SERMONS #37 – Exodus Ends but the Exodus Doesn’t (2/6/23)

30:36 – The Promised Land is still a ways off when Moses types “30” or “THE END” at the bottom of last page of the Book of Exodus. Who knew?? No doubt a sequel is in the works. Why was there was so much repetition in the early books of the Bible? What language were the stone tablets written in? Were there 603,550 adult male Israelites or were there six hundred squad leaders commanding 3,550 fighting men? What do Ray Bradbury, Devo and Weird Al Yankovic have to do with anything we’re talking about? Tune in and Dave in Kentucky will tell you, or at least tell you what he thinks about it. Also: a preview of what comes next in the series (hint: it ain’t Leviticus) including some tasty classical accordion music. (Baroque, actually.)
