  • The ten commandments - Their significance today

    1. 1. The TenCommandmentsעשרת הדברים<br />.... and their significance today.<br />
    2. 2. Wikipedia<br />In Biblical Hebrew, the commandments are called עשרת הדברים  transliterated (Aserethha-D'bharîm) <br />In Rabbinical Hebrew עשרת הדברות  transliterated (Aserethha-Dibroth), both translatable as "the ten words", "the ten sayings" or "the ten matters". <br />The English name "Decalogue" is derived from the Greek translation δεκάλογος dekalogos "ten terms", found in the Septuagint at Exodus 34:28and Deuteronomy 10:4.<br />
    3. 3. Basic Principles of the CommandmentsMan’s Law<br />Man might organise society in ways to suit himself and the laws would be:<br />Biased towards the powerful – inequitable<br />Ordered self first, family second others last<br />The powerful would prefer self first and last! <br />The 2 golden rules many people go by is:<br />What is yours is mine<br />Thou shalt not get found out<br />It avoids any responsibility to a higher power<br />But God’s law is very different<br />
    4. 4. Basic Principles of the CommandmentsGod’s Law<br />Unlike Mankind's own laws, God’s laws are organise to suit God not man <br />Biased towards the righteousness of God and therefore his right to expect men’s respect<br />God’s laws are therefore: <br />Equitable<br />Ordered first towards mans relationship with God <br />Second men’s relationships towards other men<br />
    5. 5. How Well Do You Know - 10 Commandments?<br />Close your Bibles <br />Write down on a piece of paper, 1 to 10<br />Write key words for each against 1 to 10<br />Hint they are organised<br />About God<br />About Family<br />About relationships with others<br />In Exodus 20: 2-17 and Deut 5: 6-21 the wording is essentially the same, but how many did you get?<br />
    6. 6. Did your list look like this?<br />I am the Lord your God<br />You shall have no other gods before me<br />You shall not make for yourself an idol<br />You shall not take the name of the Lord in vain<br />Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy<br />Honour your father and mother<br />You shall not kill/murder<br />You shall not commit adultery<br />You shall not steal<br />You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour<br />You shall not covet your neighbour's wife<br />You shall not covet anything that belongs to your neighbour<br />
    7. 7. Did your list look like this?<br />I am the Lord your God<br />You shall have no other gods before me<br />You shall not make for yourself an idol<br />You shall not take the name of the Lord in vain<br />Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy<br />Honour your father and mother<br />You shall not kill/murder<br />You shall not commit adultery<br />You shall not steal<br />You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour<br />You shall not covet your neighbour's wife<br />You shall not covet anything that belongs to your neighbour<br />The passage in Exodus 20 contains more than 10 imperative statements<br />
    8. 8. Exod 20: 2-17 & Deut 5: 6-21<br />
    9. 9. Exod 20: 2-17 & Deut 5: 6-21<br />
    10. 10. Exod 20: 2-17 & Deut 5: 6-21<br />
    11. 11. Division according to different religions<br />As we said, the passage in Exodus 20 contains more than ten imperative statements, totalling 14 or 15 in all. <br />While the Bible itself assigns the count of "10", using the Hebrew phrase aserethad'varim ('the 10 words', 'statements' or 'things'), this phrase does not appear in Exodus 20. <br />Various religions parse the commandments differently. The table below in Wikipedia helpfully highlights those differences:<br />So these 3 are essentially the same<br />
    12. 12. They can be grouped in 3 like this<br />About God<br />I am the Lord your God, You shall have no other gods before me<br />You shall not make for yourself an idol<br />You shall not take the name of the Lord in vain<br />Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy<br />About Family<br />Honour your father and mother<br />About Relationships with Others<br />You shall not kill/murder<br />You shall not commit adultery<br />You shall not steal<br />You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour<br />You shall not covet your neighbour's wife or anything that belongs to your neighbour<br />
    13. 13. HOW MANY OF THESE ARE OBSERVED OR SIGNIFICANT IN BRITAIN TODAY?<br />About God<br />I am the Lord your God, You shall have no other gods before me<br />You shall not make for yourself an idol<br />You shall not take the name of the Lord in vain<br />Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy<br />About Family<br />Honour your father and mother<br />About Relationships with Others<br />You shall not kill/murder<br />You shall not commit adultery<br />You shall not steal<br />You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour<br />You shall not covet your neighbour's wife or anything that belongs to your neighbour<br />
    14. 14. Our Attitude<br />We are supposed to standout form others being followers of Christ not followers of men<br />We may not be Jews or Judaizers, but these laws are God’s laws that were handed down to his holy people<br />We can’t just ignore them all – can we?<br />So “how significant are they today”<br />
    15. 15. English Law<br />Many, including Prof Francis Nigel Lee’s book “Common Law: Roots and Fruits”, claim that English law has its roots in Biblical Law<br />More importantly, What did Jesus Say?<br />I come not to destroy the law but fulfil it<br />
    16. 16. About God<br />I am the Lord your God, You shall have no other gods before me<br />You shall not make for yourself an idol<br />You shall not take the name of the Lord in vain<br />Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy<br />
    17. 17. About Family<br />Honour your father and mother<br />
    18. 18. About Relationships with Others<br />You shall not kill/murder<br />You shall not commit adultery<br />You shall not steal<br />You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour<br />You shall not covet your neighbour's wife or anything that belongs to your neighbour<br />
    19. 19. So Are These Significant Today? <br />What did Jesus Say?<br />I come not to destroy the law but fulfil it<br />All the law and the prophets are summarised like this: <br /> 35Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked ... ... 36Master, which is the great commandment in the law?  37 Jesus said unto him, <br />“Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.”  38This is the first and great commandment.  <br /> 39And the second is like unto it, <br /> “Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.”  <br />40On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.<br />
