In which Book and Chapter of the Bible did God reveal the 10 Commandments?
God revealed the 10 Commandments a second time in which book of the Pentateuch?
Since the Law on the stone tablets was not revealed until Moses (who lived many, many years after Cain and Abel), so how would have Cain known it was wrong to kill Abel?
Good question. I don't know.
Because God told Cain secretly, "Don't do it."
Because his parents told him.
Because the Law is written on our hearts (our consciences).

In the River Jordan.
On Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa.
Who actually wrote the law?

Question 8 Explanation:
Yes, see Exodus 31:18, and Deuteronomy 9:10.
Were the people of Israel allowed to go up on to or even touch the mountain where Moses was up high receiving the Law on the two tablets of stone from God who descended in a fiery cloud?
Yes, they can go anywhere they want. They were God's people after all.
No, it was holy territory and God told them to stay back or they would die.
Question 9 Explanation:
Yes, see Exodus 19:12!
On which day did God tell Moses to have the people wash and get ready to hear the Law, the Ten Commandments?
On the first day of week
On the Sabbath, the seventh day
On the third day and on the third new moon after the people had gone out of Egypt.
Question 10 Explanation:
Good. See Exodus 19:1 and 11.
When Israel was at Mount Sinai about to receive the Law, God said, "Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob, and tell the people of Israel: You yourselves have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles' wings and brought you to myself. Now therefore, if you will indeed obey my voice and keep my covenant, you shall be my treasured possession among all peoples, for all the earth is mine; and you shall be to me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. These are the words that you shall speak to the people of Israel.”
True, Exodus 19:3-6.
False, Genesis 48:3-6.
Question 11 Explanation:
Indeed! Genesis ends with the people going down to Egypt. Then, 400+ years later, the Exodus is the event by which the people were brought out of Egypt.
What is a covenant?
It's the same thing as a commandment.
It's like a sacrament, but older.
It's a solemn and legally binding agreement, often between God and man, with consequences for breaking it and disobeying the agreement.
It's a special prayer revealed by God with seven petitions, an introduction, and a doxology.
Question 12 Explanation:
Excellent. The 10 Commandments are often called the Mosaic Covenant because God gave it through Moses and required them to obey. God also made promises to them for keeping (obeying) the covenant.
The people at the foot of Mt. Sinai watching were afraid and later asked Moses not to let God come talk to them directly, lest they die. How did Moses respond?
He said, "That's right Peeps, God is gonna get you. Stay back and stay afraid."
He said, "Fear the Lord, for it is better to fear than to die."
He said, “Do not fear, for God has come to test you, that the fear of him may be before you, that you may not sin."
He said, "Keep yourselves from sinning...and good luck with that."
What is another name for the Ten Commandments?
The Ten Covenants of My Fathers
Ten Things I forgot to do last summer
What is interesting about the way in which God made covenants with His people?
They made the covenants in terms of money and had to promise to pay back money for moral wrongs they did (transgressions).
They "cut" covenants, which required the death of an animal, such as a pigeon or a calf being cut in two pieces. If either of the two parties making the agreement broke the covenant, the fate of the animal would be their fate (death).
Question 15 Explanation:
See for example Jeremiah 34:18
Who ultimately dies after the people broke the Mosaic Covenant in order to pay the debt of punishment that was due?
God makes us die to pay for our disobedience.
God sent His own Son (Jesus) to die for the failed obedience of His own people and the sins of the whole world.
