Review Exodus 32 and Deuteronomy 9 alongside this week’s assigned readings. For additional historical and contextual information, review the article “Golden Calf” in Dictionary of Old Testament: Pentateuch.
- How does the episode of the Golden Calf describe the nature of Israel’s rebellion?
- How does this episode connect to the broader theme of “rebellion” in the Bible?
Post at least two substantive responses to your colleagues. Responses should demonstrate active participation in academic discourse about texts and/or resources, connect relevant experience and academic knowledge, and communicate meaning with clarity and fluency. Responses could include suggestions for further resources, questions of clarification, or providing context and insight. Avoid simple posts of agreement; if you agree, explain why, and then thoughtfully further the conversation.
