Matthew 5:17-22; Hebrews 13:8; Matthew 5:27-32; Matthew 5:48; John 6:28-29; Romans 3:19-24


Jesus made it clear to the Pharisees that their interpretation of the Law fell way short of God's. The Law wasn't meant to show people the path to righteousness, but to show people their sin and that they need God's grace. God's Law isn't something we can bend to fit our moral inclinations, but a strong moral law that shows people their moral inadequacy compared to God's perfect moral standard.
