The Commandments Of Jesus

1. "FORGIVE EVERYBODY OF ALL THEIR OFFENSES AGAINST YOU."

(Forgive, and be forgiven.)

As you forgive other people, God will forgive you.
"And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors."
(Matthew 6:12 KJV)

"And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which
in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. But if ye do not forgive, neither will your. Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses."
(Mark 11:25-26 KJV)

2. "YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN."

Being "born again" means casting off the spirit of the flesh and taking on the Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit, Who is given by the grace of God to those who believe in Jesus Christ as the only-begotten Son of God, risen from the dead.
"Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again."
(John 3:7 KJV)

3. "ABIDE IN ME, AND LET ME ABIDE IN YOU."

When you accept Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour, His Holy Spirit moves into your heart. He actually lives in you, and you live in Him."Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me." (John 15:4 KJV)

4. "LET PEOPLE SEE YOUR GOOD WORKS."

(Do not hide your light under a basket.)
"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."
(Matthew 5:16 KJV; see also Matthew 5:15)

5. "END DISPUTES QUICKLY."

"Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison."
(Matthew 5:25 KJV)

6. "WHATEVER CAUSES YOU TO SIN, GET RID OF IT."

"And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
"And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that
one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell."
(Matthew 5:29-30 KJV)

7. "DO NOT SWEAR OATHS AT ALL."

"But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne:
"Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.
"Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.
"But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil."
(Matthew 5:34-37 KJV)

8. "DO NOT RETURN OFFENSE FOR OFFENSE."
(Turn the other cheek.)

"Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
"But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also."
(Matthew 5:38-39 KJV)

9. "GIVE WHAT PEOPLE ASK OF YOU, AND GIVE MORE THAN IS REQUIRED."
(Go the extra mile.)

"And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also. "And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.
"Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away."
(Matthew 5:40-42 KJV)

10. "LOVE YOUR ENEMIES AND THOSE WHO WORK AGAINST YOU."

"But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
"That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust."
(Matthew 5:43-45 KJV)

11. "GIVE TO THE POOR TO PLEASE GOD, NOT TO GAIN APPROVAL
FROM OTHER PEOPLE."

"Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven."
(Matthew 6:1 KJV)

The Golden Rule - Summary of the Commandments

THE GOLDEN RULE

"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

"Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets."
(Matthew 7:12 KJV)

Using Strong's Concordance

Are you a new Bible study student? Then it probably has not taken you too long to figure out you may need a concordance. The most popular and complete concordance available is the Strong's. That's not an opinion, it's just fact. The Strong's Concordance however can be a useless study aid if you don't know how to use it. We'll give you a clear overview of how to use this study guide. Including using the Hebrew and Greek dictionaries that are found in the back of the book. Here's how to use a Strong's Concordance. For 100 years, when someone wanted to find a verse in the Bible, the fastest way to do it was with a Strong's Concordance. Since 1890, when it was published by James Strong after being compiled by over 100 workers who diligently listed every occurrence of every word in the KJV, it has been The Strong's Concordance. No printed Bible study library was ever complete without a Strong's. It's all about translation! The original writers of the ancient text often spoke and wrote in these two main languages of the writers of the time. Hebrew was the obviously language of choice for the children of Israel. Greek was the language used by most of the known world at time. Later this honor would pass to Latin, the language of Rome.

What are Strong's Numbers?

In Strong's Concordance, each root word in the original language (Hebrew or Greek) was assigned a number. Next to each listing of an English word and it's location in the Bible, the Strong's Number was also listed, showing the reader the Hebrew or Greek word from which the English was translated, using the KJV King James Version.

What is Strong's Lexicon?

The Strong's Concordance included two dictionaries, called lexicons, which were indexed by these Strong's Numbers: A Concise Dictionary of the Words on the Hebrew Bible, and A Concise Dictionary of the Words in the Greek Testament. Strong's Concordance

Jesus Commandments bring you these weekly Bible verses:

Esther 9:13-16

13 Then Esther said, “If it pleases the king, let it be granted to the Jews who are in Shushan to do again tomorrow according to today’s decree, and let Haman’s ten sons be hanged on the gallows.”
14 So the king commanded this to be done; the decree was issued in Shushan, and they hanged Haman’s ten sons.
15 And the Jews who were in Shushan gathered together again on the fourteenth day of the month of Adar and killed three hundred men at Shushan; but they did not lay a hand on the plunder.
16 The remainder of the Jews in the king’s provinces gathered together and protected their lives, had rest from their enemies, and killed seventy-five thousand of their enemies; but they did not lay a hand on the plunder. 

12. "PRAY PRIVATELY AND SIMPLY, NOT TO IMPRESS OTHER PEOPLE."

"And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are:
for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. "But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret;
and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly."But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking."
(Matthew 6:5-7 KJV)

13. "MAKE YOUR PRAYERS BE LIKE THE LORD'S PRAYER."

After this manner therefore pray ye:
Our Father which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done in earth,
As it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom,
And the power,
And the glory,
For ever.
Amen.
(Matthew 6:9-15 KJV)

After Moses was given the Ten Commandments in Deuteronomy 5, in Deuteronomy 6 verse 7 Moses said: "And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up." They have been a popular teaching item for Sunday School and vacation Bible school.

14. "WHEN YOU FAST, DO IT SECRETLY, NOT FOR SHOW."

"Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward."
(Matthew 6:16)

15. "STORE UP YOUR TREASURES IN HEAVEN, NOT ON EARTH."

"Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
"But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither
moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break
through nor steal:
"For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."
(Matthew 6:19-21)

16. "DO NOT WORRY ABOUT YOUR MATERIAL NEEDS."

"Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the
body than raiment?

"Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?"
(Matthew 6:25-26 KJV)

17. "DO NOT WORRY ABOUT THE FUTURE."

"Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof."
(Matthew 6:34 KJV)

ALL YOUR NEEDS."

"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be
added unto you."
(Matthew 6:33 KJV)

19. "DO NOT JUDGE OTHER PEOPLE."
(Judge not, lest ye be judged.)

"Judge not, that ye be not judged. "For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again."
(Matthew 7:1-2 KJV)

So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first.
