Ten Commandments in Christianity - 5th

** 5th Commandment:

DISOBEDIENCE TO PARENTS FORBIDDEN



- Stated in the Law of Moses: EXO 20: 12 "Honor thy mother and thy father, that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee."
  • Penalty for Violating: DEATH: EXO 1: 15-17


~ Restated or clarified by Jesus Christ: Mark 7: 9 - 13 (and Matt 15: 4 - 6)

"And He said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.

But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban (that is to say, a gift), by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free (of his obligations and duties to his parents). And ye suffer him no more to do anything for his father or his mother; making the word of God of none effect through your tradition ..."

~ Restated in NEW Testament: EPH 6: 1
