In Exodus 24, Moses recites and records in writing all the laws of the preceding chapters, the people promise to obey, and the nation formally enters into the Mosaic Covenant with God through animal sacrifice. “Moses took the blood, sprinkled it on the people, and said, ‘This is the blood of the covenant which the Lord has made with you according to all these words’” (Exodus 24:8). Pastor Dustin explains how the Mosaic covenant ceremony pre-figured the New Covenant, which Jesus ratified with His own blood, saying to His disciples at the last supper, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me” (1 Corinthians 11:25).
At the conclusion of the ceremony, God calls Moses, Joshua, and the certain elders of Israel aside to commune with Him on Mount Sinai. Today, Jesus calls all believers to draw near to Him.
