Did Jesus Teach the Law? or is it Done With?

This week will be taking a look at Natural Law throughout the Bible. Something I believe the American Evangelical Church has simply lost in the 20th & 21st century. Today let’s take a look at Jesus Christ own words from the Gospels.

Exodus 20:3 You shall have no other gods before me.

Matthew 4:10 It is written: “Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.”

Exodus 20:4-6 You shall not make for yourself an idol.

John 4:24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.

Exodus 20:7 You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God.

Matthew 5:34-37 “Do not swear at all: either by heaven, for it is God’s throne; or by the earth, for it is his footstool. . . . Let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes’, and your ‘No,’ ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.”

Exodus 20:9-11 Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy…

Mark 2:27-28 The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. So the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath.

Exodus 20:12 Honor your father and your mother.

Matthew 5:4 For God said, “Anyone who curses his father or mother must be put to death.”

Exodus 20:13 You shall not murder.

Matthew 5:44-45 Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven.

Exodus 20:14 You shall not commit adultery.

Matthew 5:28 Anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

Exodus 20:15 You shall not steal.

Matthew 15-19 For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery . . . theft . . . . These are what make a man “unclean.”

Exodus 20:16 You shall not give false testimony.

Matthew 12:34 For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks. . . . For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.

Exodus 20:17 You shall not covet.

Luke 12:15: Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.
