“Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: 17Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.” Col. 2:16-17
The Old Testament is a shadow of things to come. The New Testament is the revealing of that shadow who is Christ. When men go on to practice the ceremonial laws and regulations they are choosing to live in the shadow of Christ. Now why would anyone want to live in His shadow when they can live being part of His body? Don’t walk in the shadow, walk in the light.
