Overview

Excerpt from The Decalogue: Being the Warburton Lectures Delivered in Lincoln's Inn and Westminster Abbey, 1919-1923

The subject of these Warburton Lectures I have - treated from three standpoints - the critical, the historical and the practical.

The Critical. - In the Introduction (pp. vii-lxiv) I have studied the Decalogue critically and have shown that it existed in various forms - at least five - its earliest dating from the close of the fourteenth century B.C., and its latest from the close of the third. The latest is preserved in the Nash Hebrew Papyrus (pp. viixxxiii). In its earliest and tersest form, in which each Commandment consisted of one brief crisp command (pp. xliv-xlviii), it comes from the great lawgiver, Moses. In the centuries that followed it received various accretions which were on the whole in keeping with the spirit of the original Commandments, save in the case of the Fourth as it is transmitted in Exodus xx. 11.
