Jesus teachings on the Mount provided the perfect summary of the law to one single command "LOVE". Jesus Himself fulfilled the law as he lived up to all that he taught and thus was the only one to fulfil and to be what the Old Testament taught and prophesised. He also demonstrated the LOVE of His Father by given His own life as a ransom to redeem humanity from eternal damnation. (SACRIFICIAL LOVE)

Jesus Christ accepted the law in the Old Testament as scriptural authoritative commands which needed to be completed through His Messianic teaching. insightfully, God inspired the scripture and gave the law to regulate some specific human character and to motivate an attitude of reverence for life and for God but Jesus summarised the law (10 commandments) into one Kingdom character call "LOVE" to which all law and prophets hangs (Matthew 22:37-39) and to build the Kingdom character in man.

Jesus warned against religions hypocrisy that anyone who breaks any of these law have broken all. He says: anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever practises and teaches these commands will be called great in the Kingdom of heaven (Matthew 5:19)

Jesus teachings on the Mount simply called people to join God's Kingdom and work toward building kingdom character "LOVE" to be like God. Just ask yourself these question: do I truly LOVE my neighbour like myself? Do I have Kingdom character in me? Whatever you ask in His name is what you’ll get. ASK JESUS TO BUILD THIS UNIQUE KINGDOM CHARACTER IN YOU NOW.
