    Are there any commandments in the new testament? If so, what are they?

    Do new testament commands include old testament commands? What are the commands that we find in the new testament?
    Bereishit - Genesis - Chapter 1

    1 In the beginning of God's creation of the heavens and the earth.
    :א בְּרֵאשִׁ֖ית בָּרָ֣א אֱלֹהִ֑ים אֵ֥ת הַשָּׁמַ֖יִם וְאֵ֥ת הָאָֽרֶץ

    in beginning he created gods the heavens and the earth

    Yes. Just one (4 in 1) off the top of my head.

    Acts 15:28, 29: For the holy spirit and we ourselves have favored adding no further burden to you except these necessary things: 29 to keep abstaining from things sacrificed to idols, from blood, from what is strangled, and from sexual immorality. If you carefully keep yourselves from these things, you will prosper. Good health to you!”

    These are very good, thank you.

    Ummmm...so we dont have to recognize He is One and there is no other...

    We can make images and them into idols?
    We can carry His name for nothing...in vain
    We can dishonor our elders?
    We can steal?
    We can murder?
    We can lie (obviously you think so)
    We can covet?

    The reason this council was held was that so many goyim were crowding the synagogues on the Sabbath that certain jews came to make the requirements for fellowship so hard the goyim would say “cut myself?...NO WAY” and leave...

    but after determining that this “circumcision or else” was not even required in the OT of goyim living with them...only 4 things were recalled which were required of goyim “within their gates” (specifically written in the Sabbath command remember?)

    and James concludes this Jerusalem Council expecting that the crowding goyim will continue hearing Moses continue to be preached and read in every city on every Sabbath...so Sabbath remains as well...

    3 of the 4 dealt with dietary prohibitions...kosher laws...or do you suppose that swine was made ok to eat as long as it was not offered to idols first, or strangled, or full of blood...

    But you claim only 4 things? So much for loving others exactly as He loved you...

    Commandments in the NT are indicated by the imperative mood.

    One major passage that is a commandment is I Corinthians 14:1-36

    We know this because of what verse 37 states

    "37 If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord."

    verses 1-36 are the commandments of the Lord and should thus be obeyed including 5a, I would that ye all speak with tongues.."
    "And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship and in breaking of bread and in prayers." Acts 2:42

    "Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind" Philippians 2:2

    Pro scripture = Protestant

    Interesting. Read what it says and don't read into it.

    Jesus mentioned only six of the 10 commandments.

    These are the same commandments any of the world’s relgions would believe in:

    You shall do no murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not bear false witness, honor your father and your mother and you shall love your neighbor as yourself....

    Five of these are of the Ten Commandments.

    Yes. One of them is:

    "Thou shalt not post stupid threads, about every subject under the sun."

    Many books have been written, but there is nothing new under the sun.

    Careful readers of the Bible know that the text mentions three different versions of the 10 Commandments.

    Tongues is good even more so prophecy but what is true is that all of those born of the Spirit have at least one gift of the Spirit. Or we grow into one that can be identified.

    Put “Three different versions of the 10 Commandments” in Google’s search window.
