The Ten Commandments

August 20, 2021 – October 8, 2021

The Ten Commandments

Do the Ten Commandments seem like an archaic list of rules to you? Do you ever wonder why Christians still follow these Old Testament laws, but not others? What makes them different? In this Groundwork series, we’ll take a close look at each of the Ten Commandments as given by God to the Israelites in the book of Exodus. We’ll also examine additional scripture passages in both the Old and New Testaments to help us better understand what the commandments mean, why they still apply to Christians saved by Jesus Christ, and what it looks like to follow these core commandments in today’s world.
