16 [a]The Law and the Prophets endured until John: and since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.
17 Now it is more easy that heaven and earth should pass away, than that one tittle of the Law should fall.
18 ¶ Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, commiteth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her [b]that is put away from her husband, commiteth adultery.
Luke 16:16The Pharisees despised the excellency of the new Covenant, in respect of the old, being ignorant of the perfect righteousness of the Law, and how false expounders they were of the Law, Christ declareth by the seventh Commandment.
Luke 16:18They that gather by this place, that a man cannot be married again after that he hath put away his wife for adultery, while she liveth, reason fondly: for Christ speaketh of those divorces which the Jews used, of which sort we cannot take the divorcement for adultery, for adulterers were put to death by the law.
