TEN COMMANDMENTS & CEREMONIAL LAW

1. What are the differences between the Ten Commandments and the ceremonial law?
1. The Ten Commandments are eternal (Psalm 111:7-8), while the ceremonial law was added after the fall and ended at the cross (Galatians 3:19, Colossians 2:14).
2. The Ten Commandments were written by the finger of God (Exodus 31:18), while the ceremonial law was written by Moses (Deuteronomy 31:24-26).
3. The Ten Commandments were written on two tables of stone (Exodus 31:18), while the ceremonial law was written in a book (Deuteronomy 31:24-26).
4. The Ten Commandments were kept inside the ark of the covenant (Deuteronomy 10:2), while the ceremonial law was kept in the side of the ark of the covenant (Deuteronomy 31:24-26).
5. The Ten Commandments contain the seventh day Sabbath, while the ceremonial law contains at least three annual Jewish sabbaths: The feast of trumpets, the day of atonement, and the feast of booths or tabernacle.
6. The seventh day Sabbath points backward to the creation (Exodus 20:11), while the ceremonial law pointed forward to the redemption (Colossians 2:14,16,17).
