The Story (The story about the Ten Commandments can be found in the bible in Exodus, chapter 19 and 20 )
WHILE MOSES WAS GONE ON THE MOUNTAIN, AARON GATHERED THE PEOPLE'S GOLD AND MADE AN IDOL SHAPED LIKE A CALF. WHEN MOSES SAW WHAT THEY HAD DONE, HE CRUSHED THE GOLDEN CALF INTO POWDER AND POURED IT INTO THE WATER. MOSES MADE THE PEOPLE DRINK THE WATER.What is the Meaning of the Story?
God sent Moses up the mountain so that he could receive the Ten Commandments. Up to now, there were no laws that the people had to follow, so God felt the need to provide rules on how His people were to love Him and to treat others. The first four commandments told how to respect God, and the last six dealt with how to deal with others.
HOW DO YOU TREAT GOD? DO YOU PUT HIM FIRST IN YOUR LIFE? DO YOU HONOR YOUR PARENTS? THE COMMANDMENTS GIVEN TO MOSES ARE STILL APPLICABLE TODAY AS WE HONOR MAN AND GOD.How did God give His Law?When God created people, He wrote the Law on their hearts. Later he arranged the Law in Ten Commandments, wrote it on two tables of stone, and made it known through Moses.
Rom. 2:14-15 Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law, since they show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts now accusing, now even defending them.
Bible narrative: God wrote His commandments directly for the Israelites (Ex. 19-20; 31:18). There are three kinds of laws in the Old Testament: the moral law, which tells all people their duty toward God and other people; the ceremonial law, which regulated the religious practices in the Old Testament; and the political law, which was the state law of the Israelites. Only the moral law was written into the human heart.
