16 In the same way, let your light shine[a] before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.(A)

Christ Fulfills the Law

17 “Don’t assume that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill.(B) 18 For I assure you: Until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter[b] or one stroke of a letter will pass from the law until all things are accomplished.
