Leviticus Chapter 8 Discussion

    Lev. Ch. 8 continued....

    as the high priest. After preparing and consecrating all of the offerings, Moses took some anointing oil and some blood from the altar where the sacrifices were burning and sprinkled it on Aaron, on his garments, on his sons, and on their garments. Thus fully consecrating them from head to toe. We, too, are anointed with the blood of Jesus and the oil of the Holy Spirit to consecrate us to God for the service He has determined for us to do in our lives. The priests served every day. So do we.

    After all of this Moses told Aaron to boil the flesh of the ram at the door of the tabernacle and then he and his sons were to eat it with the bread that remained of the consecrated bread. They were to eat in within the tabernacle enclosure and they could not leave the tabernacle for 7 days. Thus they were atoned for and consecrated to YHWH. Their "dwelling" was in the tent of YHWH for this time.

    We are "in Christ" when we are saved. We are set apart for service to God for the rest of our lives just as the priest were to spend all of their lives serving YHWH through these ordinances and rites.

    Jesus is our High Priest. His human nature was consecrated to the Father from the moment of His conception in Mary. He lived His human life in obedience to God without ever sinning, so He was the Perfect One to which all of these sacrifices and anointings shadowed. The chapter ends with Aaron and his sons doing all that the LORD had commanded. That is what Jesus did, only He did this for all of His human life, never faltering, never disobeying, never unwilling. He said that His food was to do the will of His Father. Praise be to Him. He is everything we need to be saved and to be made priests unto God!

    of the world, assenting to the eternal plan and covenant made between the members of the Godhead for the redemption of sinful humans. Jesus agreed to cloth his Deity with humanity to become the perfect sacrifice for atonement for sin, the perfect burnt offering for the mediation of the covenant between mankind and YHWH, and the perfect offering that consecrated all believers as priest unto God. All these sacrifices were done upon the cross of Christ.

    Moses took some of the blood of the consecrated ram and anointed Aaron and his sons with it, placing it on their right ear, right thumb, and big toe of their right foot.

    He took one loave from the basket of unleavened bread, and one cake, and one wafer and put them upon the fat on the right thigh of the sacrifice. Moses gave these breads to Aaron and his sons, placing them in their hands and they waved them as a wave offering before the Lord. Then Moses put them on the burnt offering where they were consumed. This most likely represents that the priests are to have clean, consecrated hands, refined by fire (so to speak). Perhaps placing the blood on the ear, thumb, and foot represents that the priests are to hear from God, serve God with their hands, and walk with God in a holy way.

    Moses took the breast of the ram and waved it before the Lord.

    To go back to prior to the sacrifices, Moses dressed Aaron in the high priest garments and his sons in priestly garments. Moses took the anointing oil and anointed the tabernacle and all that was in it, thus consecrating them to YHWH. He sprinkled oil on the altar seven times, and anointed all of its utensils, the laver and its base. He then poured anointing oil upon the head of Aaron to consecrate him...

    After the offerings/sacrifices, Moses washed Aaron and his sons with water from the laver anointed Aaron and his sons with oil and blood. He anointed the altar and the laver and all of the other furnishings with blood. He

    Leviticus Chapter 8

    In this chapter God puts into practice all that He had instructed Moses and the people of concerning offerings and sacrifices.

    This whole chapter is about consecrating the tabernacle and furnishings, the high priests and his sons, and the animals to be sacrificed.

    The tent of meeting was completed and set up. Moses is designated by God to perform the rites of consecration. He is acting in the stead of God in this work. Moses alone had spent time on Mt. Sinai in the Presence of YHWH for 40 days and 40 nights. He alone was equipped to represent God to the Israelites.

    There were four offerings/sacrifices given unto God in this chapter: First the sin sacrifice for the sins of Aaron and his sons. Then the burnt offering. Next, the consecration offering. And last, the grain offering.

    Aaron and his sons needed to have their sins atoned for before they could be consecrated for the work of priesthood. We, too, need to have our sins atoned for before we can rightly serve God. Jesus is our atoning sacrifice for our sins.

