Question: I understand that it has been determined that there are 613 commandments in the Old Testament. What I am curious about is about the 10 commandments that almost everyone knows about. Are they essentially subject headers that the other commandments would be filed under? Could they be considered, i.e. the 613 other commandments, sub-points of the 10?
Answer: You are quite correct. The 10 Commandments are really 10 categories.
