Overview of Deuteronomy

Deuteronomy means ‘second law’, but it is not a second giving of the law, but a reminder. It is the fifth book of the Bible, and the last of the books of Moses. The number 5 speaks of human responsibility. The wilderness is reviewed and instructions and directions are given in relation to the promisedContinue reading “Overview of Deuteronomy”

Overview of Numbers

Numbers is the fourth book of the Bible as well as in the books of Moses, and the number 4 is the number of the earth. On the fourth day the material things were created. There are four earthly kingdoms mentioned in Daniel. This is also the “wilderness” book. The wilderness is a picture ofContinue reading “Overview of Numbers”

Overview of Leviticus

The book of Leviticus can be very easily misunderstood if it is read, or not read, for the wrong reasons. Many of us, and I fall into this, upon finishing Genesis and struggling to get through the second half of Exodus, tend to skip Leviticus because at first glance it is just about a setContinue reading “Overview of Leviticus”

The names of these books have meanings, and the meanings will help unravel the reason as to why they are in this particular order, why Genesis is first, thenContinue reading “Genesis to Deuteronomy”

Tabernacle Divisions

This is an attempted division of the Tabernacle, found in Exodus 25-30 as per the instructions that God gave to Moses when he was on the mountain for 40 days. I used the aid of respected writers/commentators, along with clear sections/divisions in the Bible, the Word of God. This is to encourage a study ofContinue reading “Tabernacle Divisions”

Thoughts on Enoch

There is not a lot mentioned in the Bible about Enoch, but what is mentioned in just a few parts of the Word of God is striking. Enoch did not have such a large biography like Abraham or Joseph, but what is mentioned about him is sufficient to say that he walked with God, pleasedContinue reading “Thoughts on Enoch”

Leviticus 1
