The full verse (I had to look it up):
For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

Don't a lot of christians already claim that all the old testament has been "fulfilled?" In terms of prophecy? Or am I misreading that?

If something is fulfilled it's done. Go ask those Christians whether we can chuck out all the OT laws, including the 10 commandments since there's supposedly done.
Alternatively point out that laws can never be permantly fulfilled. They can only be contiously fulfilled by obeying them and executing the appropriate punishment.

Yeah, this is getting way more theological than I intended.... but....

"Fulfilled." What does it mean? Depends on the individual I suppose. I take it that it isn't referring to "laws" being fulfilled, rather the prophecies. Like scott1328 said... multiple choice. I've never heard that, but I like it. I tend to avoid religious people. I just don't have the patience for them anymore. As a result, my opportunities to "point anything out to them" is rare. My experience is it's a futile exercise.
