Of the entire biblical debts that illustrate the honor of the LORD, the narrative of Moses' stumble upon with God on Mount Sinai (Horeb) comprises nineteen of the twenty-one parts that demonstrate the consideration of the LORD: mountains, sacred numbers, God's voice, people's (person's) reaction, cloud, water, thunder, lightning, trumpet blast, smoke, hearth, earthquake, phrases of the development (covenant), signal, transformation of witnesses, altar, ceremonial dinner (meal), wind, mild and darkness, jewels (precious stones), and goals. each one point is tested heavily utilizing biblical texts that top illustrate it.

"In a skillful method, Boyer offers a quantity that not just walks the reader during the components linked to biblical theophanies, yet makes it transparent how those occasions have been tied to an knowing in their paintings via the ancients and their reputation of divine strength being manifested in traditional phenomena. He then offers a beneficial significant other part that addresses how sleek readers can achieve worth from those historical stories. In this fashion, what may rather be pushed aside as unscientific bills is reworked into the chance for mirrored image and prayer from a latest perspective."
