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

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

Luke 12 – The Servants

I enjoy reading Luke, in many places he has bits of information that help explain things from the other gospels. In Luke 12 for example, there is one section that is paralleled in both Matthew and Mark (though more closely in Matthew), and there is one verse in Luke that is not in the other

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,

Why A Star?

I started reading through the book of Matthew again recently, and in Matthew 2, it talks about the three wise men (or magi in some translations) that came from the East. Something I’ve heard and read many times, but I got to thinking, why was it a star? 1Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem

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

Left Behind?

The concept of the rapture is an interesting one. It is Biblically based, but the popularised concept in the “Left Behind” series, isn’t really Biblically correct at all. If anything, it’s backwards. I’ve been studying this a bit, and the key things to the rapture concept seem to me to be, the saved will be

Character Comparison

Recently I’ve been listening to a series of prophecy seminars presented by Pr David Asscherick. They’re quite interesting studies, I just thought I would share a few verses with you though that he pointed out which compare the characters of Christ and Satan, so clearly. Have a look at Isaiah 14:12-14: 12How art thou fallen

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,
