Mark 15:37, 38 ——- What happened when Jesus died on the cross?

Matthew 22:37-40 ——— Does love make the commandments void?

NOTE: Jesus is quoting the Old Testament (Deuteronomy 6:5 and

Leviticus 19:18) in this passage. He is not giving a new law, but says

simply, if we love God supremely, we will not transgress the first four

commandments by worshiping false gods, bowing down to images,

taking his name in vain, or desecrating his holy Sabbath (Exodus

20:3-11). If we love our fellow man as ourselves, we will not

transgress the last six by dishonoring our parents, killing, stealing,

committing adultery, lying, or coveting what belongs to another

(Exodus 20:12-17). This is why Jesus says upon these two “hang all

the law” (Matthew 22:40).

Romans 13:8-10 —– What is the relationship between law and love?

NOTE: The first four commandments pertain to our relationship with

God and the last six to our relationship with our fellow man. Imagine

what it would be like if the commandments were gone. There would

be nothing wrong with lying, stealing, adultery, killing, idolatry, etc.


Regardless of what some say, it is still a sin to break any one of the

commandments of God.

Galatians 3:11 ————- Does keeping God’s law earn us salvation?

against His law.

Romans 3:31 —– Does faith mean we must no longer obey God’s law?

Romans 6:14, 15 ———- Does being under grace make us free to sin?

NOTE: Repeatedly, Paul emphasizes that grace makes us law keepers,

not law breakers (Romans 3:31; 6:1, 2, 14, 15; 7:7). Grace always

leads to obedience, never to disobedience.

Romans 8:3, 4 — Has the law been kept “for us” or is it to be “in us”?

Galatians 6:6 ———————————– What does true faith do?

James 2:14-20, 26 ————————— How important are works?

NOTE: Our works are only the evidence of our faith. The things we

do are simply the reflection of what we believe. If our faith does not

show obedience to God, it is evidence of being destitute of the grace of

God, something to be compared to the belief of Satan and his

rebellious angels.

James 2:10, 11 —– What if someone breaks only one commandment?

NOTE: If a person is going to break one of the commandments, he

might as well break them all, for the wages of sin is death, whether we

break one or all of them.

James 2:12 ———- Though saved by grace, by what are we judged?

1 John 5:3 ————— What is the evidence that we truly love God?

Revelation 22:14 — Where will the commandment keepers be found?

John 14:15 ———- If you love God, how does He want you to show it?

  1. Hi,
    I’m curious if you are a seventh day Adventist or another sabbath keeper. I have looked at your studies which someone sent me and I have appreciated it very much. It helped me in finding a few texts that I wanted to know.

      1. Hi.
        Thanks for your reply.
        We’ve just had 2 bible workers here. Was great.
        I’ve just put together a memory box. I’ve typed out pocket size cards with things Ellen says to memorize, study or read well. I’ve made it so people can print them off but haven’t uploaded anything yet as I’m quite ignorant on how to do it and also its in an old version of publisher. I feel time is short and many knowing the truth need to be encouraged and fortified with scripture. I am not selling it. It’s just to help people. I thought I’d use your questions and texts from your first few studies if you don’t mind. If you send me your email address or better still just add me on fb as a friend I’ll show you a pic of my box and cards. I’ve been making mini kits to send to Vanuatu friends who would not have access to printers etc.
        Fb name is Celia Bethney. ( long story lol)
