Respond to the following in 800â€“1000 words.
During class it was stated that the key to interpreting Matthew is found at 5:17, “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law (Torah) or the Prophets (Nebiim). I have come not to abolish but to fulfill.”
1. How does Matthew have Jesus fulfilling law and prophets?
2. What are some of Rabbi Neusnerâ€™s objections to Jesusâ€™ Sermon on the Mount?
3. How would Rabbi Neusner answer the question, â€œif a little lamb fell into a ditch on the Sabbath, should I rescue it? Would this be â€˜workâ€™ on the Sabbath?â€œ
