I thought it was supposed to be about moral rules, like not kill or steal or rape and such, but now I find it's very different. First, god gives moses tablets of stone on which the ten commandments are written. Moses smashes them. So, then god gives the exact same ten commandments to Moses again, and it turns out that they're all about not worshipping other gods, several are about unleavened (?) bread, there's something about sacrificing firstborn male sheeps and oxes to god (but not donkeys ?? or break their necks ?? wtf), not working on sunday, and all manner of nonsense, but not one of these commandments are actually important moral commandments, like don't kill or steal and so on. Could someone explain this to me, because I'm at a loss here.
