The Law. Bible Story. Exodus 24 v 3 to 8
In this passage we have the record of the people agreeing the covenant that God made with the Children of Israel.
Moses was the mediator, and God gave him the Law and the promise of His protection and care for the people if the obeyed the words the Moses. Moses wrote all the laws and instructions given by God in a book which was called the book of the covenant.
They then sacrificed burnt offerings and peace offerings unto the Lord. Moses took the blood in a basin and sprinkled half on the alter.
Moses took the book and read it to the people. The people said “all that the Lord hath said, we will do”
Moses then springled the other half of the blood on the people. The blood is called the blood of the covenant.
