Matthew 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
I’ve heard people say that it’s the thought or intent of God’s Word that really matters and not the actual words. The jot and tittle are the smallest part of the Hebrew written word – not the spoken word. Jesus tells us in this passage that the even the smallest part of the written word will not pass away. Jesus puts emphasis on the written word and not just the thought or intent behind the word.
