Chapter 25. CHRIST, THE FULFILMENT OF THE LAW

Read Chapter 25(CHRIST, THE FULFILMENT OF THE LAW) of the Belgic Confession
...

We believe that the ceremonies and symbols of the law have ceased with the coming of Christ, and that all shadows have been fulfilled,1so that the use of them ought to be abolished among Christians. Yet their truth and substance remain for us in Jesus Christ, in whom they have been fulfilled.2In the meantime we still use the testimonies taken from the law and the prophets, both to confirm us in the doctrine of the gospel and to order our life in all honour, according to God’s will and to His glory.3
