Definitely the hardest summary yet. So much happens in this chapter! I'm particularly conscious of having missed out the tablets of the law over the last two.

It's interesting that things like the instructions for the tabernacle get so much space, but events as momentous as these only get one chapter between them.


Connecting V 33 The Lord replied to Moses, ‘Whoever has sinned against me I will blot out of my book with Rev 21 V 27 talking about the New Jerusalem.... Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's book of life.
