I would like to start a Bible challenge. Read a chapter a day from the Bible and leave a sentance on your blog on what you think, or what you didn’t understand, or how you can use this chapter in your life or whatever you choose to write about this passage. Then Google ”Bible challenge” and the day and comment on others comments. We can become stronger as a community if we are lifting each other up.
I thought about starting in Genesis, but I am in Numbers so I will take you along on the adventure that I have already started. Thank you for joining me!
Numbers chapter 4
The people have left Egypt and are in the wilderness. God has just directed Moses and Aaron to number some of the house of Levi. Some of the interesting parts to me are that the only people that are being numbered are the ones from the age of thirty years old to fifty years old. These are the people that work in the tabernacle. When someone is under thirty, they are still old enough to work. What are the people who are in their twenties doing? Do they have other jobs but have not graduated to the tabernacle work yet? Another thing that I found to be interesting is how many people work in the tabernacle. Every time that they move, the whole building needed to be taken down and carried to the next resting place and reassembled. Did they have carts to carry all of it? The dishes, spoons and bowls could be carried by people, but would the curtains and the hangings be too big for a person to carry all day?
Did anyone else have any other thoughts or questions?
