Location, location, location?
All holiness comes from Him [Yahweh]. So, if it is a holy place, it is because He is there. When God said to Moses, “The place you are standing on is holy ground,” it was not because it was a religious site; it was not because it was a high place; it was not because other people had worshiped there before. It was holy because Yahweh was there. He alone is the source of holiness. And if there is anything holy, it gets its identification from its relationship to Him.— Lectures in Old Testament Theology, page 66
