Matthew 5:17-20

“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. 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. 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. For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven” – Indeed, Jesus did not ignore or dismiss the Old Testament (i.e., the Law and the Prophets) and neither should the church today. And while we are under grace in the New Covenant through Christ, the fact remains that if the church today continues to hold the Law and the Prophets in the same regard as did the Pharisees (they preferred their traditions over God’s word), many in the Church may find themselves on the outside looking in when the Lord returns for His saints!
