In Mat 5:21-22,27-28, we read that Jesus quoted Mosaic commandments and then said, "but I say to you..."  Jesus made clear that not only obedience to the letter of the commandment is needed but also obedience to the spirit of the commandment is needed. Proverbs 4:23 (TEV) advised: "Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts."

In Mar 7:21-23 (TEV), Jesus said,

For from the inside, from a personís heart, come the evil ideas which lead him to do immoral things, to rob, kill, commit adultery, be greedy, and do all sorts of evil things; deceit, indecency, jealousy, slander, pride, and folly - all these evil things come from inside a person and make him unclean.

On the other hand Joh 12:47 (TEV) tells us that Jesus said,

I came, not to judge the world, but to save it.

The references below articulate both the letter and the spirit of each of the commandments. The New Testament repeatedly emphasizes that one's obedience to the commandments exemplifies one's salvation and freedom in Christ.
