To circle back to the to the parable, we find the rest of the story: The marriage feast indeed is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy; go therefore to the crossroads, and invite to the marriage feast whomever you shall find.’ In other words, the marriage feast continues, the covenant of God established on Abraham, was and is still present. The destruction of the temple was not end of the covenant but its fulfillment. For He who prophesied the destruction said: Do not think that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets. I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For amen I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot, or one tittle shall not pass of the law, till all be fulfilled (Matthew 5:17-18).
And Thus, His Majesty, Our Lord Jesus fulfilled the laws of Moses. What Holy Moses said of the Covenant: Moses wrote all the words of the Lord: and rising in the morning he built an altar at the foot of the mount, and twelve titles according to the twelve tribes of Israel. And he sent young men of the children of Israel, and they offered holocausts, and sacrificed pacific victims of calves to the Lord. Then Moses took half of the blood, and put it into bowls: and the rest he poured upon the altar. And taking the book of the covenant, he read it in the hearing of the people: and they said: All things that the Lord hath spoken we will do, we will be obedient. And he took the blood and sprinkled it upon the people, and he said: This is the blood of the covenant which the Lord hath made with you concerning all these words (Exodus 24:4-8). These acts were fulfilled in the Messiah, Christ Jesus. And taking the chalice, He gave thanks, and gave to them, saying: Drink ye all of this. For this is my blood of the new testament, which shall be shed for many unto remission of sins (Matthew 26:27).
Thus, His majesty ushered in His Covenant, built upon the promise of Abraham and through the fulfilled Laws of Moses. Our Lord then, opened the Covenant, fulfilled by Him, to all people and those who refused Him, voluntary left the faith and covenant of God. They went out from us, but they were not of us. For if they had been of us, they would no doubt have remained with us; but that they may be manifest, that they are not all of us (1 John 2:22).
The promise of Abraham is the Messiah. Know ye therefore, that they who are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. And the scripture, foreseeing, that God justified the Gentiles by faith, told unto Abraham before: In thee shall all nations be blessed. Therefore, they that are of faith, shall be blessed with faithful Abraham. For as many as are of the works of the law, are under a curse. For it is written: Cursed is every one, that abided not in all things, which are written in the book of the law to do them. But that in the law no man is justified with God, it is manifest: because the just man lived by faith. But the law is not of faith: but, He that doth those things, shall live in them. Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written: Cursed is every one that hanged on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Christ Jesus: that we may receive the promise of the Spirit by faith (Galatians 3:7-14).
The covenant is the Church, which is in a spiritual sense the same entity as Israel, is now opened to all. Making no distinction between the decedents of the old covenant or the Gentiles. For you are all the children of God by faith, in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized in Christ, have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek: there is neither bond nor free: there is neither male nor female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you be Christ’s, then are you the seed of Abraham, heirs according to the promise (Galatians 3: 26-29).
It should be noted also the evangelical position on Genesis 12:2-3, as God speaking of the decedents of the Hebrews and not the Church is rendered totally condemned by scripture. Those decedents of the Hebrews that still live in rejection of their messiah, do not hold any familiarity with God and should be evangelized, contrary to the notions of Protestants and modernists. Who is a liar, but he who denied that Jesus is the Christ? This is Antichrist, who denied the Father, and the Son. Whosoever denied the Son, the same hath not the Father. He that confessed the Son, hath the Father also. As for you, let that which you have heard from the beginning, abide in you. If that abide in you, which you have heard from the beginning, you also shall abide in the Son, and in the Father. And this is the promise which he hath promised us, life everlasting (1 John 2: 22-25).
Not only do those decedents of the Hebrews who reject Christ not follow the old law but an entirely new system of beliefs that has nothing to do with the laws of Moses or the Temple of Solomon. and thou art blasphemed by them that say they are Jews and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan (Revelations 2:9).
Even if, the temple was to be rebuilt and the sacrifices and priests restored, those acts would not be hallowed by God but a blasphemy against Him. The Sacred places, acts, and customs of the of the Laws of Moses are fulfilled in Christ through His sacraments and are therefore dead. That you were at that time without Christ, being aliens from the conversation of Israel, and strangers to the testament, having no hope of the promise, and without God in this world. But now in Christ Jesus, you, who some time were afar off, are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and breaking down the middle wall of partition, the enmities in his flesh: Making void the law of commandments contained in decrees; that he might make the two in himself into one new man, making peace; And might reconcile both to God in one body by the cross, killing the enmities in himself (Ephesians 2:12-16).
The Church continues on the matter of the Old Law: It firmly believes, professes and teaches that the legal prescriptions of the old Testament or the Mosaic law, which are divided into ceremonies, holy sacrifices and sacraments, because they were instituted to signify something in the future, although they were adequate for the divine cult of that age, once our lord Jesus Christ who was signified by them had come, came to an end and the sacraments of the new Testament had their beginning. Whoever, after the passion, places his hope in the legal prescriptions and submits himself to them as necessary for salvation and as if faith in Christ without them could not save, sins mortally. It does not deny that from Christ’s passion until the promulgation of the gospel they could have been retained, provided they were in no way believed to be necessary for salvation. But it asserts that after the promulgation of the gospel they cannot be observed without loss of eternal salvation. Therefore, it denounces all who after that time observe circumcision, the sabbath and other legal prescriptions as strangers to the faith of Christ and unable to share in eternal salvation, unless they recoil at some time from these errors. Therefore it strictly orders all who glory in the name of Christian, not to practice circumcision either before or after baptism, since whether or not they place their hope in it, it cannot possibly be observed without loss of eternal salvation-Converts should be forbidden, under pain of severe penalties, to bury the dead according to the Jewish custom or to observe in any way the sabbath and other solemnities and rites of their old sect. Rather, they should frequent our churches and sermons, like other Catholics, and conform themselves in everything to Christian customs. Those who show contempt for the above should be delated to the diocesan bishops or inquisitors of heresy by their parish priests, or by others who are entrusted by law or ancient custom with inquiring into such matters, or by anyone else at all. Let them be so punished, with the aid of the secular arm if need be, as to give an example to others- similarly we too to whom, though unworthy, the lord Jesus Christ has deigned to entrust his people, as we hear of the abominable crime that certain wicked men dwelling in Basel have plotted in these days so as to breach the unity of holy church, and since we fear that they may seduce some of the unwary by their deceits and inject them with their poisons, are forced to proclaim in like words to the people of our lord Jesus Christ entrusted to us, depart from the tents of these wicked men, particularly since the Christian people is far more numerous than the Jewish people of those days, the church is holier than the synagogue, and the vicar of Christ is superior in authority and status even to Moses. Session 11, Ecumenical Council of Florence. Therefore, those who continue to practice the Old laws, even if just in name, blaspheme and sin against God. Bring forth therefore fruit worthy of penance. And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham for our father. For I tell you that God is able of these stones to raise up children to Abraham. For now, the axe is laid to the root of the trees. Every tree therefore that doth not yield good fruit, shall be cut down, and cast into the fire (Matthew 3:8-10).
