Matthew 5 Bible Study: Forgive, Righteousness Wins

A LOOK INSIDE

The whole idea of this scripture (and the title of the lesson) is shown in the last few verses. You should forgive your brother, your neighbor, and anyone else in need of forgiveness. By forgiving immediately, before you "bring thy gift to the altar," you do not have to worry about anyone you have not forgiven for transgressions. By asking forgiveness immediately, you do not have to worry about anyone you may have offended. What does the phrase "bring thy gift to the altar mean?," you may be wondering. This would refer to the greatest act of worship, which can be known by different names in the Protestant church - communion and eucharist are two that come to mind.

BREAK IT DOWN

MAN'S LAW

Matthew 5:17,18 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For 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.

You may have heard these two verses before. Jesus did not come to abolish the law of the old testament and the prophets, but to fulfill it.

Now for a little information on the Jewish laws of the Old Testament. There were 613 laws with 248 "positive" and 365 "negative" laws.[i] The negative laws were commandments NOT TO DO something while the positive laws were commandments TO DO something. Why were there 365 negative laws? Maybe there was one for every day of the year. Actually, both the positive and negative numbers have anatomical and astronomical significance.
