Interpretation of the Holy Bible - St. Matthew : Chapter 5 - lesson 18
- Verse : 18: �I say to you , until heaven and earth passes away, One iota or
one letter shall not pass from the law, until all shall be fulfilled.�
The Law referred is not the scribes law, we just described. The Holy Church
teaches that the old Law ( of Moses ) was the image of the new Law ( by Lord
) and New one is the completion of the Old Testament. We say fulfillment,
it means, giving the essence of the Law to the world.
Our Lord summarized the essence of 10 Laws into two. What we understand
from His words is like this. 1) Devotion (passion, to God and His Name and
to His day). 2) Devotion to ones parents. Respect to life, to persons, to
objects, to the truth. We should be indebted to ourselves by keeping away
from the adulterous thoughts. Righteousness means fulfillment of our duty to
God and human.
