You left out the enormous difference that Bill clearly stated (bolded by me): "So it is OK for Jesus to reinterpret the OT to give the text new meaning but it is NOT OK for us to reinterpret the OT to give it a more correct meaning?"
Was your omission intentional? It goes to the heart of my question, Mike.
Bill wasn't denying that, because he made an important distinction that you omitted. Was your omission deliberate?
Your citation of a different passage doesn't address Jesus's quoting, direct contradiction, and repudiation of the OT passage in Matthew.
I sure do! If He didn't, He would have rejected questions about which commandments were more important than others.
I didn't say that He said anything about which were more important, Mike. I said that He put them in different classes, which you very explicitly denied:
So Jesus Christ indeed tells us that there are two classes, one more important than the other.
