Matthew 5:19-20 To Ponder

Matthew 5:19-20 (ESV)
19 Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
20 For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

What does this passage mean if the Law of Moses is not binding on Believers or does this mean it is?

What is a “least” commandment?

Is there a difference between Law and Commandments?

What is the Kingdom of Heaven?

  1. That was my husband’s sermon text this morning! This bears much thinking about, doesn’t it?

    Wow! That’s neat that he was preaching on the same topic I was working on. Is it available online?

    I thought I would post about this passage Monday but it has gotten a little long and still unfinished so it will probably be broken into several sections. There really isn’t that many outside resources on this specific passage and breaking it down into understandable parts.