    The burnt offering was made. This was the first one of the many to follow that will be offered morning and evening for as long as God determined (these offerings stopped when Jerusalem was sacked and made desolate by the Romans in 70 A.D., with the temple bring destroyed for good). Jesus is our Mediator, like the burnt offering, which opens up the way for anyone to come to the Father. The Israelites and especially the priests, could not just waltz up to YHWH and perform priestly duties without this offering being done after their sin offering was offered. We all need a mediator between us and the Father in order for us to approach Him. This Mediator ever opens the way to the Father.

    Next, the consecration offering is made. This offering was only for Aaron and the priests when they are initially consecrated before YHWH to begin to perform their priestly duties. Jesus is our High Priest, consecrated from before the foundations....

    access through a mans heart is only successful when He has knowledge of it! You cannot enter without His permission! When, one tries to control the heart of another, and that person knows it! It will only make him stronger. Stronger in faith and the knowledge that he has been chosen to serve the one who has died for Him. awake! your redemption draws nigh!

    Leviticus 8:30 actually says, "And Moses took of the anointing oil, and of the blood which was upon the altar, and sprinkled it upon Aaron, and upon his garments, and upon his sons, and upon his sons' garments with him; and sanctified Aaron, and his garments, and his sons, and his sons' garments with him."

    Maybe you're getting that information from some other source. It says that Moses took the anointing oil & the blood (of the animal that was sacrificed) & sprinkled those elements upon Aaron & his son's garments to sanctify (set apart) them for their office. If you read further in the Scriptures, you'll see that Aaron & his sons lived on for a long time after that sanctifying work.
  • Dmetri on Leviticus 8 - 3 years ago
    In verse 30, it says the Lord commanded Moses to sacrifice Aaron and his sons?
  • BSP on Leviticus 8 - 3 years ago
    The last verse in this chapter shows that Aaron and his sons were obedient to Jehovah God and this resulted in blessings.

    Moses is the writer of the first five books in the Bible. He is a type of Christ. He was God's rep to Israel. He appeared with Jesus on the mount of Transfiguration..The law came by Moses, grace and truth by Jesus Christ. Not enough room or time to answer your question fully. But study the life of Moses and and I hope you get saved if you're not. God bless you.

    Moses and Aaron was brothers, the sons of Levi. God choose Moses to led the people, even though he could be a priest also.
  • Sunday Oladimeji on Leviticus 8 - 4 years ago
    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.
  • Desmond on Leviticus 8 - 5 years ago
    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 on Leviticus 8 - 7 years ago
    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.
  • Beverley johnson on Leviticus 8 - 9 years ago
    Leviticus Chapter 8 teaches many things. It teaches that during Moses reign rituals were constant. There were rituals for peace offerings, quilt offerings, sin offerings,burnt offerings,grain offerings. Blood from goats and sheep was shed to accomodate these offerings. Today these rituals are not necessary because Jesus Christ has shed His Blood for the atonement of all sins and blood sacrifices. He has paid the penalty for His chosen people and the Gentiles. it also teaches that Moses was obedient to God when he implemented all the offerings to the Lord. it is also to be noted that blood was used to sanctify the alter. Today prayer has been used for sanctification instead of the shedding of blood. The Lord Jesus has paid for it by His Blood.Thank you Jesus.

    Rosetta If you look at chapter 7 33 34 theses verses also refer to the right leg. In verse 34, it is refered to along with the breast portion. This leads me to believe reference is made to the "shoulder " portion of the animal which is close to the breast also attached to a leg . I hope this helps.

  • Joy Guess on Leviticus 8 - 10 years ago
    II is obvious that we should give our very best to the Lord i.e. service, offering, dedication and faithfulness. When we do this, we should not boast or brag about what we do but do it for God to get the glory.
  • Rosetta Seabrooks on Leviticus 8:25 - 10 years ago
    In some versions of King James of Leviticus 8:25 the right thigh is referenced and the right shoulder in other translations. These are clearly different parts of the animal. What is the correct translation/inteprtation?
