The Bible teaches that when Jesus lived with people He talked about the Ten Commandments. He said the commandments are about two main things, loving God and loving others. 

If we were were to look closely at the Ten Commandments we would discover there are two types of rules: rules about loving God and rules about loving people. Christians believe Jesus wanted people to understand that by loving God and loving others they would be able to follow all the commandments, they would be able to live God's way.
