Imagine you were tasked with creating rules for a nation or a civilization and could only choose ten. Which would you choose?

You’d be hard-pressed to find a better list than the Ten Commandments. As Dennis Prager says, “No Document in world history so changed the world for the better as did the Ten Commandments.”

In a new video series, Prager University clarifies what the Ten Commandments means and explains why they are as relevant as ever to our society.

Here are all ten of the five minute videos:

1. I Am the Lord Your God

2. No Other Gods

3. Do Not Misuse God’s Name

4. Remember the Sabbath

5. Honor Your Father and Mother

6. Do Not Murder

7. Do Not Commit Adultery

8. Do Not Steal

9. Do Not Bear False Witness

10. Do Not Covet
