The Other Commandments July 22, 2013

Filed under: Catholicism,History,Neat,Religion,Stuff — Fr. Victor Feltes @ 8:00 am

Did you know that there were more than Ten Commandments? The Jewish rabbis numbered a total of 613 Commandments in the Law of Moses. Some are prescriptive of things which must be done, while others proscribe things as being wrong to do.

Interestingly, if I mentally bracket-off my membership in the New Covenant, I am something like 80% in compliance with the Old (at least on a per-command basis.) It helps that I’m not a farmer of fields or livestock and don’t minister at the Temple.
