The Golden Calf Student’s Name Institution How does the episode of the Golden Calf describe the nature of Israel’s rebellion? God demonstrated his unceasing love for Israelites when He delivered them from Egypt. Through Moses, the Lord used an array of shocking wonders to free His people from their oppressor.

The Israelites worshiped the golden calf instead of Jehovah. In Exodus 20: 4-6, God told the Israelites “do not make any images of me.” The Israelites proved disobedient and ignorant. Moreover, Israelites manifested their arrogance through rebellion. As far as they were concerned, God was just part of creation, and He could be equated to any other creature like a calf. The Bible refers to God as “the Creator of heaven and earth” (Campbell, Genesis 21:22). The Israelites wanted a god who was close to them making it possible for them to take care of
