Exodus 20: The Ten Commandments

In order for a new nation to be birthed, there was going to have to be a new foundation laid for it to be built upon. Therefore, God gave them the Ten Commandments. These new commands were to be the foundation and framework upon which all other things were to be built so that this new nation would endure. Each of these was written for our own protection and provision and is still valid today. Jesus summed them up in Matthew 22:35-40.
