Heart of the Law

About

In the Lord’s Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:38-39), Jesus states, “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ But I tell you, Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.” Some believe that Jesus was saying that “eye for an eye” was no longer valid, thus should not be part of our lives. Yet others believe that Jesus was telling His followers that we have wrongly interpreted the principle. Is it possible that He, Jesus, was saying that there was a more noble application to the “eye for an eye” principle than retribution? Could it be that Jesus was not eliminating this long-lasting law, rather He wanted us to get to the “heart” of this law?
