Moses' relation to God takes a poignant turn after the Golden Calf and the building of the Mishkan (Tabernacle). Sin and atonement stand at the center of the drama of sacrifice that is to take place in the Mishkan. But such atonement is possible only for inadvertent sin: Why is this so? And how does this relate to the Golden Calf, and to the new intimacy that Moses, representing his people, enters in his relationship to God?
