The Ten Commandments - Part 2


Mark continues with A Trial Lawyer's Brief on Biblical Law: A Reflection of God’s Character with a focus on the third of the Ten Commandments. Mark looks in depth at the third commandment "Thou shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain", and the question, "what's in a name?". Mark shows throughout scripture how the word "name", translated from the Hebrew word "shem", is often used as a label or identifier reflecting a person's life experiences, skill set, references or reputation, such as 'where you've been' or 'what you've done' – leading us back to “..shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain…” and the most mis-understood of the Ten Commandments.
