God wants everyone to know him

Everything God made is designed to teach about him. [1] However, it is difficult to learn from the stars and rocks. We learn easier through words and actions.

God chose some people; the Hebrews, to teach everyone else about him [2], but they didn't know him very well themselves.

God wrote a play and chose the Hebrews to be the actors. [3] He gave them some commandments, a tabernacle, and some feasts to live by. These things were the script for the play. Everyone else would watch the play and learn about God. [4]

God used their lives to write another story. [5] [6]When they did what he asked, and when they didn't; God wrote about himself, Jesus, and the cross, using the things in their history as symbols. [7]

This is hard to understand. Imagine if you played hopscotch, and every jump you took, the jump was used to tell the story of Jesus. As the people lived their lives, God used every jump to tell his story.

In this book, we will look at the script; the rules God gave them about things they could eat. Through the symbols, good and bad teachers will be revealed by their behaviors.
