Disciples of Jesus Christ’s Memorial Parsha


Sabbath, March 27th 2010 at the book of Leviticus, in Chapters 6 thru 8

Leviticus 7
 1Likewise this is the law of the trespass offering: it is most holy.
 2In the place where they kill the burnt offering shall they kill the trespass offering: and the blood thereof shall he sprinkle round about upon the altar.
 3And he shall offer of it all the fat thereof; the rump, and the fat that covereth the inwards,
 4And the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, which is by the flanks, and the caul that is above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall he take away:
 5And the priest shall burn them upon the altar for an offering made by fire unto the LORD: it is a trespass offering.
 6Every male among the priests shall eat thereof: it shall be eaten in the holy place: it is most holy.
 7As the sin offering is, so is the trespass offering: there is one law for them: the priest that maketh atonement therewith shall have it.
 8And the priest that offereth any man’s burnt offering, even the priest shall have to himself the skin of the burnt offering which he hath offered.
 9And all the meat offering that is baken in the oven, and all that is dressed in the fryingpan, and in the pan, shall be the priest’s that offereth it.
 10And every meat offering, mingled with oil, and dry, shall all the sons of Aaron have, one as much as another.
 11And this is the law of the sacrifice of peace offerings, which he shall offer unto the LORD.
 12If he offer it for a thanksgiving, then he shall offer with the sacrifice of thanksgiving unleavened cakes mingled with oil, and unleavened wafers anointed with oil, and cakes mingled with oil, of fine flour, fried.
 13Besides the cakes, he shall offer for his offering leavened bread with the sacrifice of thanksgiving of his peace offerings.
 14And of it he shall offer one out of the whole oblation for an heave offering unto the LORD, and it shall be the priest’s that sprinkleth the blood of the peace offerings.
 15And the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings for thanksgiving shall be eaten the same day that it is offered; he shall not leave any of it until the morning.
 16But if the sacrifice of his offering be a vow, or a voluntary offering, it shall be eaten the same day that he offereth his sacrifice: and on the morrow also the remainder of it shall be eaten:
 17But the remainder of the flesh of the sacrifice on the third day shall be burnt with fire.
 18And if any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings be eaten at all on the third day, it shall not be accepted, neither shall it be imputed unto him that offereth it: it shall be an abomination, and the soul that eateth of it shall bear his iniquity.
 19And the flesh that toucheth any unclean thing shall not be eaten; it shall be burnt with fire: and as for the flesh, all that be clean shall eat thereof.
 20But the soul that eateth of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace offerings, that pertain unto the LORD, having his uncleanness upon him, even that soul shall be cut off from his people.
 21Moreover the soul that shall touch any unclean thing, as the uncleanness of man, or any unclean beast, or any abominable unclean thing, and eat of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace offerings, which pertain unto the LORD, even that soul shall be cut off from his people.
 22And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
 23Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, Ye shall eat no manner of fat, of ox, or of sheep, or of goat.
 24And the fat of the beast that dieth of itself, and the fat of that which is torn with beasts, may be used in any other use: but ye shall in no wise eat of it.
 25For whosoever eateth the fat of the beast, of which men offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD, even the soul that eateth it shall be cut off from his people.
 26Moreover ye shall eat no manner of blood, whether it be of fowl or of beast, in any of your dwellings.
 27Whatsoever soul it be that eateth any manner of blood, even that soul shall be cut off from his people.
 28And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
 29Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, “He that offereth the sacrifice of his peace offerings unto the LORD shall bring his oblation unto the LORD of the sacrifice of his peace offerings.
 30His own hands shall bring the offerings of the LORD made by fire, the fat with the breast, it shall he bring, that the breast may be waved for a wave offering before the LORD.” (Leviticus 7, King James Version)

Mark 7:1-23
 1Then came together unto him the Pharisees, and certain of the scribes, which came from Jerusalem.
 2And when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled, that is to say, with unwashen, hands, they found fault.
 3For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders.
 4And when they come from the market, except they wash, they eat not. And many other things there be, which they have received to hold, as the washing of cups, and pots, brasen vessels, and of tables.
 5Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, “Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashen hands?”
 6He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
 7Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
 8For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.
 9And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.
 10For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death:
 11But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free.
 12And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother;
 13Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.
 14And when he had called all the people unto him, he said unto them, Hearken unto me every one of you, and understand:
 15There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man.
 16If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.
 17And when he was entered into the house from the people, his disciples asked him concerning the parable.
 18And he saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him;
 19Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats?
 20And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man.
 21For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
 22Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
 23All these evil things come from within, and defile the man. (Mark 7:1-23, King James Version)

Matthew 12:4
 4How he entered into the house of God, and did eat the shewbread, which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them which were with him, but only for the priests? (Matthew 12:4, King James Version)

