Exodus – Chapter 28: The Priestly Garments

God told the Israelites how to build more stuff in Exodus 27.  Exodus 28 is titled “The Priestly Garments” so maybe God will tell the Israelites how to dress!

“Make sacred garments for your brother Aaron to give him dignity and honor.” – Exodus 28:2

Okay, so maybe God isn’t telling everyone how to dress, just Aaron.

“Make the ephod of gold, and of blue, purple and scarlet yarn, and of finely twisted linen—the work of skilled hands.” – Exodus 28:6

If you’re not sure what an ephod is, join the club.  I had to look it up.  It’s “a sleeveless garment worn by Jewish priests.”  I guess God wants to show off the ‘guns’.  🙂  Exodus 28 continues on how to make other garments. Again, so much on how to make things and so little on how to live good lives.

Coming Soon:  Exodus – Chapter 29:  Consecration of the Priests

  1. Judging by the pitiful amount of good material in a lot of the Exodus chapters, I think I am going to have some trouble keeping my ‘New Bible’ series interesting!

    Hopefully the later chapters will be better!
