Bible Study: Coming Out Of Bondage - Exodus - Chapter 38

Please forgive this rough draft format, as these are my raw study notes on the book of Exodus. I felt a great sense of urgency to publish them rather than waiting until I had the time to pretty them up. Thank you and I pray that God blesses you through this material.


Take a few minutes to savor Exodus Chapter 38. Then return here and ponder the thoughts, answer the questions, and be sure to leave comments about your own revelations…

38:1-7 – This is the obedient response to God’s instruction to build the altar of burnt offering in 27:1-8. See Matthew 23:16-19.

38:1 – see 27:1.

38:2 – see 27:2.

38:8 – The basin for washing being made from mirrors of highly polished brass plundered from the Egyptians is to fulfill God’s request in 30:17-21. It is fitting that the item used to make it represented vanity since its purpose is to cleanse the priest. “It was a beautiful Old Testament expression of dying to self…The purpose is clear: before we can truly come before God for cleansing, we must examine ourselves to discover how we’ve erred.” (A Woman’s Heart: God’s Dwelling Place – Beth Moore)

38:21-31 – Who is Bezalel? To whom is he related? Where have you heard of that relative before? (Hint, this relative gave Moses a lift during a battle.)

What attributes of God have you observed in your study today? How will this change your relationship with Him?
