10 Wonderful Words of Life:   The Commandments as Guide to Living God’s Way


Zoom Bible Study Facilitated by David Hindman

Wednesdays, January 13 - February 10 from 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.


From the earliest days of the Church, and especially for the last 1000 years, the 10 Commandments have been part of the crucial curriculum for shaping the lives of new followers of Jesus, and also have provided a helpful guide for how all disciples are to model their lives on God's blueprint for a healthy and holy life. Many may have learned them by heart; they are sometimes at the heart of our cultural wars, but what if these wonderful simple words are not so simple? Are they a guide for all people everywhere? What makes them so special? What is the relationship between the first table of commandments and the second? Why should we pay attention to them now that Christ has come? And if so, what do they mean today for us? These questions and others will be the focus of this five week study facilitated by David Hindman.
