to believe that Jesus did not mean
that the law of MoBes was to last
(3.) How did Christ fulfill every "Jot
and tittle" of the law of Moses, spir
itual, moral, political and ceremonial?
(4.) Verse 19.?What was the final
end, purpose or object of the com
mandments of Mo*es?
(5.) If a disciple of Christ at that
time had taught against the least of
the Old Testament commandments,
what would he have lost thereby?
(6.) If a disciple of Christ now
teaches against thw keeping of the
ceremonial law or the moral law as
exemplified by the "eye for an eye"
and the "tooth for a tooth" command
ments of the Old Testament, how does
God regard him?
(7.) Verso 20?What did Christ mean
by "the righteousness of the scribes
(8.) If a man does an outward good
deed for the sake of custom or policy
or to be seen of men that he would
not do from his own choice, how Is
his deed regarded by God?

two men, one whose motives are pure,
but who blunders in carrying them
out, and one whose motives are im

punish when an outward crime had
actually been committed. How dees

(12.) If a man secretly plans a mur
der and lacks the opportunity of com
mitting it he is innocent nt law.
Would you say that he is just as
guilty before God as if he had com
mitted it? Why?
(13.) Does Christ teach that wicked
anger or hatred is regarded by God
as murder, and, If not, what does he
mean? (See I John 111:15.)
(14.) What does Jesus here mean by
the various degrees of punishment
represented by the ""judgment," the
"council" and "hell fire?"
