The Ten Commandments
in the New Testament

   Many "New Testament" churches teach that God's Law is "done away," "nailed to the cross" or otherwise for all practical purposes, ignored. Many churches teach that the Apostle Paul confirmed the putting away of the Law.

   Nevertheless, all of The Ten Commandments can be found in the New Testament in both the Gospels and in the writings of Paul. The charts below compares the Law of God in the Old and New Testaments. Before comparing these charts, let's compare Paul and Jesus. Below we have reproduced Romans 13:9-10 and Matthew 19:18-19.


  1. Matthew 19:16-19 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?
  2. 17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? [there is] none good but one, [that is], God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.
  3. 18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,
  4. 19 Honour thy father and [thy] mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Paul (30 years later)

  1. Romans 13:8-10 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
  2. 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 neighbour as thyself.
  3. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love [is] the fulfilling of the law.



   Notice that Romans 13:9-10 is almost an exact quote of Jesus' words spoken 30 years earlier. Words below spoken after the Crucifixion are in blue.

    If Jesus Christ "nailed the Law to the cross" or "put it away" 30 years earlier, then Paul certainly would have known about it, wouldn't he? 

The Law Of God
Old Testament

The Law Of God
New Testament

Deuteronomy 5:6-21 I [am] the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.

ONE: Thou shalt have none other gods before me.

ONE: Matthew 4:10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written,

 Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

TWO: Thou shalt not make thee [any] graven image, or any likeness of any thing that [is] in heaven above, or that [is] in the earth beneath, or that [is] in the waters beneath the earth:

Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me,

And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.

TWO: 1 John 5:21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. 

Acts 17:29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device.

NOTE: Verses in Blue are verses written AFTER Christ's death. AFTER the 'nailing of the law to the cross'.

THREE: Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain: for the LORD will not hold [him] guiltless that taketh his name in vain. THREE: 1 Timothy 6:1 ... that the name of God and his doctrine be not blasphemed.
FOUR:  Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee.

Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy work:

But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that [is] within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou.

And remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and that the LORD thy God brought thee out thence through a mighty hand and by a stretched out arm: therefore the LORD thy God commanded thee to keep the sabbath day.

FOUR: Matthew 24:20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

Mark 2:27-28 And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: 28 Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

Hebrews 4:4 For he spake in a certain place of the seventh [day] on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works.

Hebrews 4:9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.

Hebrews 4:10 For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God [did] from his.

FIVE: Honor thy father and thy mother, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee FIVE: Matthew 19:19 Honor thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

Ephesians 6:1-3 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.

SIX: Thou shalt not kill. SIX: Romans 13:9 Thou shalt not kill
SEVEN: Neither shalt thou commit adultery. SEVEN: Romans 13:9 ... Thou shalt not commit adultery.
EIGHT: Neither shalt thou steal. EIGHT: Romans 13:9 ... Thou shalt not steal.
NINE: Neither shalt thou bear false witness against thy neighbour. NINE: Romans 13:9 ... Thou shalt not bear false witness.
TEN:  Neither shalt thou desire thy neighbor's wife, neither shalt thou covet thy neighbor's house, his field, or his manservant, or his maidservant, his ox, or his ass, or any [thing] that [is] thy neighbor's

These words the LORD spake unto all your assembly in the mount out of the midst of the fire, of the cloud, and of the thick darkness, with a great voice: and he added no more. And he wrote them in two tables of stone, and delivered them unto me.

TEN: Romans 13:9 ... 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.


Romans 3:31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law

Revelation 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

Question 24: If a Clergyman tries to persuade you that "the Law is done away in Jesus" or says something like, "well that's Old Testament, that's done away," then he is trying, either knowingly or unknowingly, to get you to receive The Mark of The Beast. Agree or disagree, to reject God's Law is to accept The Mark of The Beast.

  Agree.           Disagree
