State the Lord's purpose concerning the law. "The Lord is well pleased for His righteousness' sake; He will magnify the law and make it honorable." Isa. 42:21.
Why was it necessary to magnify the law? "It is time for thee, Lord, to work; for they have made void thy law." Ps. 119:126.
How was the law "made void" when Christ was on the earth?" And He said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition." Mark 7:9 (Matt. 15:1-9).
What was Christ's attitude toward the law?" Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill." Matt. 5:17.
