[QUOTE=sangha;1059843532]Your biblical quote refers to "The Law" not to "The Old Testament"[/QUO
The Law is the Torah, which are the first 5 books of the old testament. The Prophets deal with the back 1/2 of the old testament. This leaves the middle of the old testament, which is largely historic telling of the love story between God and his people, particularly featuring Samuel, David and Solomon. This "love story" explains why Christ was sent.
Christ basically affirmed the scriptures. That said, there was a New Covenant put in place with the delivery of Christ as Savior, but even this new covenant was introduced in the old testament.
