Text: Exodus 31:12-18.
“And he gave to Moses, when he had finished speaking with him on Mount Sinai, the two tablets of the testimony, tablets of stone, written
with the finger of God,” (verse 18). The Law was written in tablet of stone to indicate the perpetual duration of it. The tablets were written with the finger of God meaning by His Will and power. Here we see God writing the Bible by His Will and Power through Moses. It is only God who can write His Law in the hearts of men and women.
Reflect on verse 18, why are there two tablets?(Some Christian commentators believe that these two identical copies were in line with
the way society then handled treaties: each treaty partner had one copy each, and both copies would be kept in their respective sanctuaries.
And this time they were both placed in the Ark, the dwelling place of God and a focal point of Israel’s sanctuary). Why are they called tablets of the testimony? What new things are you learning from this text?
My heavenly Father, thank You for giving us the Word in the written form, written by the finger of God. In the name of Jesus Christ I
pray, Amen.
