5 Cornerstone Biblical Commentary Chapters 8-10 appear to form a narrative in the midst of a record of regulations. It is not the case, however, that stories interrupted laws, but rather the reverse… the stories show the circumstances that gave birth to the laws, providing living flesh and sinews to the legal bones (57).

6 Leviticus 8:1-3 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2 “Take Aaron and his sons with him, and the garments and the anointing oil and the bull of the sin offering, and the two rams and the basket of unleavened bread, 3 and assemble all the congregation at the doorway of the tent of meeting.”

7 Leviticus 8:4-5 So Moses did just as the LORD commanded him. When the congregation was assembled at the doorway of the tent of meeting, 5 Moses said to the congregation, “This is the thing which the LORD has commanded to do.”

8 Leviticus 8:6 Then Moses had Aaron and his sons come near and washed them with water. The Septuagint translates this “washing” with the Greek word lou,w (louo)

9 Leviticus 8:7 He put the tunic on him and girded him with the sash, and clothed him with the robe and put the ephod on him; and he girded him with the artistic band of the ephod, with which he tied it to him.

10 Leviticus 8:8 He then placed the breastpiece on him, and in the breastpiece he put the Urim and the Thummim. “Lights” “Perfections”

11 Leviticus 8:9 He also placed the turban on his head, and on the turban, at its front, he placed the golden plate, the holy crown, just as the LORD had commanded Moses.

12 Leviticus 8:10 Moses then took the anointing oil and anointed the tabernacle and all that was in it, and consecrated them.

13 Leviticus 8:10 Moses then took the anointing oil and anointed the tabernacle and all that was in it, and consecrated them. xv; m'  Mashach vd'q '  Qadash

14 Leviticus 8:12 Then he poured some of the anointing oil on Aaron’s head and anointed him, to consecrate him.

15 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brothers to dwell together in unity! 2 It is like the precious oil upon the head, Coming down upon the beard, Even Aaron's beard, Coming down upon the edge of his robes (Psalm 133:1-2).

16 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, Because the LORD has anointed me To bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to captives And freedom to prisoners; 2 To proclaim the favorable year of the LORD (Isaiah 61:1-2).

17 Leviticus 8:13 Next Moses had Aaron’s sons come near and clothed them with tunics, and girded them with sashes and bound caps on them, just as the LORD had commanded Moses.

18 How does this relate to the church’s practice of ordination?

19 Leviticus 8:14-15 Then he brought the bull of the sin offering, and Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the head of the bull of the sin offering. 15 Next Moses slaughtered it and took the blood and with his finger put some of it around on the horns of the altar, and purified the altar. Then he poured out the rest of the blood at the base of the altar and consecrated it, to make atonement for it.

20 Leviticus 8:22-23 Then he presented the second ram, the ram of ordination, and Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the head of the ram. 23 Moses slaughtered it and took some of its blood and put it on the lobe of Aaron's right ear, and on the thumb of his right hand and on the big toe of his right foot.

21 Leviticus 8:24 He also had Aaron’s sons come near; and Moses put some of the blood on the lobe of their right ear, and on the thumb of their right hand and on the big toe of their right foot. Moses then sprinkled the rest of the blood around on the altar.

22 Leviticus 8:30 So Moses took some of the anointing oil and some of the blood which was on the altar and sprinkled it on Aaron, on his garments, on his sons, and on the garments of his sons with him; and he consecrated Aaron, his garments, and his sons, and the garments of his sons with him.

23 Leviticus 8:32-32 Then Moses said to Aaron and to his sons, “Boil the flesh at the doorway of the tent of meeting, and eat it there together with the bread which is in the basket of the ordination offering, just as I commanded, saying, ‘Aaron and his sons shall eat it.’ 32 The remainder of the flesh and of the bread you shall burn in the fire.”

24 Leviticus 8:33-34 You shall not go outside the doorway of the tent of meeting for seven days, until the day that the period of your ordination is fulfilled; for he will ordain you through seven days. 34 The LORD has commanded to do as has been done this day, to make atonement on your behalf.

