Bonus: Episode 58

There's a lot to explore here: Trumpets, ancient shaving, how to properly wave and/or heave offer... did we mention ancient shaving? It sounds hardcore.

It's action time! (ok, maybe just a little bit) Some things happen, camps are moved, leaders are named, clouds... happen?

We don’t want to spoil it be prepare yourself to learn this particular bit of information VERY WELL.

047: Leviticus 11-13

What the hoof is going on here? We are about to cover clean vs unclean animals to eat. Such strong and powerful words against god's great creatures. Specifically, any kind of Raven is a complete abomination! Then we move on to fountains of blood with childbirth, graphically described skin diseases and then we close it down in a big way with defiling mold. Say what?!

046: Leviticus 8-10

Moses ornates Aaron and his sons. We get some visuals of Moses getting them all fancy as Yaweh commanded. Don't worry it gets weirder. Blood is about to get spread all over the place, so awkward stacking of things and then wave all that around as an offering at the end of which Aaron and his sons had to chill for 7 days (and they did). Then we are blessed with some more really graphic offerings, crazy fire death along with a few opportunities to drink.

043: Exodus 39-40

We've made it to the end of Exodus! Finally!!! Oops, we mean huzzah! To end this fairly long repetative book of the bible, we start by recapping the garments that Aaron is going to wear. In the final chapter, we get the exact instructions on how to put all these pieces together. Moses appears to be the only one constructing this bad boy, but he does seem to have that certain glow, so it makes sense. And there you have it, Exodus is over and we head on to the next Book - Leviticus.

041: Exodus 33-35

So no one gets to see God's face, not even Moses without being destroyed? Epic! God also calls Moses out on breaking the first tablets that were made on Mount Sinai and makes a second set. We kind of get the impression that God is kind of acting like a single parent in which he plays multiple parenting roles for his children on earth. Whoa, deep! Also, for the record, this part of the Bible seems like total Déjà vu Groundhog day style. We've definitely heard a lot of this before but it clearly bares repeating since it's in the bible twice in Exodus.

040: Exodus 30-32

This could quite possibly be the smelliest of chapters we've read thus far. Bring on the fancy incense alter blueprints, an ancient census and annointing oil! Kudos to the written word giving very precise and detailed instructions. Let's also not forget the Sabbath! We learn that we must observe it or die. No big deal! Near the end of this chapter we learn that Moses & Yaweh both have major anger issues. The 10 Commandment Tablets finally make their appearance, but they don't last long. Lasty, Aaron gives us an excuse that rivals "the dog ate my homework" for the reason why the golden calf idol was created. Just wow!
