In this episode Veronica and Erika dig into Exodus 24 and God making a covenant with Moses and the people. They examine the boundaries God placed around the mountain and how you see that repeated in Tabernacle and Temple. They also explain table fellowship, Moses and Joshua’s relationship, and the significance of two tablets.
Veronica mentions Lois Tverberg. Her website is www.ourrabbi.jesus.com – Our Rabbi Jesus
Veronica also mentioned Ray Vander Laan.
Questions to Consider:
How did the boundaries around the mountain relate to the restrictions and blessings for the individual?
What did you learn about table fellowship? How could this understanding of table fellowship affect the way you view meals or communion?
What connections do we see here that relate back to Creation?
What is the significance of Moses having two tablets and what does that tell us about Moses’ relationship with God and God’s view of Moses?
