Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 9:1


9:1 On the eighth day - Namely, from the day of his consecration, or when the seven days of his consecration were ended. The eighth day is famous in scripture for the perfecting and purifying both of men and beasts. See #Lev 12:2|,3 14:8,9,10 15:13,14 22:27. And the elders of Israel - All the congregation were called to be witnesses of Aaron's installment into his office, to prevent their murmurings and contempt; which being done, the elders were now sufficient to be witnesses of his first execution of his office.

    Ed, yes we are saved by grace. But the law to come first which is perfect but make no remedy for error or sin. Therefore, like the apostle Paul said in Gat. 3:24. "Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith. Also, Eph. 2:8,9 says, "For by grace are ye saved, through faith and that not of yourselves it is the gift of God: v9 not of work, lest any man should boast ". God bless us all and in the understanding of his Word. Glory be to Jehovah in the highest through Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen!
