The first seven chapters in Leviticus deal with the five different types of offerings the people were to make to Elohim. The first three offerings were sweet aroma offerings which were for worship and consecration. The last two offerings were non-sweet aroma offerings which were for pardon and forgiveness of sins.
Leviticus is not known for being the thrilling book in Scripture to read or study. As a matter of fact, the first time I read through it, I couldn’t wait for it to be over. This book consists of worship, sacrifice, ceremony, ritual, liturgy, instructions, washings, convocations, holy days, observances, conditions, and warnings. In and of itself, the book seemed downright boring to my “Christian” nature in those days.
This murderous act of Pilate is only recorded in Luke. The Galilaeans are frequently mentioned by Josephus as the most turbulent and seditious people, being upon all occasions ready to disturb the Roman authority. Pilate was a cruel ogre of a man. He intentionally tortured and killed many. His actions toward Yeshua and his cruel treatment of Him are a testimony forever to the evil in his heart.
There were thousands of people present and crammed together to hear the Words of Messiah. He told them to beware of the hypocrisy of the Pharisees. The Greek word for hypocrisy means “play-acting.” Their playing acting is spreading throughout Israel much like yeast spreads through dough.
Yeshua’s habit of praying to the Father did not escape the notice of His disciples. Apparently John taught his disciples what to pray and now His disciples want to know what is proper to ask the Father.
This chapter continues the construction. The construction of Altar of Burnt Offering, the Laver, and other materials of the Tabernacle are discussed.
This chapter is going to tell us about the construction of the Ark, the golden lampstand, and the altar of incense.
Yeshua finished His discourse in Judea and went to Capernaum. A certain centurion sent some Jewish elders to invite Yeshua to his home to heal a servant of his who was very ill. The elders told Yeshua that this man was worthy for his request to be given. Why was this man worthy?
Yeshua was led about by the Spirit for forty days. He did not eat anything during those forty days. During these forty days, Yeshua was tempted by Satan in various ways. Why did this all take place?
Paul describes Torah as “holy,” “righteous,” “good,” and “spiritual” in Romans chapter 7. He is hardly schizophrenic. Although Christian doctrine paints him to be as such, or at least confused. You will find our investigation of that passage at least interesting, if not eye-opening.
