Quote Less> [ " Fulfillment of the 'Law and The Prophets' were done by the Testor(s) dying.... The testors dying did not 'start' the NC, it started the process of ending the OC. The Husband killed by His wife on The Cross (murder). This kicked in the fulfilling terms of the Marriage Contract. The Terms of Blessings and Curses (settling up the estate debits and credits with 'payment). the Blessings (for the Election) of a 'Promised Coming' of the NC Marriage and the world that came with it. The Curses that were spelled out in the OC contract to their utmost. One of those terms was the killing of the Harlot wife (because she was the daughter of a Priest and a murderer).]

The 'Testor' however was not Jesus Christ nor his Father. Without having to go through the entire Sinai account, when the Law was given by an Angel to Moses. Paul indentifies with this in his telling of how Hagar and Ishmael were related to the Law and the Mount Sinai story. He then states that it was not an Angel but Christ Jesus himself who gave him the true Gospel of Mercy through Faith alone.
The subject being, who then was the Giver and who would be the Testor of the Old Covenant of Death which was of the Law.

It was Jesus in the flesh who would bring an end to the Old covenant at the cross.
Jesus in the flesh had the Spirit of the Father dwelling within him, up and till the last moments before he would die in the flesh.
Satan did enter him in the wilderness to tempt him but then departed.
Leaving out terms of divinity be they Good or Evil Spirits, Jesus took on the Spirit of Man in the Flesh through which he could be made corrupt with the sins and evil which Paul said was within the Flesh. ( I think he meant the Conscious Mind though, but it is all within Paul's Christology. )
How the cross impacted all flesh that was pre cross and post AD70 is detailed in Pauline language.
The relatedness of Marriage of individuals and Wholes in regard to male/female and Spirit/Soul was made more clear through Paul's Greek conceptual thinking than the Hebrew concepts of the body ,as individuals or Wholes.
Jesus in the totality of the flesh was the Testor by proxy but Jesus Christ would be the first flesh man to be raised from the dead. It is Jesus Christ who was the first of many that be of the Spirit of Life .
The fulfillment of Grace and Truth through Faith is Life.
