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

17 Don't think that I am come to abolish the law or the prophets: I am not come to abolish, but to complete them. 18 I assure you, heaven and earth may as well cease to be, as that one jot or one tittle of the law should fail of its completion. 19 whoever therefore shall break any commandment, tho' of the least importance, and shall teach men so to do, shall not have the least admittance into the kingdom of the Messias: but whoever shall do and teach them, he shall be great in the kingdom of the Messias.
