Today, we’ll read Exodus 38, and find out just how much gold, silver and bronze it took to build the tabernacle and its furnishings, and in Matthew chapter 10, Jesus helps clarify where one’s allegiances should be. Our text today is again from the World English Bible.
May God bless the reading of His Word.
I did a fun little exercise today. Using the numbers given us in Exodus 38 regarding the amount of gold used in the tabernacle, I looked up the value of that gold using gold prices as of today’s date. Would you like to know the number? It’s $43,814,608.04. The silver at today’s value was $2,446,060.00. Bronze is an alloy of different metals, so I couldn’t find a value for that.
In Matthew, Jesus had some hard teachings, didn’t he? Especially the part about coming not to bring peace, but to divide families. What do you think about that? Is Jesus bad for families? Couldn’t be. Could he?
