613 Oral Laws

This list of laws is in an easy-to-read format for quick reference and I`m sure I`ll use it several times and share it with others as well. Your website is so useful in my studies. Thank you very much. In Maimonides` list, you will notice significant overlaps of the chosen commandments, perhaps as a result of the gematria/superstition that exactly 613 is to be found in the Torah. Note also that Maimonides seems to regard Christians as „idolaters,” whom he calls „missionaries,” although the texts he uses of the Torah against „missionaries” obviously have no historical connection to Christianity. In addition to each Torah toast reference, I added one or more corresponding New Testament commandments (many more could be cited, but for the sake of brevity, I kept the references to a minimum). Some laws simply do not apply to Christians at all (e.g., temple practice laws, agricultural laws, civil laws, etc.), although the NT clearly contains ALL Torah principles in a higher form (in fact, Yeshua the Mashiach went beyond the Torah letter to lay out its underlying principles. See, for example, Matthew 5–7). 1. Know that there is a God. (Exodus 20:2) 2. Having no other gods.
