How come God gives Moses 10 commandments in Exodus, and then later in the NT Jesus says that there are really only 2 commandments?
Hello brother, and welcome.hiddekel said:Why the need for the 10 back in Moses' time? And, isnt this all sort of contradictory?
Well said Tanya! Christ came to fulfill the Law for us because we as humans always fall short. We miss the target. So with these two commandments Christ fulfilled the Law for us. We have now to only believe and follow Him with all love.Princess487 said:Jesus said, I didn't come to change the law, i came to fullfill it. Jesus fulfilled it. there's no way that we as humans could have done it. We could only fullfill it with Jesus. without Jesus, who is in us, we cant do anything. So Jesus said I have fullfilled it, and since we are in Him and He is in us, we have also fullfilled it in Him. Now, as the above have mentioned, love is the biggest thing, and who was it that said that if you have love, everything else you have fullfilled. and that's right. God is love and love is the most important thing. well i hope this kind of helped out...i just got to blabbing but God bless you, hope you get something out of it. blessings, ur sis, Tanya
