Heaven and Earth Pass Away,

Truly I say to you that sooner would heaven and earth pass away than for one smallest letter or one stroke of a letter to pass away from the Law until all things take place.
Jesus made singular use of the expression in his preaching and teaching, using it very often to preface a statement of fact, a promise, or a prophecy, thereby emphasizing the absolute truthfulness and reliability of what he said. (Mt 5:18; ) In these cases the Greek word (a·men′) is translated as “truly” (KJ, “verily”) or, when doubled, as throughout the book of John, “most truly.”  Jesus’ use of “amen” in this way is said to be unique in sacred literature, and it was consistent with his divinely given authority.
