Short Reflection on Today's Gospel (Matthew 5:17-19)
Jesus’ approach towards the law of God can be summed up in the great prayer of Psalm 119: “Oh, how I love your law!  It is my meditation all the day.” For the people of Israel the “law” could refer to the 10 commandments or to the five Books of Moses, called the Pentateuch, which give details the commandments and orders of God for his people. The “law” also referred to the whole instruction or way of life which God gave to his people. The Jews in Jesus’ time also used it as a explanation of the oral or scribal law. Needless to say, the scribes added many additional things to the law than God intended. That is why Jesus frequently condemned the scribal law. It placed burdens on people which God had not planned. Jesus, however, made it very clear that the spirit of God’s law – his commandments and way of life, must be pleased. The law of God is truth and when we live according to that truth it makes the fruits of righteousness, sanctity, peace, and joy.
