Original Covenant; Original Fear part 2
Scripture: Deuteronomy 5:16–5:33
HOME GROUP DISCUSSION:
- Why is honoring our fathers and mothers important enough to be one of the ten commandments? What is it a picture of?
- How would you describe what Jesus had to say about Deuteronomy 5:17-18 in Matthew 5:21-30? (Read both passages out loud.) How do our current cultural definitions of murder and adultery differ from the way scripture defines them?
- Kyle offered and expanded view of what it means to "bear false witness" against our neighbors. How far do you think this commandment extends into your own life?
- In Deuteronomy 5:29, Moses wrote that God said, "Oh, that they had such a heart as this always, to fear me and to keep all my commandments...." What is meant by the word "fear?" What is the result of fearing God?
