A Familiar Subject

When asking people about the Bible, the Ten Commandments are a subject that many people are familiar with, even if they are not familiar with the commandments themselves.

A Surpassing Righteousness

An Important Cornerstone

Righteous living has always been a cornerstone of godly living. Ever since the Creation, God has had the expectation of man and woman that he and she both live according to His command. However, both man and woman failed – as every man and woman have since. So what is Jesus teaching when He declares:

For I say to you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 5:20 (NASU)
