To 'fulfil' a law is surely to enact it.


Looking at the full verse, it would appear that the character in the story is saying that the hundreds of laws from the Covenant are still relevant for everyone even after Jesus does his Jesus thing:

"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."

Because, obviously, Earth hasn't passed away because we're here.

It doesn't look like it is the Law that needs 'fulfilling', but God's plans having to do with Heaven and Earth. Only then will the Laws become irrelevant.
