Notes on Numbers 18-20

For the ninth time in the book of Numbers, the children of Israel gathered around again and complained about their situation. This time they were so thirsty that they were wishing the God killed them like he killed the thousands of their friends and family.

Notes on Numbers 14-15

Once again, the children of Israel are complaining about their situation (Numbers 14). Their lack of patience is exactly what we deal with on a day to day basis. God promised them something, and it did not happen on THEIR time, so THEY are unhappy. This is what we all do. We want something NOW … Continue reading Notes on Numbers 14-15

Notes on Numbers 7-10

The construction of the tabernacle, altar, and the sacrificial tools was finished and the blessing of these instruments commenced in Numbers 7. The amount of detail God keeps record of in the book of Numbers is astounding. The number of people, sacrificed animals, weight of the tools, etc. are all written down for us to … Continue reading Notes on Numbers 7-10

Notes on Leviticus 24-25

A mixed-race boy (Semitic and Hamitic) from the tribe of Dan (Antichrist) cursed God and blasphemed in public. His punishment, according to Leviticus 24:14, was to be stoned to death. Mohammad, in his attempt to usurp the story of Moses for his own, made this idea a foundational doctrine for Islam. Therefore, even drawing an … Continue reading Notes on Leviticus 24-25

Notes on Leviticus 22-23

There are seven feasts that the Israelites are supposed to have for God. There are the Passover, Feast of Unleavened Bread, Feast of Firstfruits, Feast of Pentecost, Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, and Feast of Tabernacles. Each one bears special significance for the Israelites as well as Christians. Passover is a remembrance of when … Continue reading Notes on Leviticus 22-23

Notes on Leviticus 16-18

Leviticus 16 gives us a picture of Christ as the scapegoat. A bullock and a goat are killed as burnt offerings for the Israelites, while an additional goat is to take on “all their transgressions in all their sins (verse 21)” so that this goat would “bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land … Continue reading Notes on Leviticus 16-18

Notes on Leviticus 11-13

Leviticus 11 is a list of animals that the children of Israel could and could not eat. It was actually a fairly extensive list. No camels, rabbits, shellfish, eels, snakes, insects, shrimp, ravens, owls, and many others. The one that hits home for me is no swine, because I am a filthy sausage and bacon … Continue reading Notes on Leviticus 11-13

Notes on Leviticus 8-10

When the blood is applied to the priests in Leviticus 8:23-26, it is placed on the right ear, right thumb, and great toe of the right foot. When reading this, I had to wonder what the significance of this was. So far, there is much speculation. I like the idea of Philo (1st century church … Continue reading Notes on Leviticus 8-10

Notes on Leviticus 5-7

There are a variety of sins listed in Leviticus 5-7. These include touching unclean things, swearing (making a vow), consuming blood, lying to neighbors, and sinning out of ignorance of the law. Punishments range from animal sacrifice to death or exile. Most of the time, a burnt offering was required. The significance of this should … Continue reading Notes on Leviticus 5-7

Notes on Exodus 39-40

Exodus 39-40 is the completion of the priestly garments and tabernacle itself. As I have mentioned in my previous notes, the Levite ephod is covered in the same gemstones that one would find on a cherub. Thus, the Israelite high priest was decorated in the same fashion as the highest order of angels (see my … Continue reading Notes on Exodus 39-40
