In the second movement of Exodus, Moses walks straight into God’s fiery presence on Mount Sinai without fear. But by the end of the scroll, he can’t enter God’s presence. What changed? Right after confirming their covenant with Yahweh, Israel turns around and commits idolatry by making and worshiping a golden calf. It’s a choice that ruptures their relationship with Yahweh and even their connection to Moses. In this episode, join Jon and Tim as they explore the final portion of the third movement of Exodus.View full show notes from this episode →Timestamps Part one (00:00-12:00)Part two (12:00-28:45)Part three (28:45-51:42)Referenced ResourcesInterested in more?

Why does God seem to care so much about the furniture within the tabernacle? The instructions for the tabernacle furniture are about far more than aesthetics. They were means of dealing with Israel’s moral brokenness, they served as reminders of Eden, and they were designed to form Israel into a people of perpetual surrender. In this episode, join Tim and Jon as they continue to trace the theme of the temple in the third movement of Exodus.View full show notes from this episode →Timestamps Part one (00:00-16:45)Part two (16:45-39:30)Part three (39:30-48:00)Part four (48:00-1:00:30)Referenced ResourcesThe Literary Structure of the Old Testament: A Commentary on Genesis-Malachi, David A.

You may have heard that God’s holiness keeps him from getting close to sinful humanity, but in the Bible we see God regularly doing the opposite, drawing near to dwell with human beings. We encounter this reality again and again, including in a surprising place—the tabernacle blueprints. In this episode, join Jon and Tim as they walk through the opening act of the third movement of Exodus and explore the relationship between the tabernacle, the garden of Eden, unconditional love, and eternal life.View full show notes from this episode →Timestamps Part one (00:00-13:00)Part two (13:00-45:45)Part three (45:45-1:03:30)Part four (1:03:30-1:16:12)Referenced ResourcesPrayer of Saint IgnatiusInterested in more?

We often think of the ten commandments as a list of dos and don’ts—the things you need to know to make God happy. But is that what they’re really about? In this episode, join Tim and Jon as they take a deep dive into the ten commandments, and find out why they’re far less about simulating moral perfection than they are about preserving proper worship of Yahweh and the shared dignity of humans as his image bearers.View full show notes from this episode →Timestamps Part one (00:00-11:00)Part two (11:00-28:50)Part three (28:50-1:02:00)Part four (1:02:00-1:10:11)Referenced ResourcesBearing God's Name: Why Sinai Still Matters, Carmen Joy ImesCowboy Ten CommandmentsInterested in more?

Mount Sinai is the famous spot where Yahweh gives Moses the ten commandments—and the location where most of Exodus, all of Leviticus, and the first ten chapters of Numbers take place. When Israel first arrives at Sinai, they fail yet another test and try to get Moses to pass it for them. In this episode, join Tim and Jon as they explore Yahweh’s fiery presence, the test at Sinai, and the question of Israel’s national identity: will they be the kingdom of priests Yahweh intends?View full show notes from this episode →Timestamps Part one (00:00-11:30)Part two (11:30-21:30)Part three (21:30-43:00)Part four (43:00-1:02:37)Referenced ResourcesThe Pentateuch as Narrative: A Biblical-Theological Commentary, John H.

The nation of Israel seems to go from one life-threatening situation to another in the Exodus scroll. From slavery in Egypt to being cornered between a hostile army and a vast body of water, Israel’s God has delivered them from everything so far. Now in the wilderness, they face a series of three tests. Will they trust Yahweh to deliver them again? In this episode, Tim and Jon explore Israel’s testing in the wilderness.View full show notes from this episode →Timestamps Part one (00:00-9:05)Part two (9:05-25:45)Part three (25:45-44:10)Part four (44:10-55:30)Part five (55:30-1:11:21)Referenced ResourcesInterested in more?

Nobody likes tests. But the test is a recurring pattern in the biblical story for how God relates to his chosen ones. So are humans just lab rats in a divine experiment, or is there something else going on? Join Tim and Jon as they talk about the theme of the test and the famous account of Israel crossing the Sea of Reeds, as we dive into the second movement of the Exodus scroll.View full show notes from this episode →Timestamps Part one (00:00-14:30)Part two (14:30-20:25)Part three (20:25-33:30)Part four (33:30-49:50)Part five (49:50-1:02:37)Referenced ResourcesDictionary of the Old Testament: Pentateuch (The IVP Bible Dictionary Series), T.

