As a freshman in high school I had to read Charles Dickens' book, Great Expectations. I can think of many ways to describe that book, but a few words that come to my mind are: boring, too detailed, really long, etc. I often wondered how in the world Dickens was able to come up with so much stuff to write (hopefully nobody who reads this blog is thinking the same about me!). Then when I read this portion from Exodus I realized that there are infinitely more details in this account than in any Dickens novel. Could a mere human have made up all of minutia recorded here? Better yet, could a male have really made up all of those details? When I read this, I see further evidence of a Creator God for whom even minor details play a significant role.
