IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT THESE INTERPRETATIONS DO NOT REPLACE THE READING OF THE BIBLE BUT MERELY PLACE VARIOUS MATTERS IN THE CORRECT CONTEXT AND HIGHLIGHT VERY IMPORTANT POINTS!!
MOST IMPORTANTLY, THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE, JEHOVAH GOD ONLY “GIVES” US WHAT WE AS HUMANS “NEED” TO KNOW ABOUT HIM, HIS INTENTIONS, HIS PLANS AND HIS DESIRES!!
CONTINUING WITH THE BOOK OF LEVITICUS
LEVITICUS Chapter 24
A very brief interpretation of Chapter 24 will follow:
This Chapter opens with preparations for permanent candle lighting in the Tabernacle; and cakes and other food delights that had to be prepared; and who could partake thereof and on which days.
From Verse 10 the Chapter tells of a son born to an Egyptian father and an Israeli mother that blasphemed JEHOVAH GOD and was duly stoned to death; that was to act as a warning that ALL who blasphemed JEHOVAH GOD or HIS HOLY NAME would receive the same punishment.
The rest of the Chapter warns that the following procedures are to be implemented:
Any person that curses JEHOVAH GOD or HIS HOLY NAME must be put to death;
Any person that kills another human must be put to death;
Any person that kills another person’s beast must appropriately compensate the person;
Whatever wrong one person does to another, irrespective of who the person is, must be similarly afflicted; namely, “Breach for breach, eye for eye, tooth for tooth: as he hath caused a blemish in a man, so shall it be done to him again.” etc.
ALL THE COMMANDMENTS, LAWS and PROCEDURES WERE GIVEN BY JEHOVAH GOD; AND HE FREQUENTLY THROUGHOUT THE BOOK OF LEVITICUS ENSURED THAT MOSES AND AARON, AND WE TODAY, ARE FULLY AWARE THAT HE WAS THE SOURCE THEREOF!!!
My Next Post should cover LEVITICUS Chapter 25.
