The Moral Scripts of Christianity and Judaism

Likely the most widely recognized teaching in the Torah (Jewish Holy BooK) and the Christian Bible, are the Ten Commandments.
Ten Commandments

​ ​The Ten Commandments are shared by Christianity and Judaism
"And God spoke all these words, saying: 'I am the LORD your God
ONE: 'You shall have no other gods before Me.'
TWO: 'You shall not make for yourself a carved image--any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.'
THREE: 'You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.'
FOUR: 'Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.'
FIVE: 'Honor your father and your mother.'
SIX: 'You shall not murder.'
SEVEN: 'You shall not commit adultery.'
EIGHT: 'You shall not steal.'
NINE: 'You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.'
TEN: 'You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's.'

Jesus Summarizes morals of the Old Testament

A reflective reading of Christ's teaching reveals that the first four commandments given to the children of Israel are contained in the statement: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind." It continues that the last six commandments are enclosed in the statement: "Love your neighbor as yourself."
In other words, Jesus categorized these guiding scriptures into two groups. The first four commandments are guiding our conduct toward God and the last six guide our conduct toward each other.
