Lesson #13 - The Book And The Blood - Ex. 24

Series: God's Man Moses - Israel's Exodus From Egypt


The Book And The Blood / Exodus 24

Ascending & Descending / Vss.1-8

1. Who were invited by God through Moses to ascend the mountain of the Lord? – vss.1-2

 Who was Aaron? … Who were Nadab and Abihu? … Who were the seventy elders? – cf. Num.16:11

You shall worship at a distance … Moses alone, however, shall come near to the Lord

  Why were these others invited but not allowed to “draw near”?

2. After Moses descended the mountain what happened? – vss.3-8

  God’s words are recounted & transcribed …   The people pledge their fidelity …

  Moses builds an altar with twelve pillars (one for each of the tribes) …   Sacrifices are offered …

  The blood of the bulls (sacrifices) is sprinkled (half on the offering and half on the people).

  The book of the covenant is read aloud and all the people avow faithfulness.

All that the Lord has spoken we will do, and we will be obedient.

  The book of the covenant is sealed with the blood of the covenant.
