Jesus came to bring the Good News (Gospel) of the Kingdom of God and to amend and enlarge the written law due to the better Covenant, as well as explain the spiritural components of said law. He did not destroy it !!! Amendments needed to end sacrifices and Levitical priesthood as Christ became all mankinds sacrifice for sin and is our High Priest forever.

He also came to reveal the Father who no one knew up to then. To establish the ONE Church of God in which He was the Eternal High Priest. Finally, He suffered cruelly and died. His Father resurrected Him as the 1st of many brethren to come into God's Family. His sacrifice was found acceptable for sin.

Jesus is the Head of the Church. Other men throughout history have changed/influenced its original structure and Law. Simply compare the life of Jesus and His Apostles to any Christian Church today. You will see many differences in the myriad of sects that I dub the 'rainbow coalition of Christianity' or in short, 'Churchianity.'


Christ was the long-awaited Messiah of the Old Covenant and fulfilled it. Without Christ there would be no Christianity: Full stop.
