ISRAEL BEGAN TO BE A NATION WHEN IT CROSSED THE RED SEA
- They needed a law to govern the people. (What happens to a people without a law? 2 Chr. 15:3; 2:12; 1 Cor. 9:21)
- Two weeks later ( 20:1-17), God gave them the Law (only ten of the commandments at that time) on Mt. Sinai.
THE OLD TESTAMENT LAW IS MORE THAN JUST THE 10 COMMANDMENTS.
