(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:)
Moses was continually being told by God to rein in the Israelites, who couldn’t seem to stay faithful, despite God having brought them out of slavery in Egypt. In fact, God gets so angry at the group that they are told they won’t see the promised land.
Honestly, the Israelites don’t come off as very grown up. I look forward to the Book of Deuteronomy, where at least we make it to the Promised Land. I feel I have earned it.
