After the Lord gives the Ten Commandments at Mount Sinai, we come to a part of the Bible that many find confusing, boring, irrelevant, or even disturbing: the details of the Mosaic Law. Since God’s people no longer need to follow these commands, why should we bother reading this part of Scripture? We begin by answering that question: there are spiritual treasures hidden within the Law of Moses, for those willing to do the work of digging them out. We then proceed to tackle the first set of rules, those related to making altars, slavery, and limits on vengeance.
