Discussion for Matthew 5

    I noticed the are those who look at the beatitudes like commandments. Jesus compacted the commandments into 2; love the Lord with all your heart mind and soul, and love your neighbor as yourself. The beatitudes are love in action as a result of being born again, following Him and bearing fruit.
  • Maria
    The law still stands. Christ said it in v.17. He came to fulfill what was written of him, that he should suffer and be crucified, not to do away with the law. Whosoever breaks one of the least commandments he mentioned in verses 1-16 and teaches others to do the same will not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
