Questions for Discussion and Reflection

  • Have you ever thought about the 10 Commandments, or the 10 Words, as grace and not law? How does this impact your perspective of the book of Exodus?

  • Read Matthew 22:35-40. If this is how Jesus understood the “law,” what does this say about its central message? What needs to be changed, shifted or confirmed in your understanding of the way the two testaments fit together?

  • If the 10 Commandments were written to protect everyone else’s rights, and not yours, think about how your life might be different if you started to operate this way within your community of faith. How would it change things if you were concerned with protecting other peoples’ rights instead of your own? Try to list three things you could do in the next week to practically show concern for other people within your community of faith.