25 Leviticus 8:35-36 “At the doorway of the tent of meeting, moreover, you shall remain day and night for seven days and keep the charge of the LORD, so that you will not die, for so I have been commanded.” 36 Thus Aaron and his sons did all the things which the LORD had commanded through Moses.

26 Why is so much attention given to the ordination of the priesthood?

27 Description of the opening ministry of these priests Instructions for the ordination of the priesthood Leviticus 8 Leviticus 9 Judgment and replacing of sinning priests Leviticus 10

28 Leviticus 9:22-23 Then Aaron lifted up his hands toward the people and blessed them, and he stepped down after making the sin offering and the burnt offering and the peace offerings. 23 Moses and Aaron went into the tent of meeting. When they came out and blessed the people, the glory of the LORD appeared to all the people.

29 Leviticus 9:24 Then fire came out from before the LORD and consumed the burnt offering and the portions of fat on the altar; and when all the people saw it, they shouted and fell on their faces.

30 Leviticus 10:1-2 Now Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took their respective firepans, and after putting fire in them, placed incense on it and offered strange fire before the LORD, which He had not commanded them. 2 And fire came out from the presence of the LORD and consumed them, and they died before the LORD.

31 Leviticus 10:3 Then Moses said to Aaron, “It is what the LORD spoke, saying, ‘By those who come near Me I will be treated as holy, And before all the people I will be honored.’” So Aaron, therefore, kept silent.

32 Brothers sin & are punished (10:1-5) Moses instructs the priests (10:6-7) Yahweh instructs Aaron (10:8-11) Moses instructs the priests (10:12-15) Brothers sin & are forgiven (10:16-20) Pg 68

33 Lessons from Nadab & Abihu God must be worshiped as He ordains that He is to be worshiped. Obedience is better than sacrifice. The presence of God can be either a curse or a blessing. It is possible to do the right thing in the wrong way

34 “How can we learn anything if no one disagrees?” Athol Dickson

35 How should one respond to seeming paradoxes in the Bible? Athol Dickson

36 What does it mean to struggle with God? Athol Dickson

37 What is a paradox or problem with which you struggle?

38 How do such paradoxes involve a struggle with God?

39 How do such struggles strengthen your faith?

40 Leviticus 10:4-5 Moses called also to Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of Aaron’s uncle Uzziel, and said to them, “Come forward, carry your relatives away from the front of the sanctuary to the outside of the camp.” 5 So they came forward and carried them still in their tunics to the outside of the camp, as Moses had said.

41 Leviticus 10:6 Then Moses said to Aaron and to his sons Eleazar and Ithamar, “Do not uncover your heads nor tear your clothes, so that you will not die and that He will not become wrathful against all the congregation. But your kinsmen, the whole house of Israel, shall bewail the burning which the LORD has brought about.”

42 Leviticus 10:8-9 The LORD then spoke to Aaron, saying, 9 “Do not drink wine or strong drink, neither you nor your sons with you, when you come into the tent of meeting, so that you will not die-- it is a perpetual statute throughout your generations--

43 Leviticus 10:10-11 “…and so as to make a distinction between the holy and the profane, and between the unclean and the clean, 11 and so as to teach the sons of Israel all the statutes which the LORD has spoken to them through Moses.” Holy Profane Clean Unclean

44 Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness? 15 Or what harmony has Christ with Belial, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever? (2 Corinthians 6:14-15)

45 Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said, “I will dwell in them and walk among them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.” (2 Corinthians 6:16).

46 “Therefore, come out from their midst and be separate,” says the Lord. “And do not touch what is unclean; And I will welcome you. 18 “And I will be a father to you, And you shall be sons and daughters to Me,” Says the Lord Almighty. (2 Corinthians 6:17-18).

53 Reasons for the Dietary Laws of the Mosaic Covenant Health Reasons

54 Reasons for the Dietary Laws of the Mosaic Covenant Health Reasons Symbolic Reasons –Animals that eat other animals are generally considered unclean –Scavengers are considered unclean To make a Separated People God’s Sovereign Choice

55 The distinction between clean & unclean went all the way back to Noah

56 Leviticus 11:44-45 For I am the LORD your God. Consecrate yourselves therefore, and be holy, for I am holy. And you shall not make yourselves unclean with any of the swarming things that swarm on the earth. 45 For I am the LORD who brought you up from the land of Egypt to be your God; thus you shall be holy, for I am holy.

