Parallels between Sermons on the Mount and The Ten Commandments

Wednesday, June 13, 2018

Jesus said,"I didn't come to destroy the law of the prophets, I came to fulfill them."

This is the central statement of what we call the Sermon on the Mount. The sermons on the Mount improve upon what Moses taught us in ten statements on Mount Sinai.

Where Moses began by giving us the Ten Commandments, Jesus improves with the Beatitudes. Whereas Moses said we should not kill, Jesus said we should not be angry. Whereas Moses said you shall not commit adultery, Jesus said we should not lust after each other.
