In this teaching, Ross covers what the Torah calls the Big Sin – the sin of the golden calf. He points out that in the midst of describing the making of a Holy Place, the people of Israel committed a grievous sin. Less than 6 weeks after receiving the covenant, and being charged with the task of making a dwelling place for YHVH, the people quickly turn from the commanded way. What caused this turning from the way? The Torah attributes it to a condition described as “Stiff necked.” Ross demonstrates that according to Scripture, God cannot dwell in the presence of sin. And yet despite this rule, Moses successfully intercedes on behalf the children of Israel, making a point that BECAUSE of this condition, the people need YHVH to dwell in their midst! You will not want to miss this insightful lesson on sin and separation.
