Ten Commandments and Beatitude connection; How to help the poor and poor in spirit.

Christ created the Beatitudes to His own disciples selectively.  Christ’s disciples received the Beatitudes to teach them to others.  Moses the leader chosen people  who in turn was to give the tablets of the law to the Jews.  Both beatitudes and ten commandments were given to us by God, therefore they are not constructs of human race. Both the beatitudes and ten commandments are enunciated indeed enumerated God is the great mathematician.  Both commandments and beatitudes are specific.  Both the commandments and beatitudes were given to the chosen people.  Both the beatitudes synthesize the essential expectations by God of the two chosen people.  Now, The poor in the Bible basically explains that Whoever oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but Whoever is kind to the needy Honors God.  The phrase “poor in spirit” occurs in the Dead Sea Scrolls, and seems to have been an important notion to the Qumran community.
