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

17 "Do not suppose that I have come to do away with the Law or the Prophets. I have not come to do away with them but to enforce them. 18  For I tell you, as long as heaven and earth endure, not one dotting of an i or crossing of a t will be dropped from the Law until it is all observed. 19 Anyone, therefore, who weakens one of the slightest of these commands, and teaches others to do so, will be ranked lowest in the Kingdom of Heaven; but anyone who observes them and teaches others to do so will be ranked high in the Kingdom of Heaven.
