(19-21) Our passage this week is filled with laws – and many are further explanations and applications of the Ten Commandments. Let’s consider just one – the sixth commandment – you shall not murder. How do you see this commandment explained and applied to Israel in these chapters?
Are these explanations and applications directly applicable for us today? Why or why not?
Are there principles we might learn from these explanations and applications that would be applicable for us today? What might they be?
(25) That we are right to take principles from the Law of Moses and apply those principles to our lives today is demonstrated by Paul. What principle does Paul take from verse 4 that he applies to the church today in I Corinthians 9:7-11?
(18, 22-25) The context of the passage suggests some laws are universal laws by calling the breaking of that law an “abomination to the Lord.” How might we need to specifically apply each of these laws to our world today?
