"These things I command you" Jesus' Own Words from the 4 Gospels

Video from No Greater Love

"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." from video introduction
