At-a-glance …

Everything works by laws.

Jesus created all things. Jesus was the giver of all law

But people have freewill

We have chosen to rebel against those laws

Jesus who is God wants us to know the blessings of living within His laws.

Truth for Today Bible Study Module 13

Command/commandment—an order, a bidding, something commanded by one in authority.

Covenant—an agreement between two parties. In the Bible it is something that we choose to become part of, to obey, and God in turn pours upon us His blessings and also the help needed to keep our part of the covenant. It is an everlasting covenant based on the moral law.

Moral law—laws that are concerned with right and wrong, the Ten Commandments.

Sermon on the Mount—the preaching of Jesus as recorded in Matthew 5-7.

Mount Sinai—Where Moses received of God the Ten Commandments written on two tablets of stone.

Sanctuary—A special holy tent, later superseded by the temple

Q4 What authority did Jesus have for expounding on the Ten Commandments.

Thou camest down upon Mount Sinai and speakest with them from heaven, and gavest them right judgements and true laws, good statutes and commandments.  Nehemiah 9:13

Q5 How do we know it was Jesus who came down on Mount Sinai?

Thou even thou art Lord alone. Thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all. Nehemiah 9:6
