Right now I’m in a stretch of several Bible chapters that say nothing more than instructions on how to build stuff. I’m sorry, but remember I didn’t write this book! 🙂 I could skip these chapters, but it my goal to write about EVERY chapter in the Bible. Regardless of how boring and meaningless the chapter is, I will have, at the very least, a short statement on it.
“They built the altar of burnt offering of acacia wood, three cubits high; it was square, five cubits long and five cubits wide.” – Exodus 38:1
That does it for Exodus 38. More instructions on building stuff, including an altar, a washbasin, and a courtyard, followed by a list of materials used. Do the Israelites really need instructions on how to build a washbasin? God ignores suffering people over and over, but makes sure He has time to send down instructions on how to build a washbasin?
