The Ten Commandments and the Mosaic Covenant
• The terms of the Mosaic Covenant were summarized in the Ten Commandments that were etched on the tablets of stone for Moses by God on Mount Sinai:
– Deuteronomy 4:13 - He [the Lord] declared to you His covenant, the Ten Commandments, which He commanded you to follow and then wrote them on two stone tablets.
• The Ten Commandments were given specifically to the Nation of Israel.
– Exodus 34:27-28 - Then the LORD said to Moses, "Write down these words, for in accordance with these words I have made a covenant with you and with Israel." . . . And He [the Lord] wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant-- the Ten Commandments.
