Matthew 5:17-20
"Jesus and the Law"

In this text we encounter words on the lips of Jesus that will likely surprise us — even trouble us.  He speaks about the Old Testament and its continuing role in the life of Christian faith.  The key to understanding what exactly he is saying comes in the fact that Jesus “fulfills” all that we find in God’s written and revealed Word.  When we grasp what Jesus is saying, we will be deeply encouraged and inspired as we follow Him as His disciples.
