In last weeks’ reading of the Hebrew scriptures…

dirtyrag-e1357140003254So what I’m seeing in Numbers and Leviticus is a God who is inordinately devoted to detail — from the many and varied ways an  unclean person (pretty much, any person with any discharge, and my apologies if you’re reading this over a meal) can be punished/shunned to precisely how to cover the Ark of the Covenant for moving.

(As a reminder, I, the fundamentalist with Mad Bible Skills, have started re-reading the Bible, from Gen. 1, using a guide I loaded onto my phone. Obviously, people read the Bible and find different things. Here’s what I found last week:)

I have to admit I’m finding it a hard slog to read this portion, as I knew I would. This ranks right down there with the “begats,” but I am seeking to use my mad concentration skills and stay on each verse. But the blue cloth with the fine leather with the red cloth? It’s hard.

  1. What guide are you using?

    • Just something I downloaded offa the Interwebs.It offers no commentary and serves up 3-4 chapters a day. It’s a pace I can keep up with, so far.