Matthew 26:1-29
 1And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said unto his disciples,
 2Ye know that after two days is the feast of the passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified.
 3Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas,
 4And consulted that they might take Jesus by subtilty, and kill him.
 5But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar among the people.
 6Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper,
 7There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at meat.
 8But when his disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, To what purpose is this waste?
 9For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor.
 10When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me.
 11For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always.
 12For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial.
 13Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her.
 14Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests,
 15And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver.
 16And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.
 17Now the first day of the feast of unleavened bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover?
 18And he said, Go into the city to such a man, and say unto him, The Master saith, My time is at hand; I will keep the passover at thy house with my disciples.
 19And the disciples did as Jesus had appointed them; and they made ready the passover.
 20Now when the even was come, he sat down with the twelve.
 21And as they did eat, he said, Verily I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.
 22And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began every one of them to say unto him, Lord, is it I?
 23And he answered and said, He that dippeth his hand with me in the dish, the same shall betray me.
 24The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been born.
 25Then Judas, which betrayed him, answered and said, Master, is it I? He said unto him, Thou hast said.
 26And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.
 27And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;
 28For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
 29But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.
 30And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives. (Matthew 26, King James Version)

Thalia’s commentary:
Like the sin offering in Chapter six of the book of Leviticus, the Trespass Offering shall be killed by the door of the tabernacle of meeting (Leviticus 1:5; Leviticus 8:2). The blood shall be sprinkled all around the altar. The priest shall burn on the altar the burnt offering that is made by fire to the LORD. The offering of the trespass are listed throughout the verses of this chapter, Leviticus 8.

The male among the priest may eat the trespass offering, and shall be eaten in a holy place. The trespass offering shall be eaten in the most holy place. Next, the trespass offering is like the sin offering because the law is that the priest that makes the atonement with it shall have it. However the priest that offers the burnt offering, the skin, which he has offered shall be his. Likewise, the grain offering shall be to the priest as well, if it is prepared in a pan. Every grain offering shall belong to Aaron and his Sons (Leviticus 2:10, 16). In short you will see that Aarons descendants were kept from their rightful place, at Solomon’s Temple. Like John the Baptist, Jesus also is a descendant of Aaron and when he arrived on the scene he didnot like the traditions of the Pharisees, and the fact that behaviour was measured up with their fathers and these were people who were not afraid to kill a servant of God, a Prophet – the Nevim. John the Baptist was not afforded the elaborate priestly garments as was so commanded unto Moses , see descripton of John the Baptist and his call for repentance as it relates to the grain offering (Matthew 3:4-12). Jesus warned the disciples of the leaven of Pharisee, Sadducees and Herod (Matthew 16 and Mark 8). The Apostle Paul certainly attributed to religious work being closed down, and was the final nail in the coffin.

Jesus spoke openly about the death of John the Baptist, also a descendant of Aaron, which is recorded in the Gospel and is found in Gospel according to Luke in Chapter 11 and the Gospel according to Matthew in Chapter 11.

Matthew 11: Jesus and John the Baptist

1After Jesus had finished instructing his twelve disciples, he went on from there to teach and preach in the towns of Galilee.[a]
2When John heard in prison what Christ was doing, he sent his disciples 3to ask him, “Are you the one who was to come, or should we expect someone else?”
4Jesus replied, “Go back

and report to John what you hear and see: 5The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy[b]are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor. 6Blessed is the man who does not fall away on account of me.”
7As John’s disciples were leaving, Jesus began to speak to the crowd about John: “What did you go out into the desert to see? A reed swayed by the wind? 8If not, what did you go out to see? A man dressed in fine clothes? No, those who wear fine clothes are in kings’ palaces. 9Then what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more than a prophet. 10This is the one about whom it is written:
” ‘I will send my messenger ahead of you,
who will prepare your way before you.'[c] 11I tell you the truth: Among those born of women there has not risen anyone greater than John the Baptist; yet he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. 12From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it. 13For all the Prophets and the Law prophesied until John. 14And if you are willing to accept it, he is the Elijah who was to come. 15He who has ears, let him hear.
Also leavened bread shall be offered with the sacrifice of thanksgiving of his peace offerings of unleavened cakes and anointed with oil, or cakes of blended flour mixed with oil. One of the cakes shall be the heave offering from the unleavened wafer or the unleavened cakes, to the LORD. The heave offering belongs to the priest that sprinkles the blood of the peace offering.

Like the Passover lamb, the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offering for thanksgiving shall be eaten the same day. The law of the peace offering for a vow or a voluntary offering shall also be eaten same day he offers his sacrifice, but on the next day, the second day, the voluntary offering can also be eaten. The flesh that is discarded shall be burned with fire (Leviticus 8:15, 17, 19). The flesh of the sacrifice that is eaten on the third day shall be imputed guilt and is an abomination to him that offers the sacrifice of the voluntary offerings (Leviticus 8:16); and the peace offering (v.19).

While, Jesus is perfect, he had no one to show himself, Jesus is always clean. As a matter of fact, Jesus knew that his life would be short term. Just as the prophet had foretold in 1st Samuel, Chapters 2 through 4, that Jesus is the Lord, and he is the only person that ever walked the earth and eradicated unclean spirits. Yet there are people that live in the anguish of other plagues and are disillusioned with the challenges of life, the fire darts of hell in the form of poverty; disease; illness; uncleanness; hunger; homelessness; abuse; persecution; discrimination; persecution; oppression.

