Matthew 5:17 - 5:20 (Part 3)

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In this discussion, Steve Gregg delves into the weighty matters of the Law and how Jesus went beyond it. While the Pharisees focused on outward displays of righteousness, Jesus taught that love was the most important aspect of the Law. Gregg emphasizes that justice, mercy, and faithfulness are vital components in treating others the way God intended. It is not enough to simply avoid murder or other unjust actions; one must also have a heart of mercy and kindness towards others.
