Cover to Cover Challenge 2017 (Day 17)Bible Reading Challenge . Family . Home Schooling
Our family finished reading the book of Exodus, and moved into Leviticus. Some interesting things to notice about the book of Exodus.
The first 19 chapters of Exodus are the exciting adventure of YHVH God leading Moses to bring His children out of Egypt to Mount Sinai. The miracles and signs of YHVH are amazing, and YHVH gives His people the first feast as a annual memorial, Passover.
After those exciting chapters, comes the first record of God’s laws for how He expects His people to live. Exodus chapter 20 is a summary of God’s commandments for His people. The Ten Commandments.
What a great gift He gives His people by clearly telling them what His expectations are.
The rest of the book of Exodus is a lot of instructions on how to prepare themselves, the priest, and the tabernacle to worship Him. YHVH God takes chapters 21-40 to clearly instruct and prepare His people to worship Him. The cool thing about these passages is that the writer, Moses, is making it very, very clear what YHVH God instructed, and then he makes it very, very clear that the people did exactly as they were told. Moses did not want anyone to doubt if they obeyed completely. He gave every detail of every instruction, and he gave every detail of how the people followed them.
The book of Exodus concludes with a finished tabernacle ready to be used to worship YHVH God. The next book, Leviticus picks up where Exodus ends. It begins with telling Moses how to teach the people how to worship God by bringing sacrifices to Him.
It can seem like these books of the Bible should be read quickly or skipped, since they don’t really apply to us now, right? But the truth is each of these instructions and the details of them are a beautiful picture of God’s love for us, His promise to us, and how we can love and obey Him.
Keep reading, keep discovering new exciting truths about God.

Things to know as you visit our site
We are Bible believing, scripture only people. We love to learn about the Hebrew roots of our faith. We believe it is important to not add or subtract from the Divine Word of God. The compiled scriptures that agree with one another and have no contradiction is the 66 books of what is commonly referred to as the Christian Bible, or the Holy Bible.
These writings were originally written by men inspired by God. They were written in the language of the writers and readers of the original documents. Many of the original documents have been lost, but God’s Word is eternal and remains. Therefore, it is important to us to study, learn, and consider the culture, history, and language of the original writers of the scriptures.
In our studies we have learned that the true name of God is Yehovah, and His son, our Messiah, is named Yeshua. Therefore, as you read our posts we will use the Hebrew names of God and our Messiah.
