Not only did our Lord not violate any of the 10 Commandments, He perfectly embodies them.

  1. “Thou shalt have no other Gods before me.” Christ Himself is the only true God (Jn 1:1; Rom. 9:5).

  2. “Thou shalt not make unto the any graven image, or any likeness,” etc. Christ Himself is the very image of God, the exact imprint of His nature (Col. 1:15; Heb. 1:3).

  3. “Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy Go in vain.” The very name of Christ is YHWY Himself, to whom every knee will bow in heaven and on earth (Phil. 2:10; Rev. 5:13, cf. Isa. 45:23-24) and the only name under heaven whereby a man can be saved (Acts 4:12).

  4. “Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy.” Christ is Himself our Sabbath rest (Heb. 3:11; 4:9-11).

  5. “Honor thy father and thy mother,” etc. Christ not only honored His earthly parents (Lk. 2:39-52), but He also perfectly honored His Father in Heaven (Jn. 8:49).

  6. “Thou shalt not kill.” Not only did Christ not kill, He is the giver of life to all (Jn. 1:1-4; 10:10). He has even given His own life to preserve life.

  7. “Thou shalt not commit adultery.” Again, not only did He not commit adultery, but He has taken the most adulterous, bloody, and undeserving Wife, and shed His blood to cleanse Her, giving Her eternal joy and blessedness with Him (Hosea [all]; Eph. 5:25-32).

  8. “Thou shalt not steal.” Christ has taken from no one and needs nothing. On the contrary, He gives freely to all (Isa. 55:1-2; Rev. 21:6).

  9. “Thou shalt not bear false witness.” Simple; Christ is the Truth Himself (Jn. 14:6). Not only that, He judges without partiality and in perfect truth (Jn. 5:30).

  10. “Thou shalt not covet.” Jesus, being offered all the kingdoms of the earth and their glory refuses, because He loves the Lord His God and will worship Him alone (Matt. 4:8-10).
