Book of Exodous

In Exodous, God gives the Ten Commandments to his people. These Ten Commandments is yet another indicator of God's personality and his attitudes. He does not want people to follow and see him as an object like many great worriers who are strong and has good fighting skills like Achilles in the Iliad.

In the book of Exodous, God gets extremely angry when he sees Israelites prey to another form of God. When people see the Ten Commandment, they can realize that God's most importance was to make sure that his chosen people would not believe in another form of God (Exodous 20). It was more important than murdering people or stealing other's possession. Israelites learned from their mistakes that God is loving, forgiving and patient, but not in this case.
