Mr. Deity and the Matter
The part about the blood of the sacrificial ram sprinkled on the side as opposed to on the altar is the part that got a big laugh from me.
I just finished reading the book of Exodus, the last portion of which god has wasted a ridiculously boring ten chapters describing EXACTLY how to build the ark of the covenant and the tabernacle to house the ark and exactly how to design the priest's robes, including materials, measurements, design of imagery, exactly what animals to kill for sacrifice and exactly what to do with their, blood, skin, entrails, etc.. ad nauseum... These are the things they tend to gloss over at Sunday School...
