There are lists of the twelve disciples in Matthew, Mark and Luke, although some of them are mentioned earlier. John implies that some of them were originally disciples of John the Baptist. John does not have a list, but mentions the names above in various places, and talks of 'the Twelve'. John also describes "the disciple whom Jesus loved", who is also described as "the disciple which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true." So many people assume that this disciple is John (who wrote that gospel), although his name is not given in the gospel itself. It is also not known whether this John is the son of Zebedee. John also mentioned a "disciple was known unto the high priest" without given a name. Joseph of Arimathaea is described as a disciple of Jesus, or as "waited for the kingdom of God", but he does not seem to be one of the Twelve. Jesus gives instructions to the Twelve, and Luke mentions a later group of seventy, as well as later instructions.

Luke mentions the women who followed Jesus, and all talk of the women watching the crucifixion, who found the tomb empty.

The Ten Commandments

Old Testament

New Testament

Deuteronomy 5.1 And Moses called all Israel, and said unto them, Hear, O Israel, the statutes and judgments which I speak in your ears this day, that ye may learn them, and keep, and do them. 5.2 The LORD our God made a covenant with us in Horeb. 5.3 The LORD made not this covenant with our fathers, but with us, even us, who are all of us here alive this day. 5.4 The LORD talked with you face to face in the mount out of the midst of the fire, 5.5 (I stood between the LORD and you at that time, to shew you the work of the LORD: for ye were afraid by reason of the fire, and went not up into the mount;) saying, Matthew 5.17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 5.18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 5.19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 5.20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Deuteronomy 5.6 I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. 5.7 Thou shalt have none other gods before me. Matthew 22.37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 22.38 This is the first and great commandment.
Deuteronomy 5.8 Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth: 5.9 Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me, 5.10 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.
Deuteronomy 5.11 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain: for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. Matthew 5.33 Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths: 5.34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne: 5.35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. 5.36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black. 5.37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.
Deuteronomy 5.12 Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee. 5.13 Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy work: 5.14 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou. 5.15 And remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and that the LORD thy God brought thee out thence through a mighty hand and by a stretched out arm: therefore the LORD thy God commanded thee to keep the sabbath day. Mark 2.23 And it came to pass, that he [Jesus] went through the corn fields on the sabbath day; and his disciples began, as they went, to pluck the ears of corn. 2.24 And the Pharisees said unto him, Behold, why do they on the sabbath day that which is not lawful? 2.25 And he said unto them, Have ye never read what David did, when he had need, and was an hungred, he, and they that were with him? 2.26 How he went into the house of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest, and did eat the shewbread, which is not lawful to eat but for the priests, and gave also to them which were with him? 2.27 And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: 2.28 Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.
Matthew 12.9 And when he was departed thence, he went into their synagogue: 12.10 And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him. 12.11 And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out? 12.12 How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days. 12.13 Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other.
Deuteronomy 5.16 Honour thy father and thy mother, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. Mark 3.31 There came then his brethren and his mother, and, standing without, sent unto him, calling him. 3.32 And the multitude sat about him, and they said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee. 3.33 And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren? 3.34 And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! 3.35 For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.
John 19.25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. 19.26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! 19.27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.
Deuteronomy 5.17 Thou shalt not kill. 5.21 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: 5.22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. 5.23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; 5.24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. 5.25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison. 5.26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.
Deuteronomy 5.18 Neither shalt thou commit adultery. 5.27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: 5.28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
Deuteronomy 5.19 Neither shalt thou steal. Matthew 22.39 And the second [commandment] is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 22.40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Deuteronomy 5.20 Neither shalt thou bear false witness against thy neighbour.
Deuteronomy 5.21 Neither shalt thou desire thy neighbour's wife, neither shalt thou covet thy neighbour's house, his field, or his manservant, or his maidservant, his ox, or his ass, or any thing that is thy neighbour's.
Deuteronomy 5.22 These words the LORD spake unto all your assembly in the mount out of the midst of the fire, of the cloud, and of the thick darkness, with a great voice: and he added no more. And he wrote them in two tables of stone, and delivered them unto me. Matthew 5.1 And seeing the multitudes, he [Jesus]went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him: 5.2 And he opened his mouth, and taught them,
