Read, or Read.One is current, the other past tense. Both are equally important. Ignorance is not to be employed lightly; but sometimes there is no substitute for those that lack knowledge, awareness, or uninformed. Our LORD desires that we are full of knowledge, wisdom, and understanding: our Enemy; just the opposite.
Our LORD spoke to Moses, who was a type of Christ, and he wrote it down - to be Read to the people. This was the Priesthood's job. These Priest, were descendants of Levi, and so was Immanuel-Christ-Jesus. The majority of the people could not Read nor write; this is usually the doorway of the Thief.
Our LORD[YHVH] is the One Whom gave the Law to Moses, which was known as Mosaic Law. Jesus birth-Mom was a daughter of Aaron = Levi. And so was Jesus. The Law-Giver was constantly confronted by Hypocrites[Fakes], and Immanuel took that opportunity to - expose them as such.
The Enemy, and His children [Tares] always slither into positions where Reading and writing is required. Starting with Scribing for the Tribe of Judah, then attempting to steal their I.D.. The same for Centralized-govt.. The planners are Tares. "The Thief comes not but to steal, kill, and destroy" - that's all.
Immanuel-Christ-Jesus busted the Fakes by asking "Have you not Read." This question exposes them then, as well as today as Play-actors, and Hirelings. These wicked-leaders were Not following Mosaic-law, but the "Traditions of men" which belongs to Satan.
