Mt. Sinai Mystery

I can’t stand it any more.  I just have to ask.

Back in January of 2011, I published a blog post called, “Up and Down Mt. Sinai” (See January 27, 2011).  Since then, thousands of people have read that little essay.  That’s saying a lot, since I have many posts that have been read only once or twice.  Week after week for almost two years, “Up and Down” has been my Top Post by a landslide.  For the life of me, I can’t figure out why.  It’s a mystery.

Do lots of people type “Mt. Sinai” into a search engine and stumble onto my blog?  Or is someone checking into my blog one hundred times a day just to get my heart racing?   Or is there a religious school somewhere that has marked my post as required reading?  I’m at a loss.  I’d like your help.  Tell me why you are here.  I’m dying to know.  Thanks!

  1. Well, I hit this page because I had read the first 17 or so chapters of Exodus and I was trying to find a quick answer to how many times Moses went up and down the mountain. And that is how I hit your site – quite simple – and I think the answer is five! Working from chapters 19 through to 34! Is it 5?

  2. I have counted 6 trips up and down between chapters 19-34.
    1st trip – Up: Ex.19:3 Down: Ex.19:7
    2nd trip – Up: Ex. 19:8 Down: Ex. 19:14
    3rd trip – Up: Ex. 19:20 Down: Ex. 19:25
    4th trip – Up: Ex. 20:21 Down: Ex. 24:3
    5th trip – Up: Ex.24:9 Up higher with Joshua: Ex. 24:15
    Down: Ex. 32:15
    6th trip – Up: Ex. 34:4 Down: 34:29
