Jesus said to his disciples:
“Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets.
I have come not to abolish but to fulfill.”
– Matthew 5 : 17 – 19

Jesus fulfills the law not by simply fulfilling each of the many precepts, but by showing where all of the precepts have their end: in loving God above all things. When we obey the law of love we are fulfilling all of the laws – we are bringing them to their natural end.
The law of love reaches to the ends of the earth. There is no created being in the universe that is outside the law of love that Jesus has come to teach us.
