The Sermon On The Mount: The Law And The Prophets Fulfilled

17 Do not think, that I came to pull down the law, or the prophets, - I came not to pull down, but to fulfil. 18 For, verily, I say unto you, until the heaven and the earth shall pass away, one least letter, or one point, may in nowise pass away from the law, till all be accomplished. 19 Whosoever, therefore, shall relax one of these commandments, the least, and teach men so, shall be called, least, in the kingdom of the heavens; but, whosoever shall do and teach, the same, shall be called, great, in the kingdom of the heavens.
