Luke 16:16-17 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Sayings About the Law. 16 “The law and the prophets lasted until John;[a] but from then on the kingdom of God is proclaimed, and everyone who enters does so with violence. 17 It is easier for heaven and earth to pass away than for the smallest part of a letter of the law to become invalid.

Footnotes:

  1. 16:16 John the Baptist is presented in Luke’s gospel as a transitional figure between the period of Israel, the time of promise, and the period of Jesus, the time of fulfillment. With John, the fulfillment of the Old Testament promises has begun.
