The Ten Commandments

(Exodus 20:2-17)

 

 

Prologue: I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage

1. You shall have no other gods before Me.

May the LORD our God be with us, that He may incline our hearts to Himself (I Kings 8:58, 59).

2. You shall not make for yourself an idol.

I will set no worthless things before my eyes. (Psalm 101:3)

3. You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.

The Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain (Exodus 20:7)

4. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.

For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath (Matt. 12:8).

5. Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God is giving you.

All that the LORD has spoken we will do, and we will be obedient (Exodus 24:7).

6. You shall not murder 20:13.

Love one another, even as I have loved you (John 13:34).

7. You shall not commit adultery.

The fruit of the Spirit is..faithfulness (Gal. 5:22).

8. You shall not steal.

I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. (Phil. 4:11).

9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

Speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ (Eph. 4:15)

10. You shall not covet.

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment, and the second is this: you shall love your neighbor as yourself
(Matt 22:37-39).

The Ten Commandments still apply, because they were ratified by Jesus in Mark
10:19 and Luke 18:20 when He said, "You know the commandments." Ten Commandments Supreme Court
Judge Roy Moore, The Bible speaks of two great Laws. Law Number 1 is the Law of God (“the Ten Commandments,” or “Two tablets of the Testimony,”) also known as the “Moral Law,” the “Law of Love” and the “Decalogue.” Law Number 2 is the “Law of Moses” (the “Book of the Law,” or “Book of the Covenant,”) also known as the “Mosaic Law,” the “Ordinances” and the “Ceremonial Law.” Is there a relationship between the Ten Commandments and the Ceremonial law? Absolutely. If an Israelite sinned, he broke Law Number 1, the Moral Law of the Ten Commandments. He then had to bring his offering according to Law Number 2, the Sacrificial Law to receive forgiveness. This is the relationship between these two laws. Law Number 1 defines sin, as sin is the transgression of the Moral Law, the Ten The Ten Commandments tablets Commandments. 1 John 3:4. Law Number 2 defined sacrifices, the Ceremonial Law which was the remedy for sin.

When the Israelite sinned, he broke the first law. To make atonement for his sin he had to obey the second law. This ceremonial law can easily be identified in the Scriptures. It talks about circumcision (a religious Jewish rite), sacrifices, offerings, purifications, holy days, and other rites associated with the Hebrew sanctuary service. So here are two very distinct laws of which this fact is unmistakable. Jesus Christ our true Passover Lamb permanently took the place of Law Number 2 when He cried out “It is finished” and bowed His head and died that Friday afternoon. See also Wednesday Crucifixion. When that unseen hand tore the temple curtain from top to bottom, this signified that the Ceremonial law that pointed the people to His sacrificial death was once and for all nailed to the cross. Note how Hebrews 9:1 below explains that the first covenant had also the ordinances of this ceremonial sanctuary system, but are gone in the New Covenant now leaving only the Ten Commandments which God writes in our hearts and minds. See also Hebrews 8:10
Ten Commandments

God wants us to keep the Ten Commandments because He loves us and wants us to live happy lives. (Proverbs 29:18)
A study of the Ten Commandments will teach us HOW to love God and our neighbor (mankind). (Romans 7:7)
You see, the Ten Commandments are like a mirror. They show us how bad we are and how we need to be clean before the Day of Judgment. That is the Day God will punish people who have broken the Ten Commandments. They will be sent to a place called “Hell” which is a place where God doesn't want people to go. God doesn't want you to be punished. He so loves you that He made a way for you to be clean before Judgment Day.

Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament

Without encumbering his work with philological technicalities and extra-biblical references, Mr. Vine puts at the disposal of the English reader the labors of a lifetime bestowed devoutly upon the New Testament.

First, Vine's Expository Dictionary shows how rich is the language of the New Testament in words which present shades of the meaning of some common idea. A good illustration of this is found on pages 203-207, under COME, and its related thoughts (e.g., APPEAR, pp. 64-67). Here, including the compounds, upwards of fifty words are employed to express one general thought, and the employment of any one of these, in any given passage, has precise historical or spiritual significance. If this root idea is followed out, for example, in its bearing on Christ's Second Advent, it is profoundly important to apprehend the significance respectively of erchontai, heko, phaino, epiphaino, parousia, apokalupsis, and epiphaneia.

Second, the Vine's Expository Dictionary indicates the doctrinal bearing which the use of chosen words has. A case in point will be found on page 60, under ANOTHER. The use of allos and heteros in the New Testament should be carefully examined, for "another numerically" must not be confounded with "another generically." Mr. Vine points this out in John 14:16. When Christ said, "I will make request of the Father, and He shall give you another Helper (allon Parakleton)," He made a tremendous claim both for Himself and for the Spirit, for allos here implies the personality of the Spirit, and the equality of both Jesus and the Spirit with the Father. See also Mr. Vine's reference to the use of these words in Galatians 1:6,7. For an illustration of how one word can have a variety of meanings see pages 270-271, under DAY. Unless such expressions as "man's day", "day of the Lord", and "day of Christ", are distinguished, one cannot understand the dispensation teaching of the New Testament. In this connection, the R.V. must be followed in 2 Thess 2:2.

New Testament Commandments bring you these Bible verses:

Esther 9:21-24

21 to establish among them that they should celebrate yearly the fourteenth and fifteenth days of the month of Adar, 
22 as the days on which the Jews had rest from their enemies, as the month which was turned from sorrow to joy for them, and from mourning to a holiday; that they should make them days of feasting and joy, of sending presents to one another and gifts to the poor. 
23
 So the Jews accepted the custom which they had begun, as Mordecai had written to them, 
24 because Haman, the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, the enemy of all the Jews, had plotted against the Jews to annihilate them, and had cast Pur (that is, the lot), to consume them and destroy them;
