With the power of God as his ally, Moses confronts the Pharaoh Ramses and demands freedom for his people. Ramses scoffs at Moses, and with the help of the Lord the Hebrew messenger brings a series of plagues down on the Egyptian people as he repeats his demand for freedom for the Jews. Reaction: The Ten Commandments is an incredible epic drama based on the Book of Exodus from the Old Testament. The Ten Commandments is a moving tale of how the Hebrews escaped slavery in ancient Egypt and went on to form their own nation.
Thus, this movie is mainly about the struggle for freedom as well as the price of maintaining it. Although the story is thousands of years old, The Ten Commandments, which is basically just a movie adaptation and expansion of the Book of Exodus, is still quite relevant. There are still parts of the world where peoples are being exploited by other peoples, and The Ten Commandments should be an inspiration to those oppressed to strive toward freedom. This freedom always comes at a price, however.
For the ancient Hebrews, the price was to follow the Ten Commandments, which became adapted into Judeo-Christian law and custom. The Ten Commandments, then, are like reflectors on a highway. They warn us of danger. They warn us when our life with God is headed in the wrong direction. They warn us when our life with God is careening toward danger. The Ten Commandments touch on two relationships. They tell us of our relationship with God and with our neighbor. This is appropriate for the Christian. Jesus Christ died to heal both our broken relationship with God and our broken relationship with our neighbor.
As might be expected from what we have already said, the Ten Commandments do not tell us how to love God or how to love our neighbor. They do, however, warn us when we are moving in the opposite direction of love. Nowadays I think that only four or five of the Ten Commandments actually apply to modern society because people today are evolving and liberating thus, others don’t follow The Ten Commandments maybe because of ignorance, though the other four still seem to serve us well. In any case, we will always need a law to govern ourselves, and I’m pretty happy with our constitution now.
