Contemplations on the Ten Commandments Vol. 1

Front Cover
Dar El Tebaa El Kawmia, Aug 1, 1993 - 58 pages

The Ten Commandments were not given just for the days of Moses the Prophet, nor for the olden times only, but they are for all generations. till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass (Matt. 5:18)

Yet, Christianity gave the commandments a certain concept that coincides with the sublimity of the New Testament. Thus, the Commandments remained without change but with a broader concept as God allows with His Grace through contemplation.

True indeed are the words of David the Prophet: "I have seen the consummation of all perfection, But Your commandment is exceedingly broad." (Ps. 119:96).

This book is the fruit of the lectures delivered in 1967 by myself, and have been published several times in Arabic and English.

Pope Shenouda III
