Rav Tamir Granot You Shall Make For Yourself an Ark of Wood In this shiur we shall compare the command to fashion the second set of tablets, as described by Moshe, and the original narrative in Sefer Shemot.

We will see that the contradiction between the two descriptions of Moshe’s second ascent of the mountain to receive the tablets is an expression of two different theological approaches that are reflected in Sefer Shemot, on the one hand, and Sefer Devarim, on the other.
