If someone asked you if the Old Testament law was applicable today how would you respond? The Old Testament and how it applies to believers today is a confusing topic for many. What applies and what does not apply? Do we keep the law or do we not? These are great questions that Jesus will give us some insight on.

Matthew 5:17-20

17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven. (KJV)
