The Number 10

After I wrote the Number 13 blog someone asked about the number 10. Things happened and I lost the comment without replying. So here is an answer.

Ten is a complete number; it shares that title with several other numbers according to my Bible dictionary. That may be why there were ten specific commands written on Moses’ tablets.  It is also a natural number – ten fingers. Now if you put those two ideas together it is a great training aid; one command for each finger.

The other number tens that I always think of are in the Book of Revelations and are connected with the Beast-ten horns/kings in Revelation 17:10.
