"These things I command you" Jesus' own words from the 4 Gospels

Published 2019-02-28
Of all the beautiful things Jesus is recorded as saying in the 4 Gospels, His direct commands are so easily overlooked. So here they are! In canon order. From all four gospels, (and Acts from the resurrected Jesus). I hope you love them.
I did not include 'implied commands', like the ones beginning "If you...", or the ones that begin "whoever does this or does that will be..." as they are more like promises than commands. I tried to include only those things Jesus said that are unambiguous commands: "do this; don't do that". However, "peace be with you" is included as I could not tell if it was a blessing or a command. Maybe it is both?
Also, where Jesus quoted OT scripture or rebuked Satan is not included as He starts with "you have heard it said..."

Nonetheless, these are the commands of Jesus. 234 of them. In Jesus's own words.

In the 4 Gospels of the Holy Bible are over 230 commands that Jesus gave on how to live; how to be made whole; how to know better the kingdom of heaven; how to receive God’s Holy Spirit; how to do God’s work in life; and how to become reconciled with God. Throughout the 4 gospels many are repeated. In 2 of the Gospels you will find Jesus's own words on what is referred to as "The Great Commission" ( 33:24 and 49:13 ) ("go into all the world..."). Jesus's Greatest Commandment in the gospel of John; instructions on receiving the Holy Spirit / Holy Ghost in the synoptic gospels (1:22:49); implorings to follow Jesus; and all the commands in the gospel of the Holy Bible in the words of Jesus.

Only commands of Jesus are included in this video (and the pdf), except those such as Jesus’s instruction to the Samaritan woman at the well to ‘give me a drink’ (John 4-7).

Apart from these, I have endeavoured to make the list complete. Implied commands, scriptural-promises and 'if' statements are not included as they are not strictly commands, even though many can be seen as implying instruction. Good for you if you read them this way.

    Jesus Christ healed me! This is my story about my healing!I was extremely ill! I had diabetes and kidney failure, which urgently requires dialysis! I prayed to God to heal me, not for me, because I don't deserve it, but for my little children, who were left without a mother! in exactly that day, in which I prayed, the Lord healed me! I suddenly felt the pain in my kidneys go away, as well as the dryness in my mouth (diabetes). I'm a new women now! I thank the Lord for His mercy and love for us!!!!!!
