Mat 5:17-19 CEV  Don’t suppose that I came to do away with the Law and the Prophets. I did not come to do away with them, but to give them their full meaning. (18)  Heaven and earth may disappear. But I promise you that not even a period or comma will ever disappear from the Law. Everything written in it must happen.

But if you obey and teach others its commands, you will have an important place in the kingdom.
