Sorry Sciota . . . Christ is the living Word of God. He fulfilled the prophesies inspired by God about His coming that were "written in ink" in the OT under the veil of ignorance . . . but HE is the LIVING Word of God and His mind and Spirit is our guide.

1 John 2:27 (King James Version)

27But the anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in Him.
2 Corinthians 3:14-17

But their minds were blinded:(blind mind = ignorance) for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.
15But even unto this day, when Moses (the Pentateuch) is read, the vail is upon their heart.
16Nevertheless when it (the heart) shall turn to the Lord,(Jesus) the vail shall be taken away.
17Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

2 Corinthians 3: 2-6 (King James Version)

2Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men:

3Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.

4And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward:

5Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;

6Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

My point is Mystic, Christ fulfilled the Law, He did not dissolve it or destroy it. Knowing this is having the mind of Christ. Paul said so IMO, as he plainly went through it in the 1st chapter and 2nd chapter leading up to it with his reasonings for this regenerate nature of the mind of Christ. I disagree with you.
I think your hermeneutics is disregarding the context here and I believe you are all developing some unrevealed state of mind. It doesn't weigh up against the scripture.
