Questions to think about as you read (page 475 at back of book)

  1. How were the people to prepare themselves to meet with God?
  2. What does this story of the giving of these new commands tell you about the character of God?
  3. What was the purpose of the Ten Commandments?
  4. How can God be both the merciful forgiver of sin and the punisher of the guilty?
  5. The Israelites became impatient and finally made a golden idol in the shape of a calf for themselves.  What are some false gods/idols worshiped in our society today?
  6. The Lord spoke to Moses “as one speaks to a friend.”  What steps can you take to gain a deeper understanding of who God is?
