Wow, the beginning of this story has been epic! God’s chosen people have been liberated from Egyptian slavery and are headed to the Promised Land. However, God decides before they get there they should probably adopt some “Community Guidelines.” God sends Moses up to the top of Mount Sinai to retrieve these Ten Commandments. God’s message through Moses is that when these commands are followed the community will prosper and not suffer. Surely they will obey?! Right?!
