Stupid Bible Story part 160 – Bells Make You Immortal

Share

ex39-high-priest-garmentsExodus 28:34-35 KJV
(34) A golden bell and a pomegranate, a golden bell and a pomegranate, upon the hem of the robe round about.
(35) And it shall be upon Aaron to minister: and his sound shall be heard when he goeth in unto the holy place before the LORD, and when he cometh out, that he die not.

OK, if you don’t think that this is stupid I’d like to point out that there aren’t any 3000 year old Jews around.  But seriously, the part that’s really funny here is the way this is supposed to work.

Let’s sew a bell and a pomegranate on the hem of your robe and alternate all the way around.  Then walk around and jingle your way into the hole place in the Temple.  God is going to reward this very hippy sound with you not dieing.

I mean come on people….this is hilarious.  I mean it might get bears to leave you alone, but it’s not going to do anything else other than make you look like an idiot.

The thing is, if you Google this you’ll find they still make robes like this.  They are sometimes called Glory Garments.   OK, they replace the pomegranates with a little fuzzy purple ball, but it’s obvious this is what they are going for here.

Seriously folks, you really need to act like it’s past the sixteen hundreds.
