Reasoned Cases for Christ


The Ark of the Covenant was built at the command of God. God commanded it to be built as a safe repository for the second set of stone tablets upon which the Ten Commandments were divinely inscribed (Deuteronomy 10:1-5). The original stone tablets were broken by Moses as a symbol of the people’s breaking of God’s Law. Before Moses could even descend from atop Mount Sinai with the Decalogue, the children of Israel managed to break God’s Law prior to receiving it by replacing God with a golden calf (Exodus 32:1-20).

That Israel’s worship of the golden calf had left them in the precarious predicament of all breakers of divine law was symbolized by Moses throwing down the original tablets of stone and breaking them to pieces. It was Moses’ curious and subsequent actions, however, that symbolized the only hope of divine pardon for all transgressors of God’s Law.
