        Mt. 5:17,18




        Spirit`s teachings


Do not think that I have come to destroy the law or the prophets; I have not come to destroy them but to fulfill them; for I say to you in truth that heaven and earth shall not pass away before everything in law is perfectly fulfilled up to one single iota and one single dot.

Law ?


Book of Genesis 37-50: Joseph


Book of Exodus

1: The Israelites are treated cruelly in Egypt

12: The Israelites had lived in Egypt for 430 years. On the day the 430 years ended, all the tribes of the LORD`s people left Egypt.

20: The Ten Commandments

Exodus 20: The Ten Commandments

God spoke and these were His words: “I am the LORD your GOD who brought you out of Egypt, where you were slaves ... “

Management strategy:

Undisciplined people;

Create civil laws;

Authority ? Attribute them to a divine origin!

Civil Laws: Examples.

Exodus22:  “ If someone steals a cow or a sheep and kill it or sells it, he must pay five cows for one cow and four sheep for one sheep. ... “

Leviticus: This book contains many of the laws and instructions God gave to Moses in the desert ...

Ch. 11:  Animals that may be eaten

Ch. 13: Laws concerning skin diseases

Ch. 20: Penalties for disobedience

vs6. “If any of you go for advice to people who consult the spirits of the dead, I will turn against you ...”



After hundreds of years ...

Some of those laws became a strict routine in that society ...




New paradigm!

Love God above all things and your neighbor as yourself, that`s the whole law and the prophets.

The best professor ever. New teachings in the most didactic way:

Living what He taught;


Path to happiness.

He taught us respecting our current state of knowledge:

Direct teachings;

Seeds for further teachings which demanded new basis/concepts/understanding through through the natural flow of time...


“... new science that has come to reveal to humans, by means of irrefutable proofs, the existence and nature of the spirit world and its relations with the corporeal world. ... “

Law of Old Testament : Moses

Law of the New Testament : Jesus


not personified in any particular individual;

came to fulfill teachings given by Jesus

It teaches not contrary to what Christ taught, but develops, completes and explains in clear terms for everybody what He stated in allegorical form. ... It is therefore the work of Christ, who Himself is presiding over the regeneration that is occurring, and who is preparing the reign of the kingdom of GOD on earth. 

God`s commandments given through Moses contained the seed of the broadest Christian morality;

Christ was the initiator of the purest and most sublime morality that is to renew the world, bring us together and make us brothers and sisters ...

The time has come in which moral ideas must be developed so that the progress contained in the designs of God may be realized.

Schopenhaeur quote: “All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.”

It was Moses who opened the way; Jesus continued the work; Spiritism shall finish it.

Final Comments

Stephen Hawke`s quote: ”The only future of human race is to go to space...”

Christ and Spiritism: “The greater the efforts to look towards ourselves; the faster the true happiness.”

Let`s thank God and Jesus Christ
