Don’t follow the crowd – Exodus 23

Some things just stand out more after reading them again, a few times. In Exodus 23, the laws of the covenant are being put down. One of these is in verse 2: 2 “Do not follow the crowd in doing wrong. When you give testimony in a lawsuit, do not pervert justice by siding with the crowd

Exodus 20 on Altars

I read through a few chapters of Exodus last night including chapter 20 which covers altars, and then the section in chapter 27 covering the instructions for how the altar in the tabernacle should look. There is a pretty stark contrast between the two descriptions. Exodus 20:24-26 (NIV) 24 “‘Make an altar of earth for me and

When did Zipporah, Gershom and Eliezer leave?

I’ve been reading through Exodus again, and as always, new things stood out to me. One of them is in Exodus 4 and 18. Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law is visiting the Israelites in the desert after they have left Egypt. It isn’t just him though, he has brought Moses’ wife and sons with him. In Exodus

What Is The Most Important Commandment?

Mark 12:28-34 is one of my favourite examples of Jesus outwitting the questions of the priests, pharisees, teachers etc that were designed to trap or trick him. 28One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments,

Leviticus Chapter 13 to 27

This section of Leviticus continues on from the first 12 chapters in explaining the law and elaborating on it. There are many interesting laws through here, but there were a couple of things I noticed in particular. The first is that Leviticus 18:22 is the first reference in the law that homosexuality is wrong. Sodom

Leviticus Chapter 1 to 11

My Bible is a student study Bible, so it has lots of notes here and there and has a brief introduction to each book of the Bible just giving an overview of it and things like that. At the start of Leviticus, it says that many people lose interest in Leviticus when reading through the

Exodus Chapter 35 to 40

This last part of Exodus largely covers God’s requirements of the tabernacle and His instructions on how it should be set up. By and large, the things covered here are things I have gone over before, but there were a few little things here and there that I found quite interesting. Chapter 35 starts off

Exodus Chapter 18 to 34 (Ten Commandments)

This part of Exodus is largely based around God’s Ten Commandments, and has some really good life advice in general. In chapter 18, Jethro, Moses’ father in law and the priest of Midian comes to visit after hearing everything that God is doing with the Israelites. In verses 13 to 26, after seeing how Moses

Exodus Chapters 1 to 17

Exodus is an interesting book to read. As it’s name suggests, the main focus of the first half is on the oppression and the Israelites exodus of Egypt. It then covers the ten commandments, and then almost all of the second half is focused entirely on the development of the tabernacle. I didn’t end up
