Weeks 16 & 17: The Desert, the Ark, and the Golden Calf

Reading

Exodus 25–40 (Wandering in the desert; the Ten Commandments; the Golden Calf)

Questions

  • How do you know if something is a false idol?  
  • Why a golden calf?

KEY PASSAGE

Exodus 32:9–10

“Yahweh said to Moses, ‘I have seen these people, and
behold, they are a stiff-necked people. Now therefore
leave me alone, that my wrath may burn hot against
them, and that I may consume them; and I will make of
you a great nation.’”

Disclaimer: Lucifer was on vacation for these weeks, so the discussions will remain ephemeral evermore because he didn’t take real notes! Oops!

With this, however, we are taking a huge leap… to the New Testament!


Takeaways:

The Hebrew Bible God has really specific desires. And also knows a lot about carpentry!
