Matthew 5:21 - 5:26

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

Steve Gregg discusses Jesus' interpretation of the law of Moses in Matthew 5:21-26. Jesus provides six examples to illustrate God's concern for giving the law to learn about loving, just, merciful, and faithful dealings. Jesus also emphasizes the importance of settling disputes with our brothers and sisters rather than going to court, as God is concerned with justice and acting justly towards our neighbors. Gregg encourages us to focus on these lessons and their relevance in our daily lives.
