Preparing the Way for Jesus, Part 36

Christ’s fulfillment of the law did not take effect until after his resurrection. Therefore, all of those who encountered Jesus encountered him while living under the authority of the Old Testament. Jesus was still in the process of fulfilling those laws when Jesus encountered Martha, Mary, and Lazarus. The presence of Jesus always changed the “room” so to speak when Jesus showed up (unless he chose not to). I find this still to be true today. When truth enters the room, lies and deception are exposed and the folly of the wisdom of man falls short. Jesus not only speaks truth, He IS truth. Jesus not only lived a holy life, He IS holy. Jesus is not only the son of God, He IS God.
