- How did God expect Moses to remember all the building instructions? Did he write them down?
- God keeps reminding Moses to build the things according to instructions but in a strange manner. He doesn’t say “follow the instructions I am giving you”, but “build these things the way you were shown you on the mountain”. He’s speaking in the past tense and saying that he ‘showed’ it to Moses. Also, is Moses not still on the mountain?
- The Israelites are to be commanded to bring oil (27:20). This does not seem to be voluntary like in 25:1-7.
