Back to the Beginning (20:1-2)



  1. If children are to honor their parents, what is expected of parents in relationship to their children (see Deuteronomy 6:4-9, which comes right after the restatement of the Ten Commandments in Deuteronomy 5)?
  1. Purity, faithfulness, and contentment are beautiful. Why are they so rare?