57 Leviticus 11:46-47 This is the law regarding the animal and the bird, and every living thing that moves in the waters and everything that swarms on the earth, 47 to make a distinction between the unclean and the clean, and between the edible creature and the creature which is not to be eaten.

58 A Paradigm for a People

59 Are the Dietary Laws still in effect today?

60 Leviticus 11 Clean & unclean animals Leviticus 12 Clean & unclean people Realm of eatingRealm of childbirth Eating is necessary for the life of the individual Childbirth is necessary for the life of the nation

61 Seminal Discharges (Leviticus 15) The Law of the Leper (Leviticus 14) Tests for Leprosy (Leviticus 13) Uncleanliness in childbirth (Leviticus 12)

62 Why would childbirth render the mother ceremonially unclean?

63 His hands were swollen stumps, fingerless stumps of pink, sick meat marked by cracks and ulcerations from which a yellow exudation oozed through the medication. They hung on thin, hooped arms like awkward sticks. And even though his legs were covered by his hospital pajamas, they looked like gnarled wood.

64 Half of one foot was gone, gnawed away, and in the place of the other was nothing but an unhealable wound. His dull, cataractal eyes sat in his face as if they were the center of an eruption. The skin of his cheeks was as white-pink as an albino’s; it bulged and poured away from his eyes in waves, runnulets, as if it had been heated to the melting point… (Page 15)

66 Leviticus 14:1 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying…

67 Leviticus 14:2-4 “This shall be the law of the leper in the day of his cleansing. Now he shall be brought to the priest, 3 and the priest shall go out to the outside of the camp. Thus the priest shall look, and if the infection of leprosy has been healed in the leper, 4 then the priest shall give orders to take two live clean birds and cedar wood and a scarlet string and hyssop for the one who is to be cleansed.

68 Leviticus 14:5-6 The priest shall also give orders to slay the one bird in an earthenware vessel over running water. 6 As for the live bird, he shall take it together with the cedar wood and the scarlet string and the hyssop, and shall dip them and the live bird in the blood of the bird that was slain over the running water.

69 And a leper came to Jesus, beseeching Him and falling on his knees before Him, and saying, “If You are willing, You can make me clean.” (Mark 1:40).

70 Moved with compassion, Jesus stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, “I am willing; be cleansed.” 42 Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cleansed. (Mark 1:41-42).

71 And He sternly warned him and immediately sent him away… (Mark 1:43).

72 … and He said to him, “See that you say nothing to anyone; but go, show yourself to the priest and offer for your cleansing what Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.” (Mark 1:44).

73 What is the Bible’s view of sexuality?

74 Introduction (15:1-2a) Abnormal male discharges (15:2b-15) Normal male discharges (15:16-17) Marital intercourse affecting male and female (15:18) Normal female discharges (15:19-24) Abnormal female discharges (15:25-30) Summary (15:31-33) Pg 103

75 Sexual Cleanliness God is concerned with our sexualityGod is concerned with our sexuality Sexual discharges can be indicative of…Sexual discharges can be indicative of… –The birth of a fallen creature –The death of one in the image of God or of the potential of one in the image of God Sexual relationships have a far-reaching effectSexual relationships have a far-reaching effect

76 Mark 5:24-27 And He went off with him; and a large crowd was following Him and pressing in on Him. 25 A woman who had had a hemorrhage for twelve years, 26 and had endured much at the hands of many physicians, and had spent all that she had and was not helped at all, but rather had grown worse after hearing about Jesus, she came up in the crowd behind Him and touched His cloak.

77 Mark 5:28 For she thought, “If I just touch His garments, I will get well.”

78 Mark 5:29 Immediately the flow of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her affliction.

79 Mark 5:30 Immediately Jesus, perceiving in Himself that the power proceeding from Him had gone forth, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My garments?”

80 Mark 5:31 And His disciples said to Him, “You see the crowd pressing in on You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’”

81 Mark 5:32-34 And He looked around to see the woman who had done this. 33 But the woman fearing and trembling, aware of what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth. 34 And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace and be healed of your affliction.”
