Notes:

Psalm 115:4-8; Isaiah 44:12-20; 40:21-23 Idolatry

Jesus did not speak much about idolatry because Israel (those whom he taught) no longer were tempted with polytheism. He never taught people to worship him or the holy spirit as Yahweh did.

Matthew 4:10; 22:37; Luke 4:8
Jesus kept and taught others to keep the first two commandments.

Exodus 3:13-15
- Third commandment - Revelation 4:8; Matthew 15:19 & 20

Exodus 20:8-11
Fourth commandment - “Sabbath” literally means “he rested.” “Holy” means sanctified or set apart. Exodus 16:22-26

The point of the Sabbath was to rest and trust that Yahweh would provide as He had done in the wilderness.

Exodus 31:13, 16 & 17; Deuteronomy 5:15


Matthew 12:11 and 12
It is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.

Matthew 24:20
– There would be no reason for this prayer if the Sabbath had ended.

Mark 2:27
- The changes Jesus made to the old covenant supersede it, but that which he did not change remains the same.

Exodus 20:12
Fifth commandment is the first with promise. Deuteronomy 5:16; Leviticus 20:9; Deuteronomy 21:18-21; 27:16; Proverbs 20:20; 30:17

Matthew 15:4
Jesus condemned the religious people for not honoring their parents. Matt 19:19; Mark 7:10; 10:19; Luke 18:20

Matthew 5:21 and 22; 15:19 and 20
- Jesus increased the sixth commandment.

Matthew 5:27 and 28
Jesus intensified the seventh - do not commit adultery.

Matthew 15:19 and 20, 19:18
Stealing and false witness are still sin.

Deuteronomy 19:16-19; Proverbs 6:16-19; 19:5 & 9
No false witness

Matthew 6:25; Mark 7:22 and 23
- Jesus brought us to a higher level of understanding regarding all of the commandments and certainly not a lesser one.
