Jesus and the Law (1)

Jesus talked frequently talked about the law. His understanding of it was quite different from ours.

Jesus promised blessings for those who are merciful.

Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy (Matt 5:7).
The Mosaic law promised blessings, so it must be merciful. If it seems to be harsh, we must have misunderstood it. Therefore we should choose merciful interpretations over harsh ones.
