His View Goes Much Deeper

In Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, he radically amplifies this definition of righteousness.  He insists that righteousness is not simply a matter of what we do or don’t do but rather a question of why we do or don’t do it.  His view of righteousness goes deeper than behavior and outward action.  It always looks into a person, at the motivation of the act.
