Episode on Deuteronomy 5 (The Ten Commandments) is Live 
Join us as Dr. Carmen Joy Imes (Biola University) talks to us about Deuteronomy 5 (The Ten Commandments). We discuss a number of things including: what to call the Ten Commandments (Decalogue?), how they are numbered in various religious traditions, the nature of the “two tablets” and whether they deal with vertical and horizontal commands, their contribution to the treaty between God and his people, misconceptions about each commandment, and whether Deuteronomy follows their structure.
