Matthew 5:17 - 5:20 (Part 2)

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

Steve Gregg analyzes Matthew 5:17-20 in this discussion, presenting an interpretation of Jesus' words regarding the significance of the Law and the prophets. According to Gregg, Jesus did not come to abolish the Law but to fulfill it. While the ceremonial and ritual modes of the Law were transformed into a new spiritual mode, the moral laws, such as the laws of love, remain in place. Gregg argues that by obeying God's laws, Christians demonstrate their commitment to God, even more than the scribes and Pharisees, who simply followed the letter of the Law.
