Exodus 31:1-18 Bezalel the Builder

Let's look to our passage in Exodus 31:1-18, where we get God's instructions regarding the builders of the tabernacle. Now, the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,

Now the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, "See, I have called by name Bezalel, the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah. "I have filled him with...

Chapter 32

God Reigns

Over and over again we’ve heard this particular warning every hurricane season; we heard it at the last hurricane that was threatening the east coast just recently from the governor of Florida, Rick Scott, you remember. “This storm will kill you,” he said. The message was clear. “Listen to the evacuation warning. Get yourself and your family to safety. This storm will kill you.” And yet this time...


Exodus 32:1-10 Sin at Sinai

Open your Bibles please to Exodus 32, as we continue to work our way through this great book. You may remember that from Exodus 25 to 31, God in great detail explains the structure at which He will meet with His people in worship, and the way in which His people must come to Him in worship. So, the totality...


Exodus 32:11-18 Does God Change His Mind?

Exodus, chapters 25 through 40, is a section that teaches Israel how to worship, how God is to be worshiped rightly, and in the middle, in chapter 32, we find this story about idolatry and infidelity to the living God. We've already noted that there are several huge themes that run throughout Exodus 32-34. First of all, this...


Sermon on Feb 26, 2003

Exodus 32:19-35

Exodus 32:19-35 Who is on the Lord's Side?

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Exodus 32, as we continue to study the story of the golden calf. We've looked previously at this idolatry of Israel and Moses’ beautiful prayer of intercession in response, and in our previous study we raised some significant questions regarding how God responds to...

Chapter 33

God Reigns

I was reading something this week about military disasters and the author offered a definition of a military disaster. He said there are three parts of the definition of a military disaster. The first part is chronic mission failure; your forces fail to achieve their objective. The second part is successful enemy action; your forces fail but the enemy succeeds. And the third part is the total denigration...

Exodus 33:1-11

Exodus 33:1-11 I Will Not Go in Your Midst

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Exodus 33. In Exodus, one of the great themes we have seen over and over, is that we are saved to worship. God not only brought His people out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage, in order...


Exodus 33:12-23 A Mediator with a Heart

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Exodus 33, as we continue our study in the Old Testament. In the first eleven verses of this chapter, especially verse 3, the Lord says to Moses, “to go up to a land flowing with milk and honey, for I will not go up in...

It’s a great pleasure to be with you this evening.  It’s a great honor to be asked to do this.  I don’t know if David Strain really knew what he was doing when he asked me to do this because I have a tendency to embarrass those who are very dear to me.  You can just ask my wife about that!  Many of you may not know that...

Chapter 34


Exodus 34:1-9 The Lord Passes By

If you have your Bibles, we are in Exodus 34, in the middle of the story of the golden calf and its aftermath, which runs from Exodus 32 to 34. It's ironic, isn't it, right smack in the middle of a section on worship, we have a story about idolatry. Of course, there's no mistake in that, that's precisely...


Glorifying God Exodus 34:10-28

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Exodus 34 as we continue to work our way through this great book. We come to the end of a passage which forms the center of the book and focuses on the golden calf incident. Let's hear God's word.

Then God said, "Behold, I am going...


The Face of Moses Exodus 34:29-35

I'd invite you to turn with me to Exodus 34. Tonight we come to the end of our study of the golden calf incident. These very last verses, these verses at the end of chapter 34, exalt the mediator Moses. Now this began in Exodus 32:1, “When the people saw that Moses delayed to come down from the mountain...

Chapter 35


Exodus 35:1-19 Sabbath and Construction

If you’ll open your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Exodus chapter 35. We are moving into the very last section of the book of Exodus and Moses’ record of the building of the tabernacle. And the very fact that the culminating chapters of this book of epic adventures climaxes on the story of the construction of...

As a family, one of our favorite things to do is to visit the national parks of this great country. And before each trip, you know, we try to find out as much detail about each of the parks as we can, particularly about the wildlife in the parks. We want to, we talk about which animals we really want to see while we’re there. And every day...

Exodus 35:20-36:7

Exodus 35:20-36:7 Gifts and Craftsmen

I'd like you to turn with me to the book of Exodus again: Exodus chapter 35, and we’ll begin in verse 20 tonight. It would be easy to get lost in the details of this passage and to be lulled to sleep and to miss the repeated and obvious grand emphases that we find here, so there are several that...

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

Amen. If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Exodus, chapter 35. This Lord's Day and next, on Sunday mornings we're going to take a break from our study of the Pastoral Epistles and from II Timothy to look at two passages that have been...

Exodus 35:20-22 & Exodus 36:2-7 The Donation Dilemma

The Reverend Dr. O Palmer Robertson

Ligon made a brief reference to the bricks of this place. When I was a little boy, we were members of the church when it was located just a block down on North State Street from Capitol Street, and the decision had been made to relocate First Presbyterian...

Sermon on Apr 23, 2003

Exodus 36:8-38:20

Exodus 36:8 — 38:20 Progress of Construction

If you have your Bibles, please turn with me to Exodus 36. When we get to this part of Exodus, much of this material is duplicated from earlier passages in Exodus. The difference is that the earlier passages, commanding the way the tabernacle was to be built, the way the various pieces of furnishing for the tabernacle was...

Sermon on Apr 30, 2003

Exodus 38:21-39:31

Exodus 38:21 — 39:31 Priestly Garments

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to the Book of Exodus and to the chapter 38:21. We are just three or so sermons away from the end of this book, and tonight we're really at our last long reading. Next readings are going to be shorter, concentrating on some specific aspects of the...

Exodus 39:32-43

“Moses’ Benediction”

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III

We've said over and over that one third of the Book of Exodus is devoted to the instructions regarding the building of the tabernacle and in the report of the carrying out of the building of the tabernacle. And we've also said...
