Question are closed because it says it is a duplicate. Link 1 & 2 have been closed as duplicates.

However link 1 & 2 ask about contradiction between Matthew 5:17-20 & Ephesians 2:14-15.

Link 3 only ask about 'Ephesians 2:15 exactly what part of the Law has been abolished?'

You can not explain the contradiction at Matt and Eph on link 3 - otherwise you are not answering the questions.

Link 1 or 2 need to re-open

1 - Why does Jesus say he came not to abolish the law while Paul in Ephesians 2:14-15 say that Christ abolished the law?

2 - Did Ephesians 2:15 intend to contradict Mathew 5:17?

3 - In Ephesians 2:15 exactly what part of the Law has been abolished?

1 Answer 1


I agree that question 2 is not a duplicate of 3, and have reopened it. Thank you for pointing out this inaccurate duplicate closure.

But I think question 1 is a duplicate of 2, so have not reopened it.

  • I have had another look at this and believe that Q1 should be opened as well as it actually asking something different to Q2. Q2 asks if its a deliberate contradiction, (accepting it as a contradiction) arguably what would be the reason for the deliberate contradiction. Yet Q1 is asking something completely different - why Jesus says one thing and Paul says another. Arguably this may not be a contradiction. It would also make sense to open something recent then something so old. They both need to be answered in 2 different ways. May 24, 2022 at 12:43
  • Can you confirm your position on my comment above or do I need to open a new chat Jun 14, 2022 at 13:05
  • @anothertheory My position is what I wrote in the answer. I don't think I need to say anything more. If you think a question should be reopened you are free to vote to reopen it.
