Can Some Of The Teachings From The New Testament Be Found In The Talmud?

From The Book Of Matthew:

Matthew 5:7 Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.

Talmud, Shabbath 151b Rabbi Gamliel said: "Whoever has mercy upon creatures will be granted mercy from heaven."

Matthew 5:10--11 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.

Talmud, Baba Kamma 93a Rabbi Abbahu said: "A man should always try to be among the persecuted rather than the persecutor."

Matthew 5:24 leave your gift there before the altar and go; first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.

Talmud, Aboth 5:14 hard to anger and easily reconciled is a kindly man.

Matthew 5:28 But I say to you that every one who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

Talmud, Kallah, Chapter 1 He who regards a woman with an impure intention is as if he had already had relations with her.

Matthew 5:37 Let what you say be simply "Yes" or "No."

Talmud, Baba Mezia 49 Rabbi Judah said: "your `yes' shall be true, and your `no' shall be true."

Matthew 5:48 You, therefore, must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

Talmud, Shabbath 133b Abba Saul said: "Be like Him just as He is gracious and compassionate, so you be gracious and compassionate."

Matthew 6:3--4 But when you give charity, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your charity may be in secret.

Talmud, Baba Bathra 9b Rabbi Eleazar said: "A man who gives charity in secret is greater."

Matthew 6:7 And in praying do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard for their many words.

Talmud, Berakoth 61a Rabbi Huna said in the name of Rabbi Meir: "A man's words should always be few in addressing G-d."

Matthew 6:14--15 For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father also will forgive you; but if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Talmud, Rosh Hashanah 17a Whose sin does He forgive? Him who forgives transgression.

Matthew 6:19--20 Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust consume and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consumes and where thieves do not break in and steal.

Talmud, Baba Bathra 11a After King Monbas' family rebuked him for giving away all the family's treasures, he answered: "My ancestors stored treasures here below, and I store treasures in heaven... My ancestors stored treasures in a place that could be reached by human hands, but I have stored [them] in a place that can be reached by no human hand..."

Matthew 6:34 Therefore, do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself....

Talmud, Sotah 48b Rabbi Eliezer said: He who has only a morsel of bread in his basket, and asks: "What shall I eat tomorrow?" is a man of little faith.

Matthew 6:34 ...let the day's own trouble be sufficient for the day.

Talmud, Berakoth 9b Moses said to G-d: "L-rd of the universe, sufficient is the evil in its time!"

Matthew 7:1--2 Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get.

Talmud, Shabbath 127b Our Rabbis taught: "He who judges his neighbor favorably is himself judged favorably."
Talmud, Sotah 8b Rabbi Meir said: "The way one measures others will be meted out for him."

Matthew 7:3--5 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the beam that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother: "Let me take the speck out of your eye," when there is the beam in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the beam out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye.

Talmud, Arakin 16b Rabbi Tarfon said: "... for if one says to him: `Remove the speck from between your eyes,' he would answer: `Remove the beam from between your eyes!'"

Matthew 7:12 So whatever you wish that men would do to you, do so to them; for this is the law and the prophets.

Talmud, Shabbath 31a Rabbi Hillel said: "What is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbor. That is the whole Law; the rest is its commentary. Go and learn it!"
