Study notes for Leviticus 8-10

Leviticus Chapter 8

God spoke to Moses

  1. Moses called Aaron and his sons to the front of the Tent of Meeting
  2. Moses cleansed Aaron and his sons, then dressed Aaron in proper garments for the chief priest
  3. Moses anointed the meeting tent
  4. Moses anointed the altar and the utensils seven times, thus consecrating the altar
  5. Moses anointed Aaron, thus consecrating Aaron
  6. Moses brought Aaron’s sons forward and dressed them
  7. Moses offered sacrifices to God
    1. Absolution offering — a bull
    2. Whole burnt offering — a ram
    3. Ordination offering
      1. A second ram
      2. Wave offering — unraised bread (made with oil and wafer)
    4. Moses used the blood and oil and sprinkled them on Aaron and his sons
  8. Moses then instructed Aaron and his sons
    1. Boil meat at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting and some bread from the basket and eat
    2. Aaron and his sons were to stay at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting for seven days and nights to complete their ordination (which they did)

Leviticus Chapter 9

Moses called Aaron and his sons

  1. On the eighth day the priest goes to work
    1. Offer a bull calf for absolution offering
    2. Offer a ram for the whole burnt offering
  2. Aaron and the priests purifying
    1. Male goat — absolution offering
    2. A bull and ram — peace offering
    3. A grain offering mixed with oil — grain offering
    4. Aaron approached the altar and offered an absolution offering and whole burnt offering to atone for Aaron and the people
  3. Aaron and his sons then presented offerings for the people
    1. Male goat — absolution offering
    2. Whole burnt offering
    3. Grain offering
    4. Peace offering
    5. Wave offering
    6. Aaron raised his hands after all the offerings and blessed the people
  4. Aaron then came down from the altar and he and Moses entered the Tent of Meeting
  5. When they came out of the Tent, Aaron raised his hands and blessed the people
  6. When Aaron came down from the altar, the Glory of God appeared and fire blazed out from God and consumed the whole burnt offering and fat pieces with the fire

Leviticus Chapter 10

Nadab & Abihu (Aaron’s sons) took their censers and put hot coals and incense in them. This was an offering not commanded by God — God sent fire and consumed the two.

Moses said to Aaron: This is what God said when God said:

To the one who comes near me
I will show myself holy;
Before all the people
I will show my glory.

Aaron was silent.

Moses called sons of Uzziel (Aaron’s uncle) to come and carry your cousins outside the camp.

Moses then told Aaron and his sons — do not mourn their loss or they too would die, but stay at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting.  The people of Israel will mourn for the two lost.

God instructed Aaron to Enter the Tent of Meeting.

  • Do not drink wine or strong drink — lest you die.  This is a fixed rule to be observed through all generations.
  • Distinguish between
    • holy and common
    • ritually clean and unclean

Moses spoke to Aaron & the surviving sons — take the grain offering — go inside and take what is holy and eat — for what is left to eat, it is your portion.

Moses instructed Aaron that his sons and daughters could eat the breasts of the wave offering and the thigh of the contribution offering.

A problem — the two sons remaining ate the absolution offering but weren’t in the Holy Tent.  Aaron answered Moses — it would not be good if we ate the absolution offering inside of the tent due to the error of the two deceased sons.  Moses heard and accepted the explanation.

Study notes for Leviticus 5-7

Leviticus 5, Verses 1-6

Unintentional sins

  1. You saw a crime but didn’t offer yourself as a witness = you have sinned
  2. You touch a dead animal — it is unclean and you don’t realize you have = you have sinned
  3. You touch human uncleanness and you didn’t know it = you are guilty
  4. You impulsively swear or say an oath that you didn’t mean to make = you are guilty

Leviticus 5, Verses 7-13

Remedy (when guilty): Confess your sin — i.e., use an absolution-offering to get a clean slate

  • Lamb or two doves or two pigeons = absolution-offering (one bird); whole burnt offering (another bird)
  • If you can’t afford to offer animals, bring two quarts of fine flour for absolution-offering (priest burns a handful, then you are forgiven, the rest belongs to the priests)

Leviticus Chapter 5, Verses 14-19

Compensation-offering

  • Sin — i.e., you betray a trust or stray from any guides God gave = you have sinned
  • Cure = compensation-offering
  • Use a ram, have it valued in shekels, then add 20 percent of the value and give to the priests

Leviticus 6, Verses 1-6: Sin

  1. You betray God’s trust when you rob or cheat or threaten your neighbor, or when you
  2. Find a item and don’t return it to its owner = you have sinned

