UNDER THE LAW
Dr. Jerry Vines
"All that the Lord has spoken, we will do." That is a key to
understanding what we are going to study. In their wilderness journey
the children of Israel have not come to the Sinai Peninsular. It is
located between the Gulf of Suez and the Gulf of Accaba. It is much
like the desert where our men are presently in the Sauia Arabian desert.
Then abruptly towering above them in that sand there was a huge granite

tabernacle. If you will keep in mind exodus, law and tabernacle you
