Seeing Double?- Explaining the seeming redundancies of the end of Sefer Shemot (audio shiur)
Many people think of this week’s parshiyot, Vayakhel and Pekudei, as a mere recap of parshiyot Terumah and Tetzaveh. In this week’s shiur we discuss the seeming repetition of the design and building of the mishkan and the bigdei kehunah in the two double-parshiyot. We show that, in fact, there were two different conceptions of what the mishkan needed to be, one before the Cheit HaEigel, and one after. We explore how the two versions of the aron, along with the two sets of luchot, reflect two different perspectives.
