Exodus 22-23: The Covenant of Sinai Part 2
Preview Talk: 
$ 5.50

This talk is concerned with the praxis of the Ten Commandments: the practical ways to obey the law in Sinai. By extrapolation, one may think about the practical ways through which we demonstrate our obedience to God's Law.

God is not interested in giving us a law and letting us be. He is not an absentee God, watching over us from afar, and intervening only when we stray too far away. God should not be thought only in the judgment of Sodom and Gomorra, the plagues of Egypt or the destruction of the Golden Calf, for the Lord is near, very near indeed and He takes as much delight in a smile on the face of a child that he did in the creation of the universe. 

God, our God is a personal, loving, caring and just God. 

In this talk we study a set of laws pertaining to the loss of property and economic goods, laws pertaining to moral conduct, as well as laws regarding the religious calendar. Our goal is not so much the laws themselves as it is the Giver of these laws. By understanding God's motive in giving these laws, we will be in a better position to understand what he expects of us today. After all, justice demands that if God required the Israelites under Moses to live according to His Law, then we, who are called to live under the grace of Jesus Christ would be required to live this law most perfectly. After all, to whom much is given, much is required.
