This was important. To tell them that previously, what they were being taught, were almost half-truths and not the full meaning of what God had commanded. It’s more than following a set of rules. Our heart matters. Our motives matter.

Let’s take a look at Exodus 20 & Matthew 5-7 to see what Jesus teaches and how we can focus our hearts on what matters most.
