    The author has compiled a list of 40 commands that were given by Christ to the New Testament Church. The number seems a bit arbitrary - other sources suggest 49 or 50 commandments. One website suggests that there are only 7 commandments. The author makes no attempt to argue this number - so I will refrain from trying to defend or argue against the actual number of commands given by Jesus.

    The current book takes the 40 identified commands and presents in multiple ways, allowing the student to process them as he or she needs. At the heart of all the commands is LOVE, more specifically Love God then your neighbor and yourself. The 40 commands then are reviewed alphabetically and in their biblical order. This is followed by a list of synonyms that could be viewed as being associated with each command and a set of cross references associated with each command. This material takes up about one-half of the book.

    The last half of the book focuses on other commands found in Scripture -

    The Ten Commandments

    The Lord's Prayer

    Instructions for Disciples

    The Beatitudes

    Woes

    Parables and Lessons

    Miracles

    List of names and titles used in this book

    Some of these are accompanied with additional material, but for the most part they stand alone. The book concludes with the two indexes - a Biblical index and a grouping of the commands by category.

    The book appears to be the result of a great deal of personal study. There is not devotional material associated with the book - making the value of the book dependent on the readers use of it in his or own personal devotions. Though a great deal of information appears to be gathered into this one volume, I am not sure I see a purpose for doing so. I might hope that the author could bring together his or her own thoughts thus answering the question - Why is this material important? This is not done, leaving this reader to wonder, Why?

    Christs 40 Commandments is a topical listing from the teachings of Jesus in the four Gospels. The 40 Commandments, as the topical listing is designated, is given variously in three sections: an alphabetical listing, a listing with one verse for each of the Commandments from Matthew, and a listing of the Commandments with a compilation of verses from the four Gospels. The bulk of the book is taken up with this third presentation. There is also a listing of the Commandments with associated keywords. Seven, of eight, appendices also present helpful topical listings from Jesus teaching. For example, appendix E is Woes, with a listing of the woes pronounced by Jesus in His earthly ministry.

    The title Christs 40 Commandments may be a bit misleading in that it can give the impression that Jesus only taught on these 40 things. It would be hard to limit Jesus teaching in such a way. But, for the sake of a topical listing, Wagenblatt has taken an interesting approach. She explains how the listing came to be, in the preface, Every time Jesus gave an instruction or commandment within the Gospels, I recorded it. By my count [sic] there are forty of these commandments. She also uses the term Sacraments for number 33 of the 40 Commandments, listing things like the baptism of Jesus (Matt. 3:15) and Peter being told that he would be given the keys of the kingdom (Matt. 16:19). The word Sacraments means, a religious ceremony or act of the Christian Church that is regarded as an outward and visible sign of inward and spiritual divine grace (The New Oxford American Dictionary), and is not a biblical concept.

    Aside from the unscriptural designation to Sacraments mentioned above, I can see where this topical listing could be a valuable resource for study in lesson and sermon preparation. I could easily see myself using it as the basis for an extended sermon series on the teaching of Jesus or for a lectureship program. However, as with any topical reference, care needs to be taken to study each reference in connection to the header topic to see if it truly does fit with that topic. The final say on the correctness, or incorrectness, of how any passage is used is the Bible itself, not Mrs. Waganblatts opinion. Do your own study! (cf. Acts 17:11).

    CHRISTS 40 COMMANDMENTS

    Compiled by Renee Valverde Wagenblatt

    The author has compiled 40 commandments or instructions from the teachings of Jesus Christ in the four Gospels. As she read the Gospels and Jesus gave an instruction she made a list of them and came up with 40, she calls them commandments. Matthew is the only Gospel that contains all of them. These are important instructions for us to live our lives, just as the Ten Commandments from the Old Testament are important. Normally we only think of two commandments from the New Testament but all the instructions given by Jesus are commandments. Renee has made a alphabetical list of each with associated verses found in the four Gospels. On occasion, she has included adjacent verses to give clarification.

    The author done this listing for the purpose of sharing the Gospel of Christ and admits she is not a Bible scholar and only wants to share the comments or instruction of Jesus.

    I think this is an important list and may be used many ways in helping with understanding the Bible. It would be great for group study and a way to help kids to get to know the teachings of Jesus. A very enjoyable ebook and contain a lot of information.
