"The Law and the Prophets were proclaimed until John. Since that time, the good news of the kingdom of God is being preached, and everyone is forcing their way into it.
King James Bible
The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.
American Standard Version
The law and the prophets were until John: from that time the gospel of the kingdom of God is preached, and every man entereth violently into it.
Young's Literal Translation
the law and the prophets are till John; since then the reign of God is proclaimed good news, and every one doth press into it;
Luke 16:16 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The law and the prophets were until John - The law and the prophets continued to be the sole teachers till John came, who first began to proclaim the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: and now, he who wishes to be made a partaker of the blessings of that kingdom must rush speedily into it; as there will be but a short time before an utter destruction shall fall upon this ungodly race. They who wish to be saved must imitate those who take a city by storm - rush into it, without delay, as the Romans are about to do into Jerusalem. See also on Matthew 11:12 (note).
