Meaning of "fulfilled" in the Gospel of Matthew

Discuss either theological doctrines, ideas about God, or Biblical criticism. I don't want any debates about creation vs evolution.

So does fulfilled mean Christians aren't under the old law? There is still debates for Christians to have followed all the Mosaic law

That is what Christians say, but it requires twisting the word "fulfilled" to mean something else.

Every covenant in the Bible builds on the one before; it adds new laws but removes none. This supposed new covenant - the details of which are absent from the Bible - is unlike all the rest. Despite Jesus specifically saying he was not changing the Law at all.
