Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 8:31


8:31 The flesh - That which was left of the ram, and particularly the breast, which was said to be Moses's part, #Lev 8:29|, and by him was given to Aaron, that he and his sons might eat of it, in token that they and only they should have the right to do so for the future.

    It is the anointing that makes the difference. O Lord anoint me for holiness sanctification in Jesus' name because without holiness, no one will see the Lord.

    To me,Aaron took over from Moses because of Moses lack of willingness,where as Aaron though in the future failed,just like any other person,but he is always willing in heart to carry out tasks assigned him. So Aaron's character would be duplicated in his descendants after him.

    I'm just wondering how come God didn't choose Moses to be a high priest, why Aaron and not Moses...
  • Irene123
    Lev.8:7 - "And he put upon him the coat,.....and clothed him with the robe, and put the ephod upon him ....."; The garments that the high priest wore reflected his role as the symbol of Jesus our savior. The coat represented the MAN Jesus; the robe represented the DIVINE Jesus, and the ephod represented his giving of Himself as a sinless sacrifice. The ephod had the names of ALL God's people.

    I want to bring the attention of your readers to Leviticus Chapter 8:22-23. Moses under the anointing and unction of the holy spirit consecrated Aaron and his son with the blood. He symbolically anointing our High priest Jesus Christ hwwen christ was on the cross, the blood that came down from his head after the thorns were placed on his head, down to the tip of his ears. When he was sword went into his side, the blood came down from his sides and landed on his toes as we saw Moses did to Aaron and his son. Amazing how God demonstrated the action on the cross as far as then. compare the anointing of Aaron and his son with the the events on the cross. Leviticus 8:23 "And he slew it and Moses took of the blood of it, and put it upon the tip of Aaron 's right ear, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot "

    What I have learnt from Leviticus Chapter 8 is that during Moses reign blood was used as a sin offering to get forgiveness. After Jesus shed His Blood , animals ' blood was no longer necessary. Jesus paid the price for all sins with His Blood.
