About Truth

Christ will return to Judgement at the end of this age

Who hast commanded all men:
1. “Thou shalt not have strange gods before Me;
2. Thou shalt not take the Name of the Lord thy God in vain;
3. Remember thou keep holy the Sabbath Day;
4. Honor thy Father and thy Mother;
5. Thou shalt not kill;
6. Thou shalt not commit adultery;
7. Thou shalt not steal;
8. Thou shalt not bear false witness;
9. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife;
10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s goods;

3. “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

4. Blessed are the meek, for they shall possess the earth.

5. Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

6. Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for justice, for they shall be satisfied.

7. Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.

8. Blessed are the clean of heart, for they shall see God

9. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God.

10. Blessed are they who suffer persecution for justice’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11. Blessed are you when men reproach you, and persecute you, and, speaking falsely, say all manner of evil against you, for my sake.

12. Rejoice and exult, because your reward is great in heaven; for so did they persecute the prophets who were before you.
"Blessed are you poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.

21. Blessed are you who hunger now, for you shall be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh.

22. Blessed shall you be when men hate you; and when they shut you out and reproach you, and reject your name as evil, because of the Son of Man.

23. Rejoice on that day and exult, for behold your reward is great in heaven. For in the selfsame manner their fathers used to treat the prophets.

24. But woe to you rich! for you are now having your comfort.

25. Woe to you who are filled for you shall hunger.
Woe to you, who laugh now! For you shall mourn and weep.

26. Woe to you when all men speak well of you! In the selfsame manner their fathers used to treat the false prophets!”

The Disciples Compared to Salt and Light

13. "You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its strength, what shall be salted with it? It is no longer of any use but to be thrown out and trodden underfoot by men.

14. "You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden.

15. Neither do men light a lamp and put it under the measure, but upon the lamp-stand, so as to give light to all in the house.

16. Even so let your light shine before men, in order that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.

The Old Law and the New

17. "Do not think that I have come to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I have not come to destroy, but to fulfill.

18. For amen I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, not one jot or one tittle shall be lost from the Law till all things have been accomplished.

19. Therefore whoever does away with one of these least commandments, and so teaches men, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever carries them out and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

20. For I say to you that unless your justice exceeds that of the Scribes and Pharisees, you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven.
"Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart and with thy whole soul with thy whole depth of being and with thy whole strength.

38. This is the greatest and the first commandment.

39. And the second is like it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

40. On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets.
I say it now.

34. A new commandment I give you, that you love one another: that as I have loved you, you also love one another.

35. By this will all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.
Forgive us our sins as we also do forgive those who trespass against us"
Blessed art Thou, O Lord, teach us Thy statutes and therefore remember us when Thou comest in Thy Kingdom
Blessed art Thou, O Lord, grant us understanding of Thy statutes and therefore remember us when Thou comest in Thy Kingdom
Blessed art Thou, O Lord, enlighten us by Thy statutes and by our obedience of them therefore remember us when Thou comest in Thy Kingdom
