Exodus 23:20-24:18

  1. 23:20-33. Consider the promises God makes to the people and the demands he makes of them.
    Can you think of parallel spiritual promise made to Christians and demands made of them in the Christian life?
  2. 24:1-18. Why was this a day of significance and importance in the history of Israel?
    To what did the people commit themselves?
    Why is this covenant called (in 2 Cor. 3:7, 9) a ‘dispensation of condemnation’ and of ‘death’?
    What was God’s answer to the situation thus created?
    Cf. Lev. 17:11; Heb. 9:22.
