17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. 19 Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
I’m really curious about this. My recollection, having grown up in Christianity, is that when Jesus came, we no longer bound by the OT law. I’m guessing there are other areas in the NT that comment on this, I just don’t remember what/where they are. But, either way, these verses seem pretty clear that the law will not go away and that we are to still follow it.
Can anyone help me out on this one?
