    Exodus 21:1-11 Bible Study - The Book of the Covenant - Slavery in the Bible

    Exodus 21:1-11 Bible Study - The Book of the Covenant - Slavery in the Bible

    What does the Bible say about Slavery?  This week we look at Exodus 21:1-11 which holds the ordinances for the Israelites on how to deal with their Hebrew slaves (Jews that were slaves within the Jewish camp).  To better understand what the Bible has to say on the subject we additionally look at Leviticus 25:39-43 and Deuteronomy 15:12-18.

    Slavery was a common practice of all people groups in Moses' day as well as in Jesus’ day.  In this study, we look at what Jesus has to say to us in how we treat one another and how we ought to serve Him, as a bondslave, a slave by choice.

    The Bible is not a political book, it tells God’s people how they ought to interact with each other and with Him.  That call is clear, regardless of our station in life, we are to put God first in everything and lift up everyone around us higher than ourselves.  Slave or free we are to work for everyone as working for the Lord, and lift others above ourselves. 

    Read: 1 Cor 7.17-24, Eph 6:5-9, Php 2:1-18

    Exodus 20:17 - The 10th Commandment - Don’t Covet

    The 10th commandment calls us to not lust after what our neighbor has.  In our modern day, our “neighbor” is far more than the couple that live next door, our neighbors are everyone we know.  Coveting after what they have, desiring it for ourselves leads only to harm and further sin.  Join us as we dive into this final commandment in Exodus 20.17.

    Exodus 20:16 - The 9th Commandment - Speak Truth (do not lie)

    Exodus 20:16 - The 9th Commandment - Speak Truth (do not lie)

    The 9th commandment calls Israel to “not give false testimony against thy neighbor.”  That command holds true for us today, not to lie but to speak truth.  A lie can be more than just not telling the truth, it can also be misleading or intentionally deceiving.  The Bible calls us to reflect Christ and He is truth!

    Outline:

    01:21 - Exodus 20.16, “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor”

    Exo 23.1-2 

    Exo 23.6-8

    Deu 17.6-7

    Jhn 14.6

    Jhn 8:31-47

    Mat 26.57-68

    14:17 - what is truth?  Truth is hard to define today.

    18:12 - Tips from John Courson  


    Pro 10.19 - speak less


    Psalm 119.28-29 - pray this


    T.H.I.N.K. before you speak: Truth, Helpful, Inspirational, Necessary and Kind



    21:34 - Eph 4.22-32
