Approach: Because the Mosaic Covenant is challenging to read and understand, an overview is provided with a focus on the Ten Commandments.

Hermeneutic objective: Exploring what sin is through careful observation and discussion of the Ten Commandments.

Theological objective: The essence of the Law of Moses can be summed up in the Decalogue. By learning what sin is and the judicial process of atoning for it, one can learn how to be holy as God is holy.
