Thinking about the origins of the Ten Commandments can be fun:

But according to journalist David Hazony, the commandments themselves are woefully under-valued and insufficiently understood by religious and non-religious thinkers alike. By his measure, they offer deep and valuable insights into how to form just societies and lead redemptive lives. He makes that argument in his new book, The Ten Commandments: How Our Most Ancient Moral Text Can Renew Modern Life, as well as in conversation with host Sara Ivry on Monday’s episode of Vox Tablet.

David Hazony is may be well meaning, but he ignores to know HaShem is G_d by his apparent disregard the remainder of Torah law. He calls the Bible “the Old Testament” – a clear message that he acknowledges a “New Testament” – Judaism does not have such a text and to rename our holy canon based on another faith is heresy.
