Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Exodus 36:35


36:35 The veil made for a partition between the holy place and the most holy, signified the darkness and distance of that dispensation compared with the New Testament, which shews us the glory of God more clearly, and invites us to draw near to it; and the darkness and distance of our present state in comparison with heaven, where we shall be ever with the Lord, and see him as he is.


Discussion for Exodus 36

  • Christ Magnified Glorifying Jesus
    End of day 27 Bible in a Year Reading. God is so patient with His people. When we choose not to follow Him; He is there calling us back and ready to give us something to do that allows us to express our obedience and gratitude by use of "talent" or "treasury". These "children" learned their crafts, trades and arts as slaves for pharaoh, but they were fully demonstrated here for God's purpose.
  • Irene123
    To disciple - If you will re-read my comment on Beezaleel and Aholiab you 'may' see that I was only - 'musing' and that it had nothing to do with anything important - such as - salvation. People will read things in a flash and not 'think; about it first.
  • A disciple
    Irene, Have you ever seen someone who was truly gifted in one thing or another? The Lord made them that way! Like when He told Moses, that He knew Aaron his brother could speak well; God makes us all the way He makes us! Not only Beezaleel and Aholiab; but all the others, "whose spirits stirred them up" to come do the work; God gave them all understanding and skill to do every aspect of the work.
  • Irene123
    Beezaleel and Aholiab; I wonder if they were born with their knowledge or did God endow them with it - miraculously? It doesn't matter; their and all our knowledge comes from God. But - we have put forth an effort by staying in school, listening to our parents; the Lord helps those who help themselves.
  • Charlotte Agbakla for verse 1
    OUR GOD IS A GREAT GOD. HE APPOINTED AND CALLED BY NAME WHOM SHOULD WORK AT HIS SUNCTAURY AND BEAZALEE AND OHOLIAB DID OBEY HIS VOICE. AS BELIVERS WE HAVE TO OBEY HIS VOICE FOR HE IS OUR MAKER.
