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

A New Nation Through Moses? Deuteronomy 9

I’ve been reading through the books of Moses again, and mot recently, Deuteronomy. I was reading through chapter 9 this morning and noticed something that has never really clicked in my mind before. In Deuteronomy 9:13-14, after the Israelites make the golden calf while Moses has been on the mountain talking to God, God is

Romans, Grace, Faith, Law

I hear Christians referred to a lot as New Testament Christians, but what does that actually mean? Christians didn’t exist prior to the New Testament, before the New Testament there were no Christians, Christians only came into existance after Christ came to earth, prior to that there were no Christians, or I guess you could

Deuteronomy Chapter 2

Deuteronomy I found to be an extremely emotional and moving book, looking at how far the Israelites have come since leaving Horeb, reiterating and reinforcing the law, and ending with Moses’ death. It consists of a number of heartfelt speeches given to the Israelites by Moses, and it gives some insight into some things I

Numbers

Numbers is quite interesting, like Leviticus it delves a lot into the laws outlined, but rather than just listing and explaining them, it uses situations that arise in the Israelites journey to show the laws and how they affect the people of Israel. There were a few sections in it that I found quite interesting,

Numbers Chapter 1

I found Numbers a really interesting book to read, it elaborates on and explains the law established in Leviticus with real examples. It also provides general information and statistics on the people of Israel, which I thought was interesting too. The first chapter of Numbers is entirely a census that God told Moses to take

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
