(2) By the Law and the Prophets are meant the great Rules of Lift delivered in the Writings of Moses and the Prophets, or in the Old Testament, more especially the Duties of the nural or iiitural Law. These cur Lord assures us, he did not come to destroy or di/solve: It was not his design to free Men from the Obligation they were under to practise the moral Laws of God, but to fulfil and perfect them. This our Lord did, by living up to> those Laws himself, and becoming thereby an Example to us, by freeing them from the corrupt Glosses which the Teachers among the Jews put upon them, and by expounding them in their fullest Sense, and according to their just Latitude, sliewing, that they command not only an outward Obedience, but the Obedience even or the Mind and Thoughts, as appears from what our Lord delivers in the following Verses. These Laws have their Foundation in the reason and nature of Things, and therefore their Obligation will never cease. We may as well suppose that Heaven and Earth should fass away, as that any of them should n6t be required of us.

The Ceremonial Law was dissolved by the Coming of Christ. For he being come who was figured and represented by the Rites, Sacrifices, &c. they were of no further Use. But the natural or motal Law, which our Saviour hassumm'd up in these two Precepts, [iht Love of God above all, and our Neighbour 4s our Selves] is as much in Force now as ever. It is as much a Rule of Life now, as ever it was. And though compleat and perfect Obedience is not made a Condition of Salvation, yet a sincere and universal one it. See A, Bp TiSotfons Sermon on these Words, Vol. 4.

(3) The Greek Word signifies to lock or dissolve. As if our Lord had said, if any Man shall be so bold, as to free himself or others from the Obligation to obey these Commandments of
