    They said to Moses and Aaron, “you have gone too far! Everyone in the entire community is holy and the Lord is among them. Why then do you exalt yourselves above the Lord’s assembly” (v. 3). Moses took their concerns to God and God said he would show whom, among the Levites, he had chosen to minister before Him (v. 16-30). God picked Aaron subsequently; the families and possessions of Korah were swallowed into the earth (v. 31-33). In verse 35 the Lord judge the 250 others and consumed them…

    In Exodus 33:12-16, a new side of Moses is visible where he is actively accepting his duty to be the mediator between God and His people. There is also a shift in Moses’ and God’s interaction. Moses begins taking more control of the conversation by professing his thoughts on the Israelites and how they should be lead. This shift extends to the fact that Moses is not just God’s hand picked spokesman to the people, but is now his faithful companion. In the beginning of this excerpt, Moses…

    So what was God’s response to Moses and Aaron’s actions taken? 3. Num 20:12 Then the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, “Because you did not believe Me, to hallow (to sanctify) Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them.”Moses struck the rock instead of speaking to the rock, as being a case of his unbelief. Moses apparently had a problem with speaking to an inanimate (lifeless or non living) object and expecting…

    mother’s silver. For that matter, all characters in the story have morality issues. “The narrator presents only undesirable characters, whose words and deeds complement each other.” Micah steals the silver, his mother allows the returned silver to be formed into an idol, and the Levite accepts Micah’s worship practices of the LORD and idols. The initial amount of silver taken was eleven hundred. Upon its return Micah’s mother consecrates the silver to the LORD. This would lead readers to…

    artifacts from that time period is a very hard task. So just because they haven’t found any doesn’t mean it’s not out there. Some people say that for the two million Hebrews to have this march from Egypt their would have to be evidence left behind. The first biblical mention of the Exodus, the Song of Miriam, which is the oldest text in the bible, never mentions how many people were involved. All it states is that there was a group, referred to as a people. It never refers to a whole…

    We can begin by analyzing the Old Testament Mosaic Laws on tithing, which calls the Israelites to bring a tenth of their harvest and livestock to the temples, which are found in the books of Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. As we examine Numbers 18:8-32, we see how tithes were to be made, and where they would go to. We see how the Levites and the priests got their income from the the tithes and sacrifices of the other tribes. Levites were to receive their income from the tithes of other…

    beachfront property in the Sahara. Argument: It says in Malachi that if we do not bring our tithes to the storehouse that we will receive curses, not blessings. If we bring our tithes, our cups will run over. Counter: The verses in Malachi were written to the priests who were stealing from God. Food was tithed every three years to the Levites according to the tradition set up in Deuteronomy 14. The Levites, as God's priests, had specific rules to how they were to bless God with this tithe.…

    one can make them believe by force” ( 24). While Moses seemed harsh in forcing the Levites to kill the other 3,000 Israelites, he also secured his loyal subjects (Exodus 32.10). The Levites were literally willing to kill on command in order to serve Moses the prophet of the Lord. Machiavelli would believe that the Levites were acting out of self preservation in some regard whether it was in order to serve the Lord or out of fear of losing their lives, as this gruesome mass murder was clearly not…

    all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.” To explain the Law, Jesus tells a story about a Jewish man travelling from Jerusalem to Jericho, a journey his audience may have made themselves. ““A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell into the hands of robbers, who stripped him, beat him, and went away, leaving him half dead. 31 Now by chance a priest was going down that road; and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32 So likewise a Levite, when he came to the place…
