Thought from Today’s Old Testament Passage:
This and the next chapter contain a repetition of laws concerning the great religious observances of the nation. This repetition is an orderly statement covering the whole year and, indeed, showing its relationship in every period to spiritual matters. It was thus set forth on the eve of their entering on possession of the land in order that the arrangements for worship might be duly made and properly carried out.
First we have the religious rites appointed for the small time divisions. Daily sacrifices were arranged for (verses 1-8), weekly offerings which were to be made on the Sabbath were named (verses 9, 10), and the monthly offerings appointed (verses 11-15)….
[Chapter 29] Thus the whole year was covered and conditioned by these solemn religious rites and ceremonies. Every day as it broke and passed, every week as it began, every month as it opened, every year both as it commenced and closed was sealed with the sacred matters which ever spoke to the people of the relation they bore to God, as based on sacrifice and expressing itself in service.

Building on the case for the intelligent design of life that he developed in Signature in the Cell and Darwin’s Doubt, Meyer demonstrates how discoveries in cosmology and physics coupled with those in biology help to establish the identity of the designing intelligence behind life and the universe.
