Leviticus 9 : 1 – 11 : 47

Kohanim Begin Their Ministry

9 Now it happened on the eighth day that Moses called Aaron, his sons, and the elders of Israel. 2 Then he said to Aaron, “Take a calf from the herd for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering, both without blemish, and offer them before Adonai. 3 You are to speak to Bnei-Yisrael, saying: Take a male goat for a sin offering, along with a calf and a lamb, both yearlings without blemish, for a burnt offering, 4 plus a bull and a ram for fellowship offerings, to sacrifice before Adonai, along with a grain offering mixed with oil. For today Adonai appears to you.”

5 So they brought what Moses commanded before the Tent of Meeting, and the entire congregation drew near and stood before Adonai. 6 Moses said, “This is what Adonai commanded that you shall do, so that the glory of Adonai may appear to you.” 7 Moses said to Aaron, “Draw near to the altar, and bring your sin offering, and your burnt offering, and make atonement for yourself and for the people.[a] Then present the offering for the people, and make atonement for them, as Adonai commanded.”

8 So Aaron drew near to the altar, and slaughtered the calf of the sin offering, which was for himself. 9 The sons of Aaron presented the blood to him. Then he dipped his finger in the blood, dabbed it onto the horns of the altar, and poured out the blood at the base of the altar. 10 But the fat, the kidneys and the cover from the liver of the sin offering he burned up as smoke on the altar, as Adonai had commanded Moses.

2 Samuel 6 : 1 – 7 : 17

Ark Comes Into Jerusalem

6 Now David again gathered all the chosen men of Israel, 30,000. 2 Then David and all the people who were with him arose and set out from Baale-judah to bring up from there the ark of God, which is called by the Name[a], the very Name of Adonai-Tzva’ot who is enthroned between the cheruvim. 3 So they loaded the ark of God on a new cart and carried it out of the house of Abinadab that was on the hill. Uzzah and Ahio, Abinadab’s sons, drove the new cart 4 as they brought it from the house of Abinadab (which was on the hill) with the ark of God, and Ahio was walking in front of the ark.

5 Meanwhile David and the whole house of Israel were celebrating before Adonai with all kinds of instruments made of cypress wood, with harps, lyres, tambourines, three-stringed instruments and cymbals[b]. 6 But when they reached the threshing floor of Nahon, Uzzah reached out to the ark of God and grasped it, for the oxen had stumbled. 7 Then the anger of Adonai was kindled against Uzzah. God struck him down there for his irreverence, so that he died there beside the ark of God. 8 David was upset because of Adonai’s outburst against Uzzah. That place is called Perez-uzzah[c] to this day.

9 So David was frightened of Adonai that day. Then he said, “How can the ark of Adonai come to me?” 10 David was unwilling to move the ark of Adonai to him, to the City of David; instead, David diverted it to the house of Obed-edom the Gittite.

Mark 9 : 2 – 13

A Glimpse of His Glory

2 After six days, Yeshua takes with Him Peter and Jacob and John, and brings them up a high mountain by themselves. And He was transfigured before them. 3 His clothes became radiant and brilliantly white, whiter than any launderer on earth could bleach them. 4 Then Elijah appeared to them with Moses, and they were talking with Yeshua.

5 Peter responds to Yeshua, “Rabbi, it’s good for us to be here. Let’s make three sukkot—one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah.” 6 (He didn’t know what to say, for they were terrified.)

7 Then a cloud came, overshadowing them;[a] and out of the cloud came a voice, “This is My Son, whom I love. Listen to Him!” [b] 8 Suddenly when they looked around, they no longer saw anyone with them except Yeshua.

9 As they were coming down from the mountain, Yeshua ordered them not to tell anyone what they had seen, until the Son of Man rose up from the dead. 10 They kept this word to themselves, discussing among themselves what it is to rise up from the dead. 11 And they questioned Him, saying, “Why do the Torah scholars say that Elijah must come first?”

12 Now He told them, “Indeed Elijah comes first;[c] he restores all things. And how is it written that the Son of Man must suffer much and be treated with contempt? [d] 13 I tell you that Elijah has come, and they did to him whatever they wanted, just as it is written about him.”[e]

Hebrews 8 : 1 - 6

Yeshua, Mediator of a Better Covenant

8 Now here is the main point being said. We do have such a Kohen Gadol, who has taken His seat at the right hand[a] of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens. 2 He is a priestly attendant of the Holies and the true Tent—which Adonai set up, not man. 3 For every kohen gadol is appointed to offer both gifts and sacrifices, so it is necessary for this One also to have something to offer. [b] 4 Now if He were on earth, He would not be a kohen at all, since there are those who offer the gifts according to the Torah. 5 They offer service in a replica[c] and foreshadower of the heavenlies—one that is just as Moses was instructed by God when he was about to complete the tabernacle. For He says, “See that you make everything according to the design that was shown to you on the mountain.” [d] 6 But now Yeshua has obtained a more excellent ministry, insofar as He is the mediator of a better covenant which has been enacted on better promises.
