Discussion for Leviticus 23

  • Donna Cromb
    Acts 2:1 refers to Lev 23:15 and tells it was 50 days after Passover when Jesus Christ died and arose, but am I missing something? I don't see how the unleavened bread for 7 days, 7 days of fire offerings, or 7 Sabbaths have to do with Pentecost and the coming of the Holy Spirit. Sand how does that relate to Easter? My Bible also says to look at Deut 16:9 and 20:16. Why when it is just a prophecy
  • Shirley
    I agree that the leavened/unleavened bread do show us our physical and spiritual nature. We truly need to render our hearts to Christ such that He can do a good work in us. The Old and New Testaments are related to each other. We see Christ throughout the entire books but more so in the New Testatment.
  • A disciple
    The teaching I've received about "leaven," is close to what you're talking about. Yeast added to the dough makes it rise and swell, and fills up the whole loaf. It doesn't have to be outright sinning, that takes over our inner life; but things that come out of self, without Scriptural support; like natural "human thinking" God made us to be intelligent, but it must be used in subjection to truth.

    April (leaven) - The leaven in the O.T. was a type of sin - sin gets in you for one little thing, maybe tobacco and SPREADS to alcohol, drugs, sex, abuse of others, and on 'n on. Egypt was also a type of sin; the Israelites wee taken out of Egypt by God. We cannot, forever, get physical sins out of our lives; only the Lord can. Nor can we remit orig. sin from Adam 'n Eve - only God can. Acts 2:38

    Hello, I was curious if anyone could shed some light on me thinking, unleavened bread was a no no, because in a symbolic way, GOD is what raises us up, like baking soda and other rising agent, it helps the bread to rise, therefore, GOD is the rising agent?, so when he brought his children out of Egypt he was their rising agent. I have currently just started reading the bible on my own, been awhile

    Lev. 23:17 - " ... two wave loaves ... they shall be baken with leaven." Two wave loaves is the prophecy of the Jews and Gentiles coming together in Acts. The 'leaven' is the SPREADING of the Gospel they undertook.
