Author: Evangelist Ted R. Weiland
The Fifth Commandment is cited twice in the Old Testament (Exodus 20:12 and Deuteronomy 5:16) and six times in the New Testament (Matthew 15:4 19:19 Mark 7:10 10:19 Luke 18:20 and Ephesians 6:2).
The first four commandments addressing man's relationship with Yahweh hang upon "Thou shalt love Yahweh thy God with all thy heart with all thy soul and with all thy mind." The last six commandments addressing man's relationship with his fellow man hang upon "Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thy self." The two stone tablets given to Moses on Mt. Sinai are usually depicted with five commandments on each tablet. Evidence indicates however that the Fifth Commandment not the Sixth headlined the second tablet. Yahshua associated the Fifth Commandment with the second greatest commandment:
...Yahshua [Jesus] said Thou shalt do no murder thou shalt not commit adultery thou shalt not steal thou shalt not bear false witness honor thy father and thy mother: and thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. (Matthew 19: 18-19).
