Jesus' Teaching on God's Law
"Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets.
Perhaps the most widespread controversies about the teachings of Jesus concern His attitude toward the laws of God recorded in the Old Testament.
The approach of most churches and denominations regarding Jesus is that He brought a new teaching differing considerably from the instructions of the Old Testament. The common view is that the teachings of Christ in the New Testament annulled and replaced the teachings of the Old Testament. But do they?
It doesn't ultimately matter what people say about Him. Nor does it really matter what interpretations they give of what He said. What truly matters is what He really said, and whether we're going to believe and accept what He said.
Clear statement in the Sermon on the Mount
The Sermon on the Mount is a good place to begin. Since this is the longest recorded statement of Jesus Christ's teachings, we should expect to find in it His view toward the laws of God as recorded in the Old Testament. . .

"Happy are those who live pure lives,
who follow the Lord's teachings.
Happy are those who keep his rules,
who try to obey him with their whole heart.
They don't do what is wrong; they follow his ways.
Lord you gave your orders to be obeyed completely.
I wish I were more loyal in obeying your demands.
The I would not be ashamed when I study your commands.
When I learn that your laws are fair, I praise you with an honest heart.
I will obey your demands, so please don't ever leave me. "
