Jesus Said Do Not Covet (10th Commandment)

Jesus Said & The 10 Commandments|2 Comments|

Did you know that Jesus mentioned the 10th Commandment only once?  And when He did, He used the word ‘envy’ instead of the word ‘covet’?    Before starting The Jesus Said Project, I did not know this interesting trivia fact.

Referenced Scriptures:
Mark 7:14-23

10th Commandment:  Do Not Covet
In Exodus 20:1, “…God spoke […]

Jesus Said Do Not Lie (9th Commandment)

Jesus Said & The 10 Commandments|0 Comments|

Interesting point:  Jesus elaborated on most of the 10 Commandments, but not the 9th Commandment.  It makes me wonder, “Why?”.  Although this question cannot be answered in The Jesus Said Project, we can study what Jesus said and know with certainty that Jesus taught and upheld the 9th Commandment, […]

Jesus Said Do Not Murder (6th Commandment)

Jesus Said & The 10 Commandments|0 Comments|

At just four words, the 6th Commandment is one of the shortest in length (the other one is the 8th Commandment). Short and sweet, like much of what Jesus said.

Jesus Said Honor Your Father and Mother (5th Commandment)

Jesus Said & The 10 Commandments|0 Comments|

The 5th Commandment was repeated frequently by Jesus when He was teaching on earth.  If you had good parents, it is easy to understand and agree with this teaching.  However, what if your parents were less than perfect, or even abusive?  Does the teaching still hold true?

Referenced Scriptures:
Matthew 15:3-9, […]

Jesus Said Love Your Neighbor as Yourself

Jesus Said & The 10 Commandments|2 Comments|

Jesus said that the second greatest commandment is to love your neighbor as yourself.  He said this in Matthew 22:36-40 when a religious leader asked Him which is the greatest commandment in the Law.  Jesus said the first and greatest commandment was to love God.  The very next thing […]

Jesus Said Don’t Have Idols (2nd Commandment) // Part II

Jesus Said & The 10 Commandments|0 Comments|

Is Jesus’ teaching on the 2nd Commandment relevant in today’s world?  When studying what Jesus said about the 2nd Commandment, He did not say anything specifically about graven images.  His teachings focused more on the idol of money because apparently it was a problem in His day.  Things haven’t […]

Jesus Said Don’t Have Idols (2nd Commandment) // Part I

Jesus Said & The 10 Commandments|2 Comments|

The 2nd Commandment is that we must not have idols.  If you look up the word ‘idol’ in the dictionary, it refers to many things:  images of a deity used as an object of worship, an image, icon, effigy, symbol, fetish, or totem.  This might lead you to believe […]

Jesus Said He is King (1st Commandment)

Jesus Said & The 10 Commandments|0 Comments|

We wrap up these studies on the 1st Commandment by looking at scripture where Jesus said He is King.  Up to that point, Jesus had used parables to allude to his status as King, but He had told no one who He really was except His disciples.  Now, near […]

Jesus Said You Have One Master (1st Commandment)

Jesus Said & The 10 Commandments|0 Comments|

Why do we call people on earth ‘father’ when Jesus said not to?  (Of course, this does not include our biological father because God said, “Honor your father and your mother…” when He gave us the 5th Commandment in Exodus 20:12.)  What about religious tradition that uses the title […]
