Matthew 5:34 - 5:37
In Matthew 5:34 - 5:37, Jesus teaches about righteousness and the law. He gives two illustrations of the law showing concern for justice, specifically relating to divorce and the importance of keeping vows. The speaker explains that while there is nothing inherently wrong with taking an oath in the name of God and keeping it, Jesus is cautioning against making false promises and directly lying. The speaker clarifies that Jesus is not saying that all oaths are wrong, but rather that people should be truthful and not use God's name in vain.
