Why Did Christ Come?, Part One

Matthew 5:17  (ID: 1580)

The historical evidence is clear: Jesus undeniably entered human history in Palestine. Why, then, did He come? While some say He came merely to revolutionize the Jewish nation, a divine perspective reveals a more cosmic purpose. Alistair Begg points us to Matthew’s gospel, which shows us that Jesus came to fulfill the Bible’s testimony about the Messiah and stand sovereign over all Creation.


Christ Came to Fulfill the Law

17“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.
