Interpreting the Ten Commandments

Chuck CainOn Sunday April 26, 2015, seven principles for interpreting the Ten Commandments were reviewed: the biblical rule, the inside/outside rule, the two-sided rule, the rule of categories, the “Am I my brother’s keeper rule, the law of the tables, and the rule of love. Finally, each of the Commandments was read and briefly discussed. 

The Israelites response at Sinai is described in Exodus 20:18-21. They trembled at hearing the voice of God and said to Moses, “You speak to us, and we will listen; but do not let God speak to us, lest we die.” Moses is sought to be their mediator, their lawyer, before God. Moses then ascends Mount Sinai a fourth time. (The three previous occasions are described in Chapter 19.) There Moses receives the Book of the Covenant recorded on Exodus 20:23 through 23:13. The Book of the Covenant will later be read to the people as stated in Exodus 24:7.
