David – with great humility – agrees with Scott’s point that Moses’ third argument was actually a prayer after all; meanwhile, Scott backtracks and claims that there’s no difference between an argument and a prayer, anyway. Join the discussion and let us know what you think!
Morning Drive Bible
When Moses asks G-d to “Turn Away from Your Anger, and Repent of the Evil Plan Against Your People,” is this an argument or a prayer? Join David and Scott as they hash out this Scriptural question.
As missles fall over southern and central Israel, David and Scott offer their reactions to the situation on this special bonus episode of Morning Drive Bible. Please share so that people know the truth of what’s happening in Israel.
What is the concept of “Sanctification of the Divine Name,” what does it have to do with Israel’s mission, and how is it related to Moses’ argument to G-d not to destroy the Children of Israel after the sin of the golden calf?
Are the Jewish People responsible only for each other… or also for the moral wellbeing of all humanity? Listen in to find out! (Plus: a discussion about the Jewish attitude towards the United States of America.)
When the people saw the golden calf, the Bible reports that, “They said, ‘This is your god, O Israel, who took you up from the land of Egypt.'” (Exodus 32:4) Who is speaking? If it’s Israel, why are they seemingly speaking to themselves? If it’s not Israel, who else could it be? Tune in for the surprising answer.
As the people are clamoring to celebrate this new golden calf, Aaron tries to delay the festivities to the next day, and to shift them into a holiday for the Lord. But early the next morning, the people “make merry.” Is that really such a bad thing?
After ths sin of the golden calf, Moses asks G-d, “Why are You angry?” Does this make any sense? OF COURSE G-d is angry! Join David and Scott as they investigate the logic of Moses’ question.
