Exodus – Chapter 25: Offerings for the Tabernacle

Moses (and maybe others) met God on top of the mountain in Exodus 24 and God gave Moses the laws written on tablets.  Exodus 25 is…well…BORING!  It is simply a bunch of instructions by God to Moses on how to build stuff.  I’ll say a couple of things, but I won’t further bore you with the details.

“Have them make an ark of acacia wood—two and a half cubits long, a cubit and a half wide, and a cubit and a half high.” – Exodus 25:10

A cubit 45.72 cm in case you are looking for knowledge you’ll never use.  🙂

God instructs the Israelites to build an ark, a table, and a lampstand.  Um…ok.  And with that, I’m going to be done with this chapter.  Here’s my hypothesis.  The authors of the Bible, and the early church leaders wanted to command the people.  They wanted the people to fear in order to control them.  No one wants to read the Bible.  Look at it!  It’s big and boring.  I think the authors and church leaders threw in a bunch of boring stuff to insure the people would never read the Bible and learn it’s a bunch of nonsense!  What do you think?  🙂
