The Christian Influence on Laws - The 10 Commandments

The 10 Commandments were summed up in the New Testament at Matthew 22, when Jesus was confronted by the religious "experts" of the day:

"Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbour as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments" (Matthew 22:36-40).

The Christian Influence on Laws - Sermon on the Mount

The major teaching event in the ministry of Jesus was the Sermon on the Mount. According to the scriptures, this was the largest gathering that Jesus addressed during His ministry. Given this opportunity, He did not bring people out of the audience and cure their illnesses; He did not ask for donations; He did not ask the people to worship Him; He did not say that He was going to die for their sins. What He did do, was to teach the following lesson:

Matt 5:4

Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted.

Matt 5:5

Blessed are the meek, For they shall inherit the earth.

Matt 5:6

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled.

Matt 5:7

Blessed are the merciful, For they shall obtain mercy.

Matt 5:8

Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God.

Matt 5:9

Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God.

Matt 5:10

Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
