Original Covenant; Original Fear part 1

April 22, 2018 Speaker: Kyle Schwahn Series: Deuteronomy: A Covenant of Love

Scripture: Deuteronomy 5:1–5:33

HOME GROUP DISCUSSION:

- Many of our English translations of the Bible refer to the contents of Deuteronomy 5 as ten "commandments," but the original Hebrew is translated ten "words." Is the difference between "commandments" and "words" significant? If so, why?

- Moses told the children of Israel to have no other gods before the one true God. Does this being the first word (or commandment) carry any special meaning? How was this word relevant for the early Christian church, and how is this word relevant for followers of Christ today?

- It is clear we are not to vainly represent God's image or vainly use God's name. Why is this important to God? Why is this important to you?

- In what way can we look at the Sabbath differently than Moses and the children of Israel could? (hint: Where is our "rest" found?)
