Through the Bible in a Year: Exodus 21-24

This week’s Bible reading is Exodus 21-40, 4 chapters a day. We’ll do Leviticus the following week.

Overall year’s plan is here.

This Week Is Readers Week!

We’ve covered a lot in these first four weeks through the Bible, and I’ve gotten great feedback and input from y’all. Now I need some space to rest. I believe a week will let me get caught up.

You can tell how much I need the rest by the fact I scheduled this post a day early, forgetting today is Sunday! This is Monday’s post, which is okay, it will be there on Monday.

You have two (and many more) answers for yourselves:

  • Ask questions in the comments about today’s reading.</li
  • Answer other people’s questions when you see them

And I will pitch into the discussions as I am able, though I am going to be working on the following week’s blogs already.

Don’t give up on the Bible reading! That is the point, to make the Scriptures comfortable to understand (though once you understand they provide their own discomfort), so that you become practiced at loving all the Words of God, digging deeper into them, and obeying them.

So "pay it forward"; share your thoughts with one another.

I’ll schedule a post with with the right Bible reading each day of the week so you can keep your Q&A among one another separated on the right days.

About Paul Pavao

I am married, the father of six, and currently the grandfather of two. I run a business, live in a Christian community, teach, and I am learning to disciple others better than I have ever been able to before. I believe God has gifted me to restore proper foundations to the Christian faith. In order to ensure that I do not become a heretic, I read the early church fathers from the second and third centuries. They were around when all the churches founded by the apostles were in unity. I also try to stay honest and open. I argue and discuss these foundational doctrines with others to make sure my teaching really lines up with Scripture. I am encouraged by the fact that the several missionaries and pastors that I know well and admire as holy men love the things I teach. I hope you will be encouraged too. I am indeed tearing up old foundations created by tradition in order to re-establish the foundations found in Scripture and lived on by the churches during their 300 years of unity.

    Wow! this bible study has been so good, I have loved your commentary Shammah! In fact I spent the afternoon (since I was ‘resting’ from the cold /flu thing I got this weekend:/) just delving in your teaching and the links you put up. jWell I have one question/observation for you (or whoever comments back?) Exodus 24:9 When Moses goes up with Arron and the elders in verse 10 it says ‘and they saw the God of Israel’. Then goes on to describe Him. This seems different than the other appearings of Jesus, and the name is different. Is Jesus refered to as the God of Israel. I always thought that this was God (the Father), but ‘no man has ever seen Him’?

    • Shammah says:

      It does sound different. From what I read in the early writings, though, their impression of God the Father is that he not only has not been seen, but cannot be seen. Thus every appearance of God on earth had to be the Word of God, not the Father, who is invisible, and fills all things.

      The apostles seem to agree when I think of a passage like Colossians 1:15, where the KJV says, “[Jesus] is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over every creature.”
