What do the scriptures on anger have to say. And, specifically, what does Jesus teach us on anger in the sermon on the mount?
Jesus told his followers at his famous sermon on the mount that he came to fulfill, not abolish the Law and the Prophets as he sets the stage to speak of anger. This fulfillment isn’t going to break the Law of Moses, but transform and transcend and “enhance” or “go beyond” what Moses taught. This is in stark contrast to rejecting the Old Testament just as mercy does not reject justice; it presupposes it, but goes beyond it.
So, what does Jesus say about anger and going beyond the mere Laws prescribed by Moses? Check out this video and find out.
