Friday January 18th, Matthew 3: 15 Jesus replied, "Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness." Then John consented. For Matthew it is important to show that Jesus fulfills all righteousness. Matthew casts Jesus as the new Moses who brings the new law to the people and frees them once again from all that enslaves them. As the children of God we fulfill all righteousness simple by being a child of God. For what shines through is not ourselves, but God’s righteousness.
