Jesus Fulfilled the Law (Matt. 5:17)

This is by no means a complete study on Jesus fulfilling the law. It is just one example that I came across the other day while I was reading.

Numbers 35:33
33 So ye shall not pollute the land wherein ye are: for blood it defileth the land: and the land cannot be cleansed of the blood that is shed therein, but by the blood of him that shed it.

Shed blood pollutes and defiles the land. The only way the land can be cleansed is by the blood of the one who defiled the land by shedding blood.

Jesus took our sin upon Himself when He died. He died in the place of every sinner. (2Corinthians 5:21, Romans 4:25, 1Timothy 2:6) That being said, He took on the sin of the shedder of blood and then cleansed the land by the shedding of His own blood.

If the people, in general, of any nation will accept this sacrifice and turn their lives and country to God to do His will, their land will be cleansed. (2Chronicles 7:14) Jesus has shed His blood to make it possible.

Grace and peace,
