Charts 8 & 9

These charts show the Statutes and Ordinances in Exodus and the Statutes and Ordinances in Deuteronomy, in a bit more detail than the previous charts, and to help illustrate the similarities we have highlighted the points that are the same in each book in green, and the points that are similar in both books we have highlighted in blue.

So you can see there are quite a few points that are different, which shows that the two covenants are not the same.

Deuteronomy Overview (Chart 5)

Book of Deuteronomy:

Deuteronomy is a book that once again talks about a covenant. It is at the end of Israel's wanderings. This Covenant, which includes the Ten Commandments, is delivered by Moses on the plains of Moab (Deut 29:1), forty years after the original Covenant was given by God at Mt Sinai.

This book also talks about the appointment of Joshua, conditions for blessings and cursings, and Moses' passing.

This book reveals some fascinating insights which will appear as the study progresses.

Exodus 20 – 23 (Chart 2)

Chart 2: Exodus chapters 20 - 23 in detail (we will be referring to this section of Exodus in the main Study)

We have presented an overview of the events in the whole book of Exodus in Chart 1, Now we need to see where the Covenant, given on Mt Sinai is recorded. In Exodus chapter 19 it describes how it was delivered, but the actual Old Covenant, including the 10 Commandments, is written in Exodus chapters 20 to 23, and then ratified in chapter 24 (verse 8).

It is important to note that the 10 Commandments are a part of the Old Covenant - in fact it introduces the Covenant.
