to destroy the law
Luke 16:17
But it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away, than for one dot of the law to become void.
John 8:5
Now in the law Moses commanded us to stone such. What do you say about her?"
Acts 6:13
and set up false witnesses who said, "This man never ceases to speak words against this holy place and the law;
Acts 18:13
saying, "This man is persuading men to worship God contrary to the law."
Acts 21:28
crying out, "Men of Israel, help! This is the man who is teaching men everywhere against the people and the law and this place; moreover he also brought Greeks into the temple, and he has defiled this holy place."
Romans 3:31
Do we then overthrow the law by this faith? By no means! On the contrary, we uphold the law.
Romans 10:4
For Christ is the end of the law, that every one who has faith may be justified.
Galatians 3:17-24
This is what I mean: the law, which came four hundred and thirty years afterward, does not annul a covenant previously ratified by God, so as to make the promise void.
For if the inheritance is by the law, it is no longer by promise; but God gave it to Abraham by a promise.
Why then the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the offspring should come to whom the promise had been made; and it was ordained by angels through an intermediary.
Now an intermediary implies more than one; but God is one.
Is the law then against the promises of God? Certainly not; for if a law had been given which could make alive, then righteousness would indeed be by the law.
But the scripture consigned all things to sin, that what was promised to faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.
Now before faith came, we were confined under the law, kept under restraint until faith should be revealed.
So that the law was our custodian until Christ came, that we might be justified by faith.
Matthew 3:15
But Jesus answered him, "Let it be so now; for thus it is fitting for us to fulfil all righteousness." Then he consented.
Psalm 40:6-8
Thou hast multiplied, O LORD my God, thy wondrous deeds and thy thoughts toward us; none can compare with thee! Were I to proclaim and tell of them, they would be more than can be numbered.
Sacrifice and offering thou dost not desire; but thou hast given me an open ear. Burnt offering and sin offering thou hast not required.
Then I said, "Lo, I come; in the roll of the book it is written of me;
Isaiah 42:21
The LORD was pleased, for his righteousness' sake, to magnify his law and make it glorious.
Romans 8:4
in order that the just requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
Galatians 4:4
But when the time had fully come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law,
Galatians 4:5
to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.
Colossians 2:16
Therefore let no one pass judgment on you in questions of food and drink or with regard to a festival or a new moon or a sabbath.
Colossians 2:17
These are only a shadow of what is to come; but the substance belongs to Christ.
Hebrews 10:3-12
But in these sacrifices there is a reminder of sin year after year.
For it is impossible that the blood of bulls and goats should take away sins.
Consequently, when Christ came into the world, he said, "Sacrifices and offerings thou hast not desired, but a body hast thou prepared for me;
in burnt offerings and sin offerings thou hast taken no pleasure.
Then I said, `Lo, I have come to do thy will, O God,' as it is written of me in the roll of the book."
When he said above, "Thou hast neither desired nor taken pleasure in sacrifices and offerings and burnt offerings and sin offerings" (these are offered according to the law),
then he added, "Lo, I have come to do thy will." He abolishes the first in order to establish the second.
And by that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
And every priest stands daily at his service, offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins.
But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God,
