Lesson 1:
“Introduction To the Ten Commandments”
(Exodus 20:1-17)

In this series we will examine each of the Ten Commandments and show how important they are even in our Age of Grace.
I. The Revelation of the Law

» God gave the law after leading Egypt out of bondage, thus illustrating it is HE and not IT that rescues and redeems us.

» Only twice is it recorded that God personally wrote a message with His own hand. (10 Commandments, Daniel 5)

» The law is God's means of revealing His perfection, our imperfection, and the remedy for sin... Jesus Christ.
II. The Relevance of the Law

» The Giving of the Law occurred in the wilderness, thus establishing it as a universal expectation.

» Although it was given to Israel, it is for all people.

The Law consisted of 3 unique codes:

Social addressed the expected norms within society.
Spiritual addressed the expected worship practices.
Moral addressed the expected behavior towards God and others. (10 Commandments)

Although we are no longer under the Law, the Moral Code is still in effect.

• The law is the focus of the last message spoken by God in the Old Testament, through Malachi.
II. The Relevance of the Law

Although we are no longer under the Law, the Moral Code is still in effect.

• The law is the focus of the last message spoken by God in the Old Testament, through Malachi.
• The New Testament either reinforces or enhances 9 of the 10 Commandments. The 4th commandment, the Sabbath, was simply replaced.
Matthew 5:21-22, 27-28, 33-35 NKJV
