The third possibility is that the law is not for the New Testament Age
There is no evidence from the scriptures that the system of government given by God to Israel was abolished by Jesus ministry. There is no indication in the New Testament that it has been replaced by something else.
Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven (MattThere is no indication that civil government was abolished by Jesus (Rom 13). Therefore we do have a biblical system of government and justice that we can test political issues against.
