Moses: Covenant with A Nation

More than 3,000 years ago, the fledgling nation of Israel stood at the foot of Mount Sinai, also known as Horeb, in the middle of the desert. Lighting flashed, thunder boomed, and God descended onto the mountain in a great ball of fire.

In an event that would forever change the human experience, God spoke to the nation, giving them the Ten Commandments and the Torah, the first five books of the Bible. God charged the Israelites with transmitting the wisdom of the Torah to the entire world, entering into a covenant with Israel that still exists to this very day. That covenant, instituted under the leadership of Moses, is known as the Mosaic Covenant.

For the first time in history, all humankind was officially given God’s requirements for holy living. The Law was given to reveal God’s righteousness and holiness (Exodus 19:23; Romans 7:12), and to establish God’s standard of righteousness for His people (Deuteronomy 7:6; Isaiah 62:12).
