Christ Jesus is the spirit and the truth of all the figures that have passed away, the end and fulfilment of the law of figures, but the beginning of the true substance and completeness eternally (Jn. 6:63, 14:6, Rom. 10:4). In Christ Jesus, says the apostle, is genuine substance (Eph. 4:21). In him are hid all the treasures of the wisdom and knowledge of God (Col. 2:3). Indeed, in him dwells the fullness of the Godhead bodily, and all shadows and figures are fulfilled in him.
