From the November 1899 issue of The Christian Science Journal

In the Journal for April and May, 1894, we published editorially some comments on the Ten Commandments, and briefly showed the unmistakable connection between them and the Sermon on the Mount, and further, that our text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," was based on them and re-affirmed their teaching.

We have had repeated requests to publish these articles again, either in pamphlet form or otherwise. In compliance with these requests we have concluded to publish in this number a condensation of them, making them one, trusting that this may meet the approval of the friends calling for their re-publication.

The Mosaic Decalogue has lost none of its significance by lapse of time. It means as much to-day as it ever meant. It was written for time and for eternity. There is deep significance in the fact of its having been written on tablets of stone. This symbolizes its permanency and endless duration. It was written for all mankind, not simply for the Children of Israel.
