July 31, 2017: Daily Bible Reading Commentary for Leviticus 22-24

Commentary:  Chapter 22 continues giving specific instructions to the priests.  Chapter 23 focuses on all the people of Israel, describing the seven feast ordained by the Lord and the importance of the Sabbath.  The feasts, and others not listed here, are described in more detail in other parts of the Scriptures.  The feasts are designed to encourage worship and fellowship, but with a focus on the Lord God.  Each feast also has a prophetic element attached to it: Passover - crucifixion and death of Christ, Unleavened Bread - the fellowship we have with Christ because of His death; Firstfruits - resurrection of Christ; Feast of Weeks/Pentecost - beginning of the church; Feast of Trumpets/Rosh Hashanah - Israel will be brought back into the land; Day of Atonement - the work of Christ upon the cross; and the Feast of Tabernacles - Israel is one again in the land (future).  In chapter 24, the High Priest, Aaron, is charged to keep the lamps burning, while the people were charged with supplying the oil.  We cannot please two masters, but most focus on serving the Lord.

Focus Verses:  23:3  Why is the Sabbath so important?  Many of the important Jewish feasts also recorded revolve around Sabbaths.  Why has the idea of taking a day and worshipping the Lord remained so important?
