THE TEN COMMANDMENTS (OT214)
DIVINE PRINCIPLES OF GOOD LIVING
This is a study of Divine Principles of Good Living revealed for people of all ages within the Ten Words of God through Moses. This is essentially a study for laymen, ministers and teachers of the Church, highlighting vital principles which govern healthy, happy living. The English text will be studied with insights from the Hebrew.
Special emphasis is placed on (1) the principles of good living as they are given by Moses, (2) these principles as they are illustrated and defined in the life and work of Jesus, (3) and these principles as they are ultimately applied to us today within the church.
This course aims to:
► Increase our understanding and appreciation of the Ten Commandments, their setting in Exodus and Deuteronomy, their content, their influence upon Jesus, and their relevance for us today.
► Probe critical and valuable theological and social issues raised by the Ten Commandments.
► Apply the extremely relevant and inspiring insights of these words to our own Christian life and faith today.
This course is worth four quarter units of credit in the degree programs of Embassy College.
