The Ten Commandments are famous. But what are they really? In this study we introduce an often overlooked feature of the 10 commandments as we listen to Moses introduce them. As always, we see how this prepares the way for the New Covenant in Jesus Christ.
Having introduced the 10 commandments in the previous study, we now look closely at the first two commandments from Deuteronomy 5. We also see how it is helpful to view the commandments as ‘cross-shaped’.
In this study we finish our 5-part series in the 10 commandments by looking at the last three. We see how the tenth commandment in particular, exposes our sin and shows us that it is impossible for any man, except the Son of Man, to keep the 10 commandments.
Starting in Deuteronomy 12 all the way to the end of chapter 26 Moses gives situational examples of how the 10 Commandments work out in real life for the Israelites. We think about how this case law teaches us today how to live real life God’s way.
In this final study in our series in Deuteronomy we look closely at Moses’ swansong. Moses gives us clues that point to the amazing way God has answered the dilemma of the entire Old Testament: how He can be compassionate to His people who deserve His wrath.
