  1. Hey Sean and Jaquelle! I was wondering how you guys interpret and apply verses and chapters of the Bible that are about cubits, lengths, cloths, and materials. Obviously, God would not have these verses in the Bible without a purpose. What is that purpose, and how can we apply them?

  2. Hello Mr. Sean and Jaquelle!

    Another amazing and thought-provoking episode! I absolutely love these!

    I have a question. I’ve been reading the book of Exodus and there are a lot of chapters talking about the construction of a tabernacle and sanctuary. I kind of found those chapters a tad boring and difficult to read. I honestly don’t see the point of them in the Christian walk. Like, how do these apply to me when I am not a builder or as the Bible says, “skilled in craftsmanship”? Can you please explain these?

    Yours Truly,

    Grace

    1. Hey Grace. This is a wonderful question. And we’d like to answer it in an upcoming Mailbag episode. So stay tuned… =)
