Tip of the Day, September 24

24 September

September 24 – Exodus 28:30; “And thou shalt put in the breastplate of judgment the Urim and the Thummim; and they shall be upon Aaron’s heart, when he goeth in before the LORD: and Aaron shall bear the judgment of the children of Israel upon his heart before the LORD continually.”


This is the first place in the Bible that the Urim and Thummim are mentioned.  Why in the Pearl of Great Price is Abraham claiming that he had possession of them long before God had commanded Aaron to use them in the Holy of the Holies?  Abraham died circa BC 1816. Aaron wasn’t even born until BC 1529, some 287 years after Abraham died.  I would ask the Mormon why there is such a huge discrepancy in this important historical event.


Abraham 3:1; “And I, Abraham, had the Urim and Thummim, which the Lord my God had given unto me, in Ur of the Chaldees.”
