    I listed this under Exodus 33 so that those who are printing these off would have it in the right order. But this study is topical, and it is not by me.

    The Shekinah Glory of God is a very important subject as this glory, or glory cloud, is seen again and again throughout Scripture. Some think Adam and Eve were actually originally 'clothed' with this glory, and that when they sinned, the glory departed and they saw they were naked. Some think it was the Shekinah glory that stood specifically over the house in Bethelem where the magoi would find Jesus. The word "Shekinah" is not in Scripture... but there are better people to explain it than I.

    This chapter on the Shekinah Glory from Fred Miller’s book is excellent in giving background for the word itself and what it refers to biblically:

    Pastor David Roper, from Peninsula Bible Church here in California, has the following on the web as part of a larger sermon:

    And, finally, the following which was mentioned on a webpage that had a lot of wrong doctrine, but I liked this part (because some of the references were wrong, I'm not 'quoting' it but simply presenting the same verses they presented to present this idea.

    JESUS IS THE SHEKINAH GLORY!

    John 1:1, 14

    In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

    ...The Word became flesh and made his dwelling (tabernacled) among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.


    John 17:5
    "And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had wiht you before the world began."

    Hebrews 1:3a
    The Son is the readiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word.

    Revelation 21:22-23
    I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp.

    As we go into Exodus 33 tomorrow, Moses is about to be 'up close and personal' with the Shekinah glory of God.
