    Jews have 613 "commandments"---which they call mitzvot--the 10 are included....

    It is good to know what others hold sacred...it helps us increase understanding and compassion. But it is better to know from a person who practices their beliefs...so knowing Buddhism from a Buddhist or Judaism from a Jew, will give you deeper insights and knowledge.

    probably more like twitter...the Quran might be more like a blog (God's blog) There is not much "prophesy" (foretelling future) in the Quran. There is stuff about heaven and hell and judgement day and stuff---does that fall into the prophesy category? Much of the Quran is advice about what one should or should not do...some examples are--

    Do not gossip (49:12)
    Do not defame others (49:11)
    Greet each other (4:86)
    Do not be contemptuous or arrogant (31:18)
    If misconduct occurs correct yourself expediently (3:134)
    Do not be a hypocrite (3:16)
    .....and many more such advice on etiquette and ethics....on a range of subjects from marriage, family, economics, law, governance...etc....

    The Catholic Church has something called Catechism (?) not sure what it is but it seems to give advice on a range of subjects from prayers to just war to interfaith relations and such....?.....

    why do Christians have only 10 commandments? or do they have more elsewhere under a different label? How do Christians know when and how to pray or do other rituals such as lent or whatever?

    The main difference between Christians observing the 10 commandments and the Pharisees, Saducees, and Essines observing the 10 commandments is the reason for the observation.

    The Pharisees, Saducees, and Essines do it because they feel an obligation to do it. Christians, on the other hand, do it because we love all humanity. Our love for humanity compels us to abide by the 10 commandments. That's why Jesus said I give you a new law. Love your God with all of your heart and love your neighbor as yourself. All other commandments are based on this love.

    Remember, what Christians consider Easter is also the Jewish Passover feast. So we compare our calendar with the Jewish calendar.

    Christians pray when our hearts are compelled to pray. This is in reference to the parable of the Good Samaritan. By the way, not all Christians observe Lent.
