We will investigate the virtue ethic of the Ten Commandments from the Old Testament applied to contemporary life, from the ancients through contemporary relevant issues, with an emphasis on assessing our current response following the teachings of Jesus, and on learning and living the qualities of character of a true believer in Christ. The Spirit of the Law will be studied under Jesus’ teaching, “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them” (Matthew 5:17). We will study each of the Ten Commandments of the Mosaic Law each week, demonstrating how we can apply those ten precepts to Jesus’ teaching, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself” (Luke 10:27) in our world today.
