Did Jesus change anything from the Law of Moses with His so-called Sermon on the Mount or was He correcting rabbinical errors that had crept in along the way?
This book argues persuasively that Jesus was not simply rubber-stamping the great hero of the Old Covenant, but was actually presenting Himself as the new and superior lawgiver just as He is the new and superior priest to Aaron. Getting this right (or wrong) has significant implications for how one reads the Bible and, perhaps even more importantly, what standard one uses in his or her pursuit of righteousness. Jesus, not Moses, is our Lord. We must listen to Him.
