SERMONS #55 – Fog Machines & Floodlights (6/27/23)

30:02 – An active volcano in the distance, which appeared as a pillar of smoke in the daytime and a pillar of fire at night, had previously led the Israelites to Mt. Sinai, where more smoke and fire accompanied the landing of a Yahwelian ship carrying a very important personage with a very important legal document. What better way to lead the Israelites through the wilderness than by artificially producing the symbols that they were already accustomed to following? Also: Passover, bugle calls, manna, food cravings, and fire-of-Yahweh overreactions. Bonus question: Are Jabal al-Lawz and Jabal Maqla the Biblical Mt. Horeb and Mt. Sinai?

Show art: “The Tabernacle in the Wilderness” by the illustrator(s) of the 1890 Holman Bible, Public Domain.

Theme music: Unknown hymn used as the theme music for Father Coughlin’s radio show in the 1930s, Public Domain, performed by Dave in Kentucky (2021), Public Domain Dedication.
