What Are the Big 10 (Commandments)?

What Are the Big 10 (Commandments)?

Wednesday, May 12: 8:00 pm

with Deborah Mowshowitz


The usual 10 commandments are listed twice, once in Exodus (version #1)  and once in Deuteronomy (version #2). The two versions are similar, but not identical, and neither one divides nicely into 10 ‘commandments.’   Version #3 is in Exodus 34, and is completely different.  It doesn’t divide easily into 10 either. We will compare and contrast all 3 versions, and consider how the various versions (especially the usual 10) are divided into 10.
