The 10 commandments were given to Moses on Mount Sinai in the book of Exodus. They are a guide for moral conduct, and represented a covenant between the Jewish people and God.
A guide is probably too loose of a term. These commandments in the Old Testament were to be kept without fail.
Jesus came to fulfill the law, he didn’t eliminate it, but perfectly fulfilled it.
What happened on mount sinai as the voice of God brought down the 10 Commandments is still applicable today as we teach our children the importance of the commandments.
These free printables will aid you in your Bible lessons as you teach the 10 commandments.
I find that one of the best ways to teach child about a lesson in the Bible is to get them to interact with the passages, these printables will do just that!
