Ten Commandments in Christianity - INTRO

Some think or believe that these Divine edicts were done away with via Christianity. This is false. In Christian Scriptures, these Commandments are restated in the gospels by Jesus Christ and in the epistles by His Apostles.

This is a somewhat complicated study which hopefully is presented in a simplified, easy-to-read and understand format. Blessings!

Scriptural references for the Ten Commandments are found in the Jewish scriptures: Exodus 20: 1 -17 and also Deuteronomy 5: 1 - 21.

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS Summarily Restated by Jesus Christ as the 1st and 2nd Greatest Commandments:

MATT 22: 36 - 40 * * * * *
  • 36) Master, which is the great commandment in the law?37) Jesus said unto him, THOU SHALT LOVE THE LORD THY GOD WITH ALL THY HEART, AND WITH ALL THY, AND WITH ALL THY SOUL, AND WITH ALL THY MIND.
  • 38) This is the first and great commandment.
  • 39) And the second is like unto it, THOU SHALT LOVE THY NEIGHBOR AS THYSELF.
  • 40) On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.


THE 2nd COMMANDMENT Also Summarily Restated by Apostle Paul:
ROM 13: 8 - 10 * * * * *

  • 8) Owe no man any thing but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
  • 9) For this, THOU SHALT NOT COMMIT ADULTERY, THOU SHALT NOT KILL, THOU SHALT NOT STEAL, THOU SHALT NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS, THOU SHALT NOT COVET; and if there be any other commandment , it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, THOU SHALT LOVE THY NEIGHBOR AS THYSELF.
  • 10) Love worketh no ill to his neighbor: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.


JESUS DID NOT COME TO DESTROY THE LAW OF MOSES:

MATT 5: 17 - 18 * * * * *
  • 17) Think not that I am come to destroy the law and the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.
  • 18) For verily I say unto you, Til heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, til all be fulfilled.
MATT 16: 16 - 17 * * * * *
  • 16) The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of heaven and preached, and every man presseth into it.
  • 17) It is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.
