    [The Old Testament Commandments were not included in this list above, because 
    we are under a New Testament(covenant).  You have probably noticed my use of 
    many Old Testament commandment references.  The Old Testament can still be used, 
    as long as you take into consideration Jesus' Fulfillment of the Law. The New 
    Testament is built on the Old Testament's framework.]  
    
    
    2. The second commandment is:  "Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself"
    (Matthew 22:39.  Other passages ~ OLD TESTAMENT:  Leviticus 19:18; etc.  
    NEW TESTAMENT:  Matthew 5:43-44;  Matthew 19:19;  Mark 12:31;  Mark 12:33; 
    Romans 13:9-10;  Galatians 5:14;  James 2:8; etc.).  [Note: Jesus said that 
    we are to "love one another; as I have loved you"(John 13:34).  This means 
    that we are to love our neighbor as Christ loved us, and ourselves as Christ 
    loved us.  
    
       A. "Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not 
       kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: But I 
       say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause 
       shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his bro-
       ther, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, 
       Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.  Therefore if thou bring thy gift 
       to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against 
       thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be recon-
       ciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift"(Matthew 5:21-24).  The 
       verses mentioned in the last sentence are the fulfillment of the law with 
       respect to the commandment mentioned next.  "Thou shalt not kill"
       (Exodus 20:13.  Other passages ~ OLD TESTAMENT:  Deuteronomy 5:17; etc.  NEW TEST-
       AMENT:  Matthew 19:19;  Mark 10:19;  Luke 18:20;  Romans 13:9;  James 2:11; etc.).  
    
       B. "Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not com-
       mit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to 
       lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart"
        (Matthew 5:27-28).The verses mentioned in the last sentence is the fulfillment of 
       the law with respect to the commandment mentioned next.  "Thou shalt not 
       commit adultery" and is Jesus using the 10th commandment to explain the 
       7th commandment.(Exodus 20:14.  Other passages~ OLD TESTAMENT: 
        Deuteronomy 5:18; etc.  NEW TESTAMENT:  Matthew 5:31-32;  Matthew 19:7-9; 
        Matthew 19:18;  Mark 10:19;  Luke 18:20;  Romans 2:22;  Romans 13:9;  James 2:11; etc.).  
    
       C. "Thou shalt not steal"(Exodus 20:15.  Other passages ~ OLD TESTAMENT: 
        Leviticus 19:11;  Deuteronomy 5:19; etc.  NEW TESTAMENT:  Matthew 19:18; 
        Mark 10:19;  Luke 18:20;  Romans 13:9;  Ephesians 4:28; etc.). 
    
       D. "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour" 
      (Exodus 20:16.  Other passages ~ OLD TESTAMENT:  Deuteronomy 5:20; etc.  NEW TEST-
       AMENT:  Matthew 19:18;  Mark 10:19;  Luke 18:20;  Romans 13:9; etc).  
    
       E. "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy 
       neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor 
       his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's"(Exodus 20:17.  Jesus uses this 
       commandment in (Matthew 5:21-24).  Other passages ~ OLD TESTAMENT: 
       Deuteronomy 5:21; etc.  NEW TESTAMENT: Matthew 5:21-24; Romans 13:8-10; etc.).  
       
       F. "and if there be any other commandment…"(Romans 13:9.  Other passages ~ 
       NEW TESTAMENT:  John 14:15   1 John 5:3   1 John 4:7; etc.).  God 
       lays out many other commandments throughout scripture.  If you become fam-
       iliar with scripture, you will know these other commandments which we are to 
       follow.

    [The Old Testament Commandments were not included in this list above, because 
    we are under a New Testament(covenant).  You have probably noticed my use of 
    many Old Testament commandment references.  The Old Testament can still be used, 
    as long as you take into consideration Jesus' Fulfillment of the Law. The New 
    Testament is built on the Old Testament's framework.]  
    
    
    
    [FUFILLMENTS SHOWN ABOVE] ~ Jesus once stated, "Think not that I am come to 
    destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil" 
    (Matthew 5:17).  Once Jesus came, the Old Testament was fulfilled, and a lot 
    of the commandments of God did not change, but rather were fulfilled.  As some 
    commandments from the Old Testament are types and shadows(as a result were 
    fulfilled), while others were the framework for the very same commandment in 
    the New Testament(did not change).
