Greetings one and all. So sorry I took a little break there on Friday. Did not plan to do that. I got to spend some time with my parents when they came to visit Jacob, Katie, Allie, and I over the weekend. They came in Thursday night and had to leave Saturday afternoon to get ready for Sunday. It is always great to see them and spend time with them.
With that, let me conclude with what I learned from this past semester with a look at the Sacrificial System. During this class we looked indepth into the sacrifices in Leviticus. All of them are a prototype of Jesus and His ultimate sacrifice for us. We also looked the Passover sacrifice in Exodus 12 and at the Red Heifer sacrifice in Numbers 19. We were to write a paper on either the Passover or the Red Heifer. Several of my classmates wrote their research paper on the Red Heifer. I wrote mine on the Passover. It was so interesting reading other peoples’ take on the Passover and what it means for us as Christians. I was facinated with listening to my classmates talk about writing their papers on the Red Heifer and what it means for us as Christians. It was great! Both of these Old Testament sacrifices shed a great deal of significant light for us as Christians. The Old Testament still has a lot to teach us even as New Testament Christians. A good study of the Levitical sacrifices, the Passover in Exodus 12 and the Red Heifer sacrifice in Numbers 19 will help us appreciate Jesus and His sacrifice so much better. Jesus’ sacrifice did for us what all of these sacrifices could never do, totally and completely forgive sins.
Tomorrow I’ll write about our courses for this next term that starts Monday morning. And I’ll do much better of writing at least one blog each week. Thank you all so much for reading about me this week. Thank you all for your love, support, and prayers. God bless you all. Grace and Peace.
