This is interesting to me. I had not ever read this before and it shows that we are supposed to have a day set aside for church. I always wondered about this, about why we have meeting houses and why we have churches and here it is, straight out of the Bible. Like I said, I had never read this and I used to be under the assumption that I could have church anywhere, at any time, and now I see how wrong I actually was.
The remainder of the chapter talks about the feasts and meetings that are to be performed and how burnt offerings and unleavened bread is needed to be served on those days.
This chapter talks about a fire to the Lord that will be outside the tabernacle that will burn continuously. Also the law that includes "an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth" is introduced. More information on these laws and how to deal with those who are blasphemous are to be dealt with. Very interesting laws and how to play them out.
