Exodus 32:11-24 (The Golden Calf – The Testing of Moses)

Exodus 32:11-24
The Golden Calf – The Testing of Moses

Exodus 32 is logically divided into three main sections, with several subsections. Today’s passage fills the second main section and has three individual subsections. Last week we saw the testing of Aaron and his failure to stand fast against the pressures of the people.… Read the rest
