The Ten Commandments were not given just for the days of Moses the Prophet, nor for the olden times only, but they are for all generations. till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass (Matt. 5:18).
Yet, Christianity gave the commandments a certain concept that coincides with the sublimity of the New Testament. Thus, the Commandments remained without change but with a broader concept as God allows with His Grace through contemplation.
True indeed are the words of David the Prophet: "I have seen the consummation of all perfection, But Your commandment is exceedingly broad." (Ps. 119:96).
H.H. Pope Shenouda III, Coptic Pope of the Patriarch of the See of St. Mark
