During the clip of Jesus many did non believe in Him for what He teaches are a contradiction to their beliefs. Pharisees are the 1s who are considered the righteous individuals during that clip. They and the people thought that Jesus’ testimonies are non true because what He teaches and did are against the Law of the Prophets. He opened the oculus of a blind during Sabbath Day which is a wickedness for them.
On Matthew 5:17-20. Jesus said that He cone non to get rid of the Law but to carry through them. Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and Teachs others to make the same will be called least in the land of Eden. but whoever patterns and Teachs these bids will be called great in the land of Eden ( Matthew 5:19 ) . With that history. Jesus is seeking to state that He did non come to get rid of the Law ; in fact He is more concerned with the Law.
The remainder of Matthew 5 gives us a clear idea that Jesus is in favour of the Law. He said on Matthew 5:21-22 that anyone who is angry of his brother will be capable to judgement ( note that in Matthew 5:21 Jesus said: You have heard that it was said to people long ago. ‘Do non slay. and anyone who slayings will be capable to judgement. ’ ) . With that history we can state that the Law is non what the Pharisees think and do. If the Law is like what the Pharisees have thought He would hold non said: For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the instructors of the jurisprudence. you will surely non come in the land of Eden.
Why Jesus did state this? This is because no 1 can obey the jurisprudence all the clip. No who is perfect plenty to non perpetrate wickedness against the Law. That was besides the intent of Christ coming ; to salvage the universe. That why in Ephesians 2:8-9 it says: For it is by grace that you have been saved. through faith – and this is non from yourselves. it is the gift of God- non by plants. so that no 1 can tout.
Actually. Matthew is does non incorporate a Judaic and anti Jewish in Gospel. The affair is non because of the people itself but with the belief and patterns that they have. Jesus is non enforcing a new jurisprudence but instead carry throughing the jurisprudence as what He said. God is non against of the people but He is against of what the people ( evildoers ) have done.
