The Ten Commandments: an Introduction
Topic: Exodus Passage: Exodus 20:1–20:17
It would be hard to find another section of literature of any kind that has had as big of an impact on mankind and modern society greater than the impact the Ten Commandments have had. Also known as the Decalogue, or “Ten Words” in Hebrew, the Ten Commandments hold a unique place of prominence in human history, not only for what they meant to the Hebrew people at Mt. Sinai, but also what they mean in the life of the Christian today.