The ten plagues––they’re fascinating, they’re famous, and they sometimes seem overly harsh. Where do they fit in the story of the Bible and the process of God revealing his own name and character? In this episode, Tim and Jon talk about the ten plagues, or ten acts of de-creation, in which Yahweh uses his power over creation to undo his own creation in judgment.

The story of the Israelites’ exodus from Egypt is famous for good reason—a burning bush, a transforming staff, 10 plagues, and the Passover. The exodus is also the story that defines God’s personal name, Yahweh. What does this narrative show us about Yahweh? And why does God care so much that people know his name? In this episode, Tim and Jon talk about God’s character revealed through his acts of deliverance and judgment.View full show notes from this episode →Timestamps Part one (00:00-12:15)Part two (12:15-39:45)Part three (39:45-50:30)Part four (50:30-1:05:45)Referenced ResourcesThe Violence of the Biblical God, L.

God is not a name—it’s a title. In fact, the God of the Bible introduces himself by a specific name in one of the most famous stories in the Bible, the exodus event, when he works through Moses and Aaron to deliver Israel from slavery in Egypt. In this episode, Tim and Jon dive into the first movement of the Exodus scroll and explore the theme of God’s name.View full show notes from this episode →Timestamps Part one (00:00-12:15)Part two (12:15-23:45)Part three (23:45-46:30)Part four (46:30-1:05:28)Referenced ResourcesThe Hebrew and Aramaic Lexicon of the Old Testament, Ludwig Koehler, Walter Baumgartner, and Johann Jakob StammInterested in more?

He lays down his life to save a remnant of God’s people, he brings God’s blessing to all nations, he forgives those who tried to kill him, and his name is … Joseph?

Joseph is one of the Bible’s most famous characters, and in the Genesis scroll, his story is a climactic moment in the theme of exile that spans the whole book.

Throughout the story of the Bible, God singles out different people, like Jacob, to be the conduit of his blessing to all humanity. But from birth, Jacob consistently acts more like the snake from the garden of Eden than a righteous chosen one of God. He lies his way into blessings that God had intended for him all along. So what will God do? In this episode, Tim and Jon discuss the theme of blessing and curse in the life of Jacob.View full show notes from this episode →Timestamps Part one (00:00-17:30)Part two (17:30-28:20)Part three (28:20-45:30)Part four (45:30-1:05:57)Referenced ResourcesInterested in more?

Blessing, testing, failure, success, God’s plan for the nations—you’ll find all these themes woven through the story of the Bible, often accompanied by … trees?

When we think of God’s Spirit, judgment is probably not what comes to mind. But the biblical authors saw God’s Spirit as the one who gave life and took it away—the one who could create, de-create, and recreate.

♥️🎶 what will people think when they know that I'm a Jesus freak 🤗 if there was a bank giving away money, and they just gave you a million dollars, would you tell everyone you knew? 🤔 maybe I should write a short script. Man walks into a bank, asks the teller to withdraw $500 from his account. She clicks a few buttons, and while he's still getting his ID out of his wallet, she hands him $500. A bit confused, he asks her what's going on "You asked for $500 right?" "Well yes but ..." "Do you need more?" "What? But - " "Oh! I'm sorry, you're probably a bit confused. We're giving away free money today" ............... He exits the bank with a load of cash. He walks past people on the sidewalk who just kinda stare. He heads home, pays off some bills, and is very glad he avoided eviction. His landlord was very happy too. The next day ......

"movements" makes me think of scenes in a play. And that makes me ask, what would be the "acts" in the play? The antedeluvian earth, the birth of Israel, and the one that i always wanted to know more about, the eventual decline of the nation of Israel, and the diaspora. But wait, there's more! Amein and amein brothers, I pray that all of us are drawn nearer to God and keep trusting that we are working out our salvation with fear and trembling, by His grace Phil 1:6 ♥️🙌♥️