Leviticus 6, Verses 1-6: Cure

  1. Make full compensation for the item (full value of the item)
  2. Add 20 percent as your compensation-offering
  3. Present a ram to the priest in addition to your compensation-offering

This is the eighth installment in our Monday Night Bible Study series, which began in Summer 2020. Past topics have included:

Lent 2022 Readings, Worship Schedule and Worship Topics

Lenten call to worship:

Jesus said, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence.’ This is the most important, the first on any list. But there is a second to set alongside it: ‘Love others as well as you love yourself.’ These two commands are pegs; everything in God’s Law and the Prophets hangs from them.” (Matthew 22:37-40)

Week 1: Loving God with passion, prayer and intelligence

  • Sermon 3/6: Pastor Paul preaching
  • Bible study 3/7
  • Old Testament reading: Exodus 20:1-11, The 10 Commandments
  • New Testament reading: I John 4:10-19
  • Sermon passage: John 14:8-14

Week 2: What it is to be mindful of God

  • Sermon 3/13: Vicar Alyce preaching
  • Bible study 3/14
  • Old Testament reading: Daniel 2:19-23
  • New Testament reading: Matthew 6:6-13
  • Sermon passage: Mark 12:29-34

Week 3: Loving ourselves

  • Sermon 3/20: Pastor Paul preaching
  • Bible study 3/21
  • Old Testament reading: Psalms 139
  • New Testament reading: Ephesians 5:1-12
  • Sermon passage: Matthew 5:1-12
  • Key verse: Matthew 5:5

Week 4: Loving ourselves

  • Sermon 3/27: Vicar Alyce preaching
  • Bible study 3/28
  • Old Testament reading: Psalm 149 or 150
  • New Testament reading: Ephesians 2:1-8
  • Sermon passage: Philippians 1:9-11

It wasn’t so long ago that you were mired in that old stagnant life of sin. You let the world, which doesn’t know the first thing about living, tell you how to live. You filled your lungs with polluted unbelief, and then exhaled disobedience. We all did it, all of us doing what we felt like doing, when we felt like doing it, all of us in the same boat. It’s a wonder God didn’t lose his temper and do away with the whole lot of us. Instead, immense in mercy and with an incredible love, he embraced us. He took our sin-dead lives and made us alive in Christ. He did all this on his own, with no help from us! Then he picked us up and set us down in highest heaven in company with Jesus, our Messiah.

Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It’s God’s gift from start to finish! (Ephesians 2:1-8)

So this is my prayer: that your love will flourish and that you will not only love much but well. Learn to love appropriately. You need to use your head and test your feelings so that your love is sincere and intelligent, not sentimental gush. Live a lover’s life, circumspect and exemplary, a life Jesus will be proud of: bountiful in fruits from the soul, making Jesus Christ attractive to all, getting everyone involved in the glory and praise of God. (Philippians 1:9-11)

7 Steps to Personal Freedom: Colossians 3:12-14

A Message for the New Year

On Sunday I discussed seven steps that if we stay focused on them can change our lives and provide for a year filled with blessings and great joy. Here they are.

So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it. (Colossians 3:12-14)

I wish to show/incorporate these into my daily life as I deal with people:

 1) Compassion (empathy): The action of understanding, being aware of, being sensitive to, and vicariously experiencing the feelings, thoughts, and experience of another.

 2) Kindness (direct action): The quality or state of being kind.

Kind (adjective) — Having or showing a gentle nature and a desire to help others; wanting and liking to do good things and to bring happiness to others.

 3) Humility (i.e., it’s not about you): The quality or state of not thinking you’re better than other people.

Humble — Not proud; not thinking of yourself as better than other people; given or said in a way that shows you do not think you are better than other people; showing that you do not think of yourself as better than other people.

 4) Gentleness/meekness/quiet strength: The quality or state of being gentle.

Gentle — Having or showing a kind and quiet nature; not harsh or violent; not hard or forceful; not strong or harsh in effect or quality.

 5) Patience/bear with one another: The capacity, habit, or fact of being patient.

Patient — Able to remain calm and not become annoyed when waiting for a long time or when dealing with problems or difficult people; done in a careful way over a long period of time without hurrying.

 6) Forgiveness (yes, it means letting go): The act of forgiving someone or something.

Forgive — To stop feeling anger toward (someone who has done something wrong); to stop blaming (someone); to stop feeling anger about (something): to forgive someone for (something wrong); to stop requiring payment of (money that is owed).

 7) Love (agape, unconditional): A feeling of strong or constant affection for a person.
