Jesus told a man to keep the commandments to which the man promptly replied with a query, which? Clearly Jesus believed that theyâ€™re to be only five commandments worthy of following from the old set of ten.
And I tend to agree, as those are good rules for all to follow, not killing, not committing adultery, not stealing, not lying and honoring parents are good rules.
So there is only seven commandments by Jesus and of those, two are by Jesus while the rest are by god but the laws of Jesus are, at least according to the man himself, the two most important laws of all.
Noticeable difference being between the two sets of commandments that all the strict laws of god reverence are gone and replaced with voluntary desire to love god.
“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven.” -Matthew -45 “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you.” -Matthew “Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, honor your father and mother, and love your neighbor as yourself.” -Matthew Now the last one is other part of my reasoning for the number of commandments for Christians.
It seems that Jesus followed only half of the commandments given by god, but such is the way with life, sons tend to want to improve upon the works of their fathers.

The one rule Jesus seemed to be quite insistent on, love your neighbor, is always a good one to follow.
He was actually so insistent on that command that he even wanted Christians to love their enemies and pray for them.
Honor your father and mother Today, a Christian, specifically a follower of Christ, confronted me as he quite often used that particular expression.
Now to me a follower of Christ is one who follows the New Testament.
’ Jesus replied: ‘”Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” This is the first and greatest commandment.
