Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 9:19


9:19 He took the blood of calves - Or heifers. And of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop - All these circumstances are not particularly mentioned in that chapter of Exodus, but are supposed to be already known from other passages of Moses. And the book itself - Which contained all he had said. And sprinkled all the people - Who were near him. The blood was mixed with water to prevent its growing too stiff for sprinkling; perhaps also to typify that blood and water, #John 19:34|. #Ex 24:7|,8

    Randell Pritchet: I disagree with you for God named Jesus and When Jesus died He did not go to dust as we do, God raised HIM from the grave and HE was seen by many and supped with them. HIS will is written all through the Bible.

    And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.

    Pawan you don't understand. Keep praying for understanding of the scriptures and the Holy Ghost.
  • Myree
    Why is it so many people who say they have die and come back to tell what they saw after being dead??? I just where a person they said was dead in the hospital - but woke up to say he had been to hell and saw satan's eyes.
    The bible doesn't teach that, and Christ died only once for all.
    Hebrew 9: 27-28 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
