John 14:6Since the coming of Jesus¶ Ministry,the entering into the Kingdom of G-Dis through Jesus alone. A new look ata central Christian verse.
The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of Godis preached, and every man presseth into it.´
Luke 16:16 (King James version)By a closer analysis of the manuscripts that once ran every letter against everyletter in Uncials, we see that Luke 16:16 should have included a word which (I believe) was (mis)sub-divisioned into the next verse.Starting from
ho nomos
(should the Greek text not appear below...), Luke 16:16should end with
eukopoteron
, which I believe is errantly placed in the next verse,whereas it is easily read as the same verse by a reader in the oldest manuscripts.This word is a direct translation of a teaching as found in Matthew 11:28-30 -28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: andye shall find rest unto your souls.30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. 
eu
- meaning good but when used with "burden"
(kopos)
, it means to:make light, easy; even a state of being restful from burdens.
 
 When we preach the Gospel of the Cross, it should be a "learning" experiencewhere also the weight of sin (as a burden) drops off the shoulders, and the Good News of deliverance and Propitiation is indeed, good news...bringing about a stateof rest from anxiety and burdens.Luke 16:16

Then/And it is the Heaven and the Earth to pass away, than of the Law onetittle to fall.
 Does the Law pass away? No. For Jesus has said that it is easier for G-D torecreate the Heavens and the Earth, than to do away with the Instruction.Something has happened with the coming of Christ. There is a state of (theHebraic)
"selah"
or "suspension" of the Instruction / the Law, as it were. A stateof Grace has occurred.John is the last prophet to close out the old Covenant era, in which the way of hopewas through the hardness of Mosaic Law. John would point the way to theEASIER PRESSING into the Kingdom of G-D, the Way of Grace in and throughMessiah: Christ Jesus. The way of grace went from harshness with scatterings of comfort, to the more easily digestible preaching of abundant grace in Christ, andonly scatterings of judgment or wrath for disobedience. With the passing of John,and the coming of Christ the Redeemer, there is no more being saved by the Law
 
without Christ...no more imperfections and short-comings (though allowed duringthe duration from Moses to John) are to be allowed anymore, because that era hasclosed out.The Law is NEVER annulled...Moses is never annulled...a greater than Moses hascome. Who is greater than Moses who gave the Law? Answer: The One who gaveit to Moses. HASHEM alone is the fulfillment of the Law, and HASHEM -- whotook on a clothing of flesh as Christ Jesus -- had arrived! Those who reject Christare left only an alternative to live by the Law of Moses, the which, without theTemple on the Mount, cannot be lived (absent 202 laws of Mosaic LawObservation).Abraham had his Covenant of Faith, and "faith" reigned until Sinai. At Sinai, theLaw came, and the Law of Sinai ruled until John.The Law of Moses until Christ, or, for a limited time:A Hebrew word of importance, as to why the Law of Moses was added, is Hebraic
"Qashah":
spelled as Qoph - Shin - He.
This word is of importance in knowingwhy the Law of Moses was only for a duration, as why it was not, and could not beenough.In Deuteronomy 9:27, Moses himself prayed:"Remember thy servants, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; look not unto thehard*cruel*stubbornness* of this people, nor to their wickedness, nor to their sin." In Jeremiah 7:26, the severity of 
QaSHaH 
has increased 7 fold more -- to a pointof unbearableness, far worse than that of the hard-hearted rebellion of Israel in thewilderness under Moses.The word picture of 
QaSHaH 
here, is likened to a harshly cruel, stubborn (perhapsviciously goring) ox; that, though yoked: is stiff-necked, adamantly refusing to gowhere it is assigned to go, purposely veering as if oblivious to the severest pull of the yoke and to all reins or beatings, driving one's plow intentionally off course tothe apparently intentional destruction of yourself, your family's needs, your hope,and not just your physical property. As if to single handedly ruin your field, your
