“The Ten Commandments”
Dr. Patrick Miller writes in his book on the Ten Commandments that few biblical texts have played as large a role in the church and public life. The Ten Commandments probably rank along with the Lord’s Prayer and the Twenty-Third Psalm as the best-known and most memorized texts from the Bible.
The way that the Ten Commandments are communicated in Scripture tells us that they are intended to be the basic guidelines for our life. Among the indicators of their importance are the following:
All these features suggest that there is something of primary importance about the Ten Commandments. Repetition, placement, highlighting and divine authorship – all serve to inform the community of faith that these are the foundation for life as God’s people.
Join us this coming Sunday and each Sunday this fall as we study these incredibly important parts of Scripture.
