We are constantly told that Torah ended at the cross. Yet, those who make this argument overlook, or ignore the consistent testimony of scripture about the time of the arrival of salvation and the end of Torah.
Take a look at the chart below as it relates to this critical Issue:
Luke 21– Fall of Jerusalem (v. 20f)– Days of Vengeance fulfilled (v. 22)– Coming of Redemption and the Kingdom (v. 28, 32)— At Coming of the Lord (v.26f)— In Jesus’ generation (v.32)
Hebrews 9-10– End of Old Covenant system (9:26) Time of Vengeance (10:26-37)– Entrance into Most Holy Place (9:6f)— At Coming of the Lord (10:37)— In a very, very little while (10:37)
Revelation 15-19– Completion of God’s Wrath (15:2)– Judgment on Babylon (16:7f)– (Likewise arrival of the kingdom at the judgment of the city where the Lord was slain, 11:8-18) — Entrance into Most Holy Place (15:1, 8)— At Coming of the Lord (19)— “Behold I come quickly” (22:12, 20)
In Luke, the judgment against Jerusalem would fulfill God’s vengeance and bring the kingdom and redemption.
Hebrews (10:26-37) depicts the removal of the Old Covenant system, (at the time of Christ’s coming in judgment) as opening the way to the Most Holy Place.
In Revelation, God’s wrath is consummated in the judgment against Babylon, resulting in access to the Most Holy Place. The parallels positively identify Babylon as Jerusalem.
In Revelation, “Babylon” stood as a barrier between man and the Most Holy Place. Biblically only one city stood as the symbol both of the presence and the barrier to God.
That city was old Covenant Jerusalem.
There is much, much more on this in my newly revised Who Is This Babylon book, available from this website.
