Reading along with us in Exodus? Here’s today’s reading:

Exodus 29 (ESV)

“Now this is what you shall do to them to consecrate them, that they may serve me as priests. Take one bull of the herd and two rams without blemish, 2 and unleavened bread, unleavened cakes mixed with oil, and unleavened wafers smeared with oil. You shall make them of fine wheat flour. 3 You shall put them in one basket and bring them in the basket, and bring the bull and the two rams. 4 You shall bring Aaron and his sons to the entrance of the tent of meeting and wash them with water. 5 Then you shall take the garments, and put on Aaron the coat and the robe of the ephod, and the ephod, and the breastpiece, and gird him with the skillfully woven band of the ephod. 6 And you shall set the turban on his head and put the holy crown on the turban. 7 You shall take the anointing oil and pour it on his head and anoint him. 8 Then you shall bring his sons and put coats on them, 9 and you shall gird Aaron and his sons with sashes and bind caps on them. And the priesthood shall be theirs by a statute forever. Thus you shall ordain Aaron and his sons.”… Continue Reading

  1. I always wondered if Moses read back all the instructions to God to see if he had it all scribed correctly.
    46And they shall know that I am the Lord their God, who brought them out of the land of Egypt that I might dwell among them. I am the Lord their God.❤️

  2. Interesting to select a specific group to be priests they were chosen

    Obtained this status and responsibility without earning it. Looks a lot like grace

  3. That grace jumps out at me, Jim as well, especially considering Aaron being chosen as the top priest with all his faults. As the cliché puts it so well, God does not call the qualified, but qualifies the called. and this is what we find here. Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sin or the sanctification of the priests and there garments. It is interesting to see where the blood is applied: on the altar, on the people, and on the clothing. It is also interesting to see how some portions of the offering were given to the priests as provision for them.
