Even in matthew Jesus says The earth and the heaven will pass but not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass (paraphrase)

comment How does Jesus describe God in the Gospels
no offense but that is kind of silly. "I desire mercy instead of sacrafice", "I desire obedience instead of sacrafice". There are plenty more specific attributes about who God is. This question had to do with Jesus but the foundation of all that Jesus taught was from the Hebrew Bible, not from some "new way." Nothing found in the Christian canon can be said to be completely new other than some insights into prophecy and a more complete view of the 3 in 1 God (by more complete i still mean extremely lacking)

comment what differentiates virtuous faith from the faith of extremists
@user4813 Be careful about using the world fundamentalist christian for what you are doing is specifying a term for people, who under the banner of christian flag, have done really horrible things. YET, nothing of what they do is fundamental to the bible or what Christ taught. Jesus was a fundamentalist, Westboro baptist church are not fundamentalist, for they do not act like Jesus.
