Leviticus 21-22, Matthew 27:1-31
11Now Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor asked him, “Are you the King of the Jews?” Jesus said, “You have said so.” -ellie
Oops. Sorry about that, I must have hit a button while reading everyone’s insightful posts.
Worthy is the lamb! Our perfect, sinless ,spotless substitute! Jesus paid it all, and all to him I owe, sin has left a guilty stain, but he washed it white as snow. And when before the throne, we stand in him complete. Jesus died for our soul to save, so my lips shall still repeat that Jesus paid it all. Thank you Father for the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord. John 3:16
Matthew 26:25 “And all the people answered, ‘his blood be on us and on our children!” …and oh, how it is. What a chilling scene. Imagine the roar of voices, a riot on the brink of breaking out. So much anger in that crowd….All to condemn the man who came from heaven to save the world. And God saw it all. I cannot fathom the weight of it all.
I felt this too
It is truly amazing that we a sinful people are loved so much by a pure God! Thank you God for you consistent, compassionate love! Thank you for your son and loving us even when we have fallen short!
God is so AMAZING! As you read Leviticus and all the ways you have to be clean to approach God! He had a plan all along , He knew we could never live up to all that . He knew He was sending the perfect sacrifice JESUS so that believing in Jesus and what He has done for us it is through Him that the veil is torn and we can approach our Holy God! All through Leviticus He repeatedly says ” I AM LORD who makes them holy” Praise Jesus!
When reading in Leviticus about how the prostitutes and those with defects, it struck me how before Jesus they were were not allowed near Gods sanctuary-the holy place. When Jesus came, they were no longer cast aside as “unclean” but touched and healed by Jesus. What a clear picture of how he was separated from us by our sin but then made a way to come to US. Wow. Praise God
Thank you for sharing that! I was struck by the definition of being unclean in this reading and confused because aren’t we all considered God’s children? But your comments helped clarify for me.
What I got from Leviticus today: “I am the Lord. I am Holy. I make you holy. You should strive to to be like me, but I am the One who makes you holy”
