Day 46

So, interesting stuff on pomegranates. They appear quite a lot in ancient Israel decorations and were often an adornment/decoration for religious rituals. I'd like to do some more research on it when I get a chance. There are some who have even been comparing the Hebrew words/definitions for pomegranate and apple and speculate that the forbidden fruit may have been the pomegranate. I was wondering why God told Moses to have pomegranates alternating with gold bells on the bottom of the high priest's garment. Hence, my selection for today and the beginning of a little research... Thought oil pastels would work well for the vibrant color and highlights.

Day 46 Readings: Exodus 39:1-40:38, Mark 1:1-28, Psalm 35:1-16, Proverbs 9:11-12

Exodus 39:24-26 - Pomegranates

Day 47 Readings: Leviticus 1:1-3:17, Mark 1:29-2:12, Psalm 35:17-28, Proverbs 9:13-18  Onto another new book - Leviticus!
