The Tablets of Stone

Spread the love

You no doubt remember the story of how Moses, after receiving the first tablets of stone upon which the Ten Commandments were written, came down the mountain and upon seeing the sin and idolatry of the Israelites he threw the tablets to the ground and broke them! (Ex 32:19) Ouch. Ooops.

God had to write a second set of tablets and this set were stored in the Ark. Symbolically, the first set of tablets represent you and me. It represents mankind. No sooner has the law gone forth from God’s own hand than we have broken it and disobeyed the commandment. But the second set represents the Lord Jesus. Through trial, temptation, weariness and pain, He conquered all and lived a sinless life. He had to so that He could be our substitute as a sin offering.
