The Law of Moses I. The Law: Some preliminary considerations A. Centrality i. Law of Moses central to Bible as a whole, Pentateuch goes under Law of Moses. Exod. 20 Decalogue-giving of the Law, doesn’t stop there! From Exodus to Leviticus to Numbers ch.10, and through Deuteronomy. ii. Forms the very heart of Judaism B. Overall conception i. Laid out in the beginning when Moses speaks with God on Mt. Sinai. ii. Exod. 19:4-6 1. First Comes Salvation 2. That Requires a Duty 3. That Brings a Promise (You shall be my treasured possession out of all the peoples) –God’s chosen people C. The Key Players i. Priests (descended from Aaron- a hereditary class)- holy, set apart from everyone else, mediators between God and men. ii. Levites (descended from Levi; originally country priests?)- don’t figure very prominently in book of Exodus. Jacob has 12 sons, Levi one of them. Aaron descendent of Levi.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
