“He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near. For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.”
Jesus is the fulfillment of the Law. The Law of the Spirit of life in Jesus Christ has set us free from the Law of sin and death. Israel was required to make atonement for their sins through offerings and sacrifices – according to the Law set in place by God Himself. This Law was only one stop along the way to the “fullness” of our redemption found only through Jesus Christ. Our Father, in His loving mercy, chose to slowly unravel the redemption plan to offer reconciliation to all people which included both Jew and Gentile, through Jesus by the same Holy Spirit.
