“No, LORD!”

I cringe a bit as I type the title for this entry. Is “No, LORD” even a thing? Many times, I have heard teaching that such a response is an oxymoron. “No” and “LORD” just don’t go together. Most often … Continue reading

Aaron Shall Bear

Reading in Exodus this morning. And what catches my attention, and imagination, is a phrase repeated 4 times in the instructions concerning the priest’s garments. The uniform to be worn by Aaron was, to say the least, pretty elaborate. And, … Continue reading

One commentator calls it a “tantalizing tidbit,” and indeed it is. Don’t think I ever noticed it before. Not surprising since it’s buried in that part of Exodus that repeats the details of the construction of the different objects which … Continue reading
