See how the edicts supposedly delivered from God to Moses have shaped centuries of human experience.

  • Why do the Ten Commandments survive while another 603 languish largely forgotten?
  • A compelling investigation of the fundamental underpinnings of Judeo-Christian society.
  • Part one of a two-part series.

What's the real story behind history's most famous written document? THE TEN COMMANDMENTS examines the three different--and sometimes contradictory--biblical accounts of Moses on the Mount, and then looks at each of the 10 Commandments in historical context. Adultery, perjury, murder, theft, graven images, Sabbath laws, coveting--what did they mean then? And do they mean anything today?

There were not just 10, however--Moses issued 603 other edicts to his followers. Discover what was in these commandments and why have they been largely forgotten. A host of top thinkers, including legal author Alan Dershowitz and Old Testament expert Daniel Smith-Christopher, reveal how the issues raised by the 10 Commandments have been viewed--and punished--throughout history. From ancient times to modern times, see how the definitions, the laws, and morality have changed within the parameters of history's most formidable "Top 10" list.
