The Ten CommandmentsOut of curiosity, the Psalm11918.org team decided to create a list of the commandments that were given in the "New Testament" (or as we at Psalm11918.org refer to it, the Greek Scriptures). We started out with the specific goal of only identifying the Ten Commandments but expanded the scope to include any commandments. This particular article is focused on identifying the 10 Commandments that are reiterated and affirmed in the Greek Scriptures.

Although we normally use the NASB for our articles, we have used a revised KJV (e.g. replacing "thee" with "you" and "thine" with "yours") to comply with the publisher's copyright requirements.
