    Why did the 10 commandments need to be put on TWO Tablets.

      Because they had a headache AND they didn't want to get pregnant.

      Because they were just coming out of their caves from the stone age, back then. Kind of like coming out of the closet, today and paper had not been invented well enough.

      Then, the smartest man in the cave, created religion.

        The second smartest created lawyers
        The third smartest created politicians out of some of the lawyers.

      Perhaps they were too heavy to carry down the mountain?

        That is surely a valid answer, but I was thinking more font size to put it all on one tablet.

        Thanks

      The reason the 10 Commandments were on two tablets is because the first four commandments deal with our relationship with God, the other six have to do with our relationship with one another. :-)

    Because the tablets they were written on was not big enough to be placed on one. Just my thought. That is how it looked in the movie, " The Ten Commandments. smile

    Originally there were 15 on 3 tablets according to a Mel Brooks documentary I saw years ago.

    Think about it, you can be funnier.

    Take your time, then please try again.

    They were made big and in two pieces, so they would be harder to steal.

      Thou shall, not steal

      Just in cause, nail down those huge stone tablets anyways and kill any one who tries.

      Wow’s two sins don't not make a righteous

          There is no contradiction in the bible, just many two face type people and 7 headed dragons running around.

    How about:  Kill someone by bludgeoning them with one of the tablets, steal the other tablet, use the name of "the lord/thy God" in vain when doing in it; and say nasty things about your mother and father as you run away to find a married honey you've been coveting, who is better your than your spouse; and then say a prayer to the God of houses to request that something terrible happen to your neighbor (who, by the way, you have slandered left and right just so everyone would hate him and maybe bludgeon him with the tablet you left at the crime scene) so you can have his house and stuff.  (Oh - and do all this on a Sunday, of course   smile  ).

    There was actually three tablets with 15 commandments until Moses droped one and settled for 10 commandments.

      Please credit me as a source or I will report you for plagiarism.  I'm not sure what the punishment is, but I bet it's pretty cruel and unusual.

    I googled the 15 commandments and low and behold -- there were originally 15.

    This is funny, or at least I thought so...
