades people come out of the woodwork and change things around for so many different reasons. Usually because they do not like the outcome. Remember God through the Holy Spirit wrote the Bible in such a way that naysayers looking for their own ideas can find it! Why do you think Jesus spoke in parables. But go ahead and march to your own drum we will see at the end for sure. Good luck in obeying everything perfectly!!!

    We all fall short… As far as changing things, the things were changed the most by the Church over the last 2000 years. Just have to research and find out how, when, and why.
