Leviticus 23:26-31 commands the Israelites to hold an annual event that will atone for the sins of the priesthood and the nation, and give the High Priest access to God for that day. The finer details for the rites are found in Leviticus chapter 16. Hebrews 4:14-16 describes that Jesus [...]

Bible / Scripture

By |2022-05-04T09:13:20+10:004th May, 2022|Categories: Nuggets|0 Comments

As hard as it is to believe, Jesus did not speak with a red tongue or use ‘thee’ and ‘thou’ every time. In fact our “Holy Bible” is actually an anthology of books. Those books written prior to AD (Old Testament) were written in Hebrew (and translated into Greek from [...]

The scriptural terms ‘binding and loosening’ are not to be confused with acts involving ropes and leather, except in an allegorical sense. In traditional Jewish understanding the terms are used in a legal sense, indicating being restrained by law or free. In Matthew 16:16-19 Peter identifies Jesus as the Messiah, [...]

Circumcision

From ‘First Fruits of Zion (ffoz.org)’ “Moses told the children of Israel to circumcise their hearts: "So circumcise your heart, and stiffen your neck no longer." (Deuteronomy 10:16). That’s a strange image. Circumcision refers to the removal of the foreskin. What does it mean to “circumcise your heart”? In Deuteronomy [...]
