Chapter LI.—His Teaching Concerning the Law.
“And His sending to the scribes and teachers of the existing Scriptures, as to those who knew the true things of the law that then was, is well known. And also that He said, I am not come to destroy the law, 996 and yet that He appeared to be destroying it, is the part of one intimating that the things which He destroyed did not belong to the law. And His saying, The heaven and the earth shall pass away, but one jot or one tittle shall not pass from the law, 997 intimated that the things which pass away before the heaven and the earth do not belong to the law in reality.
