Lecture no. 7 from the course: Understanding the Old Testament
Taught by Professor Robert D. Miller II | 26 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses
Consider why the Decalogue, the Ten Commandments, has a significance beyond that of the other 603 commandments in the Torah, and note how the Ten are numbered within different religious traditions. Examine each of the commandments and grasp how these directives by God were intended not to constrain humanity, but to guarantee freedom, of the community and of each individual.
