#150 ⚖️ Exodus 23 Lord's Festivals 🧑🌾 🥖🌾🌻🍂✨
This podcast covers the last of God's laws of justice and mercy. God also established his festivals, which the Israelites were to do a few times a year and offer their first fruits to the Lord. We covered many topics to get sidetracked as we often do, but it is very useful information on the current events and how they relate to what we are reading in Exodus.
Exodus 23: The laws given to the Israelites, focused on justice, worship, and social responsibility. God provided the importance of truthful testimony and fairness in legal matters. It included regulations concerning care for one's enemies, assistance to those in need, and impartiality in judgments. Hod also laid out best agricultural farming practices, including the Sabbath year and the Festival of Unleavened Bread. The Israelites were instructed to celebrate three annual pilgrimage festivals: 1) Passover, 2) the Festival of Weeks, and 3) the Festival of Ingathering. The chapter concludes with a promise of divine guidance and protection as the Israelites enter the Promised Land.
Exodus 24 marks a significant moment in the covenantal relationship between God and the Israelites. After hearing the laws, the people expressed their commitment to obey by stating, "All the words that the Lord has spoken we will do." Moses then wrote down the laws and built an altar at the base of Mount Sinai. Young men offered burnt and fellowship offerings, and Moses sprinkled blood on the people, symbolizing the covenant's ratification. Moses and some elders ascend the mountain, where they have a vision of God. Moses remains on the mountain for 40 days and nights.
Overall, Exodus 23-24 outlines a range of laws covering justice, worship, and social responsibility. The purpose of such laws was to establish integrity, fairness, justice, and obedience to divine commands. The people once again ratified the covenant, solidifying the commitment of the Israelites to follow God's laws.
