The reason is because He knew God had sent Him into the world for one reason: To become the complete and final sacrifice for our sins. The Bible says, “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us , so that in him we might become the righteousness of God” (2 Corinthians 5:21).
The World English Bible translates the passage as: “Don’t think that I came to destroy the law or the. prophets. I didn’t come to destroy, but to fulfill.”
