The content right now is all mine from Wikibooks and the module I made for it on Wikibooks is public domain. So, if you need more from the Wikibooks module that I made, you can add it yourself without having to use special importing functions. I also made this article public domain for now too.

I think we should add the original text of the Ten Commandments. It looks like here that you are explaining the meaning of each commandment. I think it would help people better understand what the commandments are talking about by putting the original text. Jesus Rules 11:00, 16 May 2007 (PDT)

Unfortunately, we don't have the original text. We could add the Hebrew, when it was finally written down, in the version that has survived to the modern day, but that's not necessarily the same as the original (is in fact likely not exactly identical, though it may be essentially the same). And I don't think adding the Hebrew would help most people. We could add a translation, but which Bible's translation would we pick? The Jade Knight 08:20, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

Sorry to bitch, but is this course-outline or an encyclopedia-page? What are the students to do?

I think as the article/stub stands the title could be changed to reflect this is an explanation of the Catholic Church's interpretation of the Commandments. Most Protestants in U.S. are happy with the ten commandment's actual text from a King James version or derivative bible and the nearest Webster's dictionary. Perhaps the learning comes in from students getting various versions and interpretations entered and discussed in legible format. Mirwin 04:24, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

A sensible idea. The Jade Knight (d'viser) 12:58, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
