People's Bible Notes for Matthew 5:18
Mt 5:18 Verily I say unto you. This formula always introduces a very emphatic saying. It occurs thirty times in Matthew. See notes on Mr 3:28 Lu 4:24 Joh 3:3. One jot or one tittle. "Jot" means the smallest letter of the Hebrew alphabet, while "tittle" refers to a simple turn by which one letter is distinguished from another. The expression, "jot or tittle", was proverbial for the smallest part. Till all be fulfilled. Says Dr. Schaff, ``"Till" implies that after the great events of Christ's life, and the establishment of his kingdom, the old dispensation, as a dispensation of the letter and yoke of bondage, as a system of types and shadows, will pass away, and has passed away (Eph 2:15 Col 2:14 Heb 8:13); while the spirit and substance of the law, i.e., love to God and man, will last forever.''
