The 10 Commandments Illustrated

Given on February 14, 2021 by Brett Helvie
Scripture: Exodus 20:22 – 23:19
Sermon Series: Lifestyle For Life

Many of the ordinances given in this section of Scripture seem so foreign to our lives in 21st century America and even bizarre (not boiling a goat in its mother’s milk). How do we, as followers of Jesus, go about deciding how to apply this section of God’s Word in our lives?
How do we deal with the fact that this section appears to regulate slavery instead of abolishing
it? How can we respond to atheistic critics who state that the God of the Bible is a God whose
ethics and morals are highly questionable?
According to this section, how were the Israelites of old to treat foreigners and aliens? How
do you think the principles behind these laws relate to the immigration debate raging in our
country?
As you read through this portion of Scripture, what evidence of God’s grace and love to you
see fleshed out in these regulations? What principles here do you see reflected in our current
legal system?
