“More Righteous than the Pharisees” Matt 5:20

The Spoken Word Christian Church https://thespokenwordchurch.com

In today’s message, Teaching Pastor John reveals the clever teaching strategy Jesus uses to explain to his disciples that the Pharisees had been neglecting the more important matters of the law – justice, mercy and faithfulness. After the cross, these matters of the heart which reflect the character of God, become the new Law of Christ, written on the hearts of all who believe.

Our Bible text for Today’s Message is from Matt 5:20

The Fulfillment of the Law

20 For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven.
