About This Project

Did Jesus change the 10 Commandments?
God says do not murder, but what does that really mean?
Are there different kinds of murder?
Is any kind of murder ok with God?
How about adultery, theft, and false witness?
If I keep all the commandments, am I a good person?
If I break one of the commandments do I lose my salvation?

On today’s podcast we’ll answer those questions and more as we dig into Commandments 6 through 9 of the big 10.

We’re also going to cover some of the many stipulations around those commandments because a lot of the laws of the Torah interact and inform each other.
