Fulfilling It

David Limbaugh:
Unlike certain cultural icons today, Jesus didn't preach what people's itching ears wanted to hear. He didn't cater his sermons to curry favor with the popular culture. He articulated a higher standard of morality than even the Old Testament did.

More importantly, He did not reject but wholeheartedly endorsed the Old Testament generally and specifically. He didn't come to abolish the law but to fulfill it. He said that "until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished," "the scriptures cannot be broken," and, "I am the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob."

Jesus also affirmed the historicity of many important events recorded in the Old Testament, which many today dismiss as mere allegory or pure fiction, such as the creation of Adam and Eve, the flood, Jonah and the whale, the miracles of Elijah, and the miracles of Moses in the wilderness.
Who says the Bible is true? JESUS.

Come now, Mr Skeptic. You know Jesus was totally a real person because of all those Old Testament prophecies predicting his existence.

I believe the theologians refer to Jesus as Alphachicken and Omegga.

Preached some stuff today's itching idiots like Limbaugh don't want to hear either.

Yeah, it wasn't so much the people who didn't like what Jesus said, it was the religious right of the day.
