The Kingdom's Law (Mt 5:17-24)

The Kingdom's Law (Mt 5:17-24)

After talking about the character of his Kingdom disciples and their impact on the world, Jesus starts to clear up misconceptions about the Christian’s new relationship with God’s law. We learn that God doesn’t grade on a curve, that the law is more like an X-ray than a camera, and that Jesus himself fulfills and restores the law for his people. How does he fulfill and restore the law? In his life (perfectly satisfying “every jot and tittle” of the law of love), his death (bearing the consequences of the law’s penalty), and through his Spirit-empowered people (by giving us a new heart, capable of obeying and loving the law now).
