The smoking furnace in the Bible

In the future there will be many psychological explanations for why so many people, experts included, could not see the blatantly obvious when it stared them in the face. Even this article uses a photo of a volcano, yet fails to make the connection. A whole list of Bible experts manage to come up with every conceivable interpretation of 'smoking furnace' and 'burning lamp' but fail to hit the nail on the head. It seems Bible experts prefer to expand on metaphors, pushing the poetic licence to extreme limits, rather than to take them back to source.

'Burning lamp' this instance, flaming gas vent inside the Tabernacle Tent.
