How might we be shaped by the Ten Commandments, and how might they be chiseled upon our hearts, minds and lives? One of the key identity markers for God’s people is the Ten Commandments. When God called His people, the Hebrews, out of slavery from Egypt and into a new land of promise, God established a new covenant with them. This covenant was an agreement outlining God’s relationship with the people. It was a covenant of grace characterized by a new way of life as a community and as individuals.
While there were many parts of this, the Ten Commandments—or Decalogue—are a good summary of this covenant. In this series, we will continue our exploration of what Exodus means to us as 21st century followers of Jesus.
