Day 39

Leviticus 22-23

Chapter 22

Verse 10 “No one outside a priest’s family may eat the sacred offerings. Even guests and hired workers in a priest’s home are not allowed to eat them.” I rest my case.

In verse 24 I had to look up to figure out where testicles figure into this verse. The KJV makes no reference to testicles, but modern translations do. “If an animal has damaged testicles or is castrated, you may not offer it to the Lord.” (NLT) The Hebrew-English translation says “That which hath its stones bruised, or crushed, or torn, or cut, ye shall not offer unto the LORD”. Interesting! Why would the KJV omit this reference? It’s a bit late to be squeamish.

Chapter 23

What do most Jews do about work on all these festivals?

And it’s amazing, that when I looked for an image or chart to illustrate these festivals, most of those that I found attempted to somehow tie these feasts to Christianity or the second coming of Christ. Is there any reference to Jesus anywhere in Leviticus??? Not! But the intent to create a connection is evident here:
