What is the greatest of Moses 10 Commandment?
God sent Moses up the mountain so he could receive the Ten Commandments to give to His people. The people did not have laws from God that they had to follow,so God felt the need to provide rules on how His people were to love Him and to treat others. The first four commandments told how to respect God, and the last six dealt with how to deal with others.
The Love of God and of neighbor is the summary of the law and prophets.
The understanding of love and of the commandments gives one great understanding: "Thou art not far from the kingdom
"Love is the fulfilling of the law."
The law is fulfilled by love.
Ten Commandments of Moses and Martin Luther
Explanation of a Lutheran approach to both commandments. Martin Luther wrote extensively concerning the Ten Commandments. On the Honor you Father and Mother, one, follows Luthers explanation of this commandment that says that not only are we to respect and obey our earthly parents, they are given to us by our heavenly Father as guardians and teachers. Furthermore, Luther adds, we need to obey other figures of authority as coming from God as they are there to maintain good order in society. Only when it is clear that these authority figures are telling us to do things against God, are we to consider disobedience, as Peter and John did in the book of Acts when they were told to stop preaching about Jesus, "We must obey God rather than humans."
Read this commentary by Adam Clarke on the Exodus 34 and the Ten Commandments:
Moses follows the numbering of the Catholic Ten Commandments of Moses, and does not list the command concerning, No Graven Images.
Most biblical scholars will say that the Hebrew word that is translated as kill, more accurately means, to murder. Some Lutherans view this as a prohibition on unlawful killing. Others argue that it means all killing, even in war is bad. While Lutherans are not historically one of the, Peace Churches, the pacifist churches such as Quakers or Mennonites, some Lutherans agree with the Catholic church and believe that Jesus teaches that all killing is always wrong. They are against the death penalty, and war. Others hold to the classic just war theory, that states that sometimes, war is the lesser of two evils. By this theory, a civil authority has the right and obligation to protect people from an aggressor that would seek to enslave or destroy them or others (Hitler would be the easiest example). Also according to this theory, all other peaceful means must be tried first, and civilians deaths are to be held to the absolute minimum. Furthermore, once a war is won or lost, there are to be no reprisals or revenge killings. According to this way of thinking, a "just war¯" is a civil act of justice, like a police action, which may include deadly force, such as when a police officer is force to shoot a person who threatens either the officers life, or that of another child. Moses is commanded to hew two tables similar to the first, and bring them up to the mount, to get the covenant renewed, 1-3. He prepares the tables and goes up to meet the Lord, 4. The Lord descends, and proclaims his name JEHOVAH, 5. What this name signifies, 6, 7. Moses worships and intercedes, 8, 9. The Lord promises to renew the covenant, work miracles among the people, and drive out the Canaanites, &c., 10, 11. No covenant to be made with the idolatrous nations, but their altars and images to be destroyed, 12-15. No matrimonial alliances to be contracted with them, 16. The Israelites must have no molten gods Martin Luther and Ten Commandments
