Matthew 5:20 (New King James Version)
20 For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.
[What was Jesus saying here? Through the Spirit, and only through the Spirit of God, True Righteousness will come, as all the scribes, and Pharisees (teachers and writers of the Law) followed, and were indeed condemned by the Law.]
*Jesus was never governed by the Law, but lead freely with full wisdom and understanding in the Spirit, yet He acknowledged and respected the Law* Food for thought.