In the eighth chapter of the book of Leviticus the people of the congregation, the children of Israel are commanded that if a person is unclean and eats the flesh of the peace offering shall be cut off from his people. In addition, the person that touches any unclean thing or any abominable thing shall be cut off because the person of our congregation, the children of Israel shall be cut off because you ate the LORD’s sacrifice.

Leviticus 7:11-21: The Law of the Peace Offerings.

The law of the peace offering that is offered for a thanksgiving shall be sacrificed with the unleavened mixed with oil cakes anointed with oil etc. Also the leavened bread shall be offered with the sacrifice of thanksgiving of his peace offering of unleavened cakes anointed with oil, or cakes of blended flour mixed with oil. One of the cakes shall be the heave offering, from the unleavened wafer or the unleavened wafer or unleavened cakes, to the LORD. The heave offering belongs to the priest that sprinkles the blood of the peace offering.

Like the Passover lamb, the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offering for thanksgiving shall be eaten the same day he offers his sacrifice, but on the next voluntary shall also be eaten on the next day. The flesh that is discarded shall be barred with fire (Leviticus 7:15, 17, 19). The flesh of the sacrifice that is eaten on the third day shall impute guilt and an abomination to him that offers the sacrifice of the voluntary offering (Leviticus 7:16) and the peace offering (Leviticus 7:19).

A person that is unclean and eats the flesh of the peace offering shall be cut off from his people. In addition, the person that touches any unclean thing or any abominable unclean thing shall be cut off because you ate the LORD’s sacrifice.

See Jesus taught that if you are going to violate any of these regulations to set up your man made traditions, then there is no way that a dirty cup can defile you. The regulations were established by God and commanded by Moses, unto you to receive and hear the word of God. You choose not to obey God’s commandments because you want to establish your own man made traditions. As a consequence, Jesus and John the Baptist walked the earth some 2000 years ago and received nothing, as commanded by God, unto Moses and unto you and I. Thank God that Aaron and Sons believed in God and were justified by their faith; because many of the children of Israel refused to give the priest their offerings.

Leviticus 7:22-27: Eating Fat and Blood Forbidden

The children of Israel are commanded that you shall not eat the fat and blood, and you shall abstain from the fat of the ox, sheep or goat. The person that eats the fat of the animal that is used for an offering to the LORD, by men, shall be cut off from his people.

During the Passover (Pesach), a Rabbi may advise you to abstain from meat. However, the fat of cattle sheep and goats shall not be eaten. The fat shall be an offering to the LORD made by fire. However, the fat of the cattle – the sheep and the goats – shall not be eaten. The fat that chokes the lust of life shall be offered by fire before the LORD. The slaves of Egypt, in the house of bondage had come along way from slavery and serving before wooden, bronze, and stone idols; and the death of their first born.

A person that is unclean and eats the fat of the offering to the LORD shall be cut off from his people. And lastly, you shall be cut off from your people if you eat the blood of any bird or animal.

Leviticus 7:28-38: The Priest share

The fellowship of the LORD shall be brought from his sacrifice to the LORD. The fellowship is something that you have valued and interacted with which is in this case from the flock of the herd: the animal fat and the breast. The breast is waved before the LORD, and this is called the wave offering (Leviticus 7:30). Like the sacred anointing oil and the holy fragrance incense (frankincense) eating fat of an animal found dead or torn by an animal shall not be eaten or consumed by a human, a child of the Israelites. Lastly, the fat that shall be offered by fire to the LORD, shall be cut off from his people (Leviticus 7:25, 27).

The priest shall burn the fat of the wave offering n the altar; and the breast shall belong to Aaron and sons. The breast shall be waved before the LORD (Exodus 29:22-28). The right thigh of your fellowship offering shall be given from the sacrifices of your peace offering (Exodus 29:27-28; Leviticus 10:15; and Leviticus 7:31, 34), the sons of Aaron that offer the blood of the peace offering, and the fat shall have the right shoulder for his part in verses (zevach shl’lamim = sacrifice of well being, called shelamim) Leviticus 3:5,11,16,17: – Verse 5 Then Aaron’s sons are to burn it on the altar on top of the burnt offering that is on the burning wood, as an offering made by fire, an aroma pleasing to the LORD. Verse 11 The priest shall burn them on the altar as food, an offering made to the LORD by fire. Verse 16 The priest shall burn them on the altar as food, an offering made by fire, a pleasing aroma. All the fat is the LORD’s. Verse 17 ” ‘This is a lasting ordinance for the generations to come, wherever you live: You must not eat any fat or any blood.’ “

However, the wave of the breast and the heave should is taken from the children of Israel from off of the sacrifices of their peace offerings which is given to Aaron and Sons by a statute forever from among the children of Israel. The children of Israel may forego meat; however, the descendants of Aaron shall eat meat on the Passover. Anyone that eats the fat that can be used, the fat or the blood of an offering made by fire, that shall be used in the sacrifices of the peace offering – shall be cut off from his people (Exodus 29:27-28).

Next, the priestly garments and the wave (breast) offering and heaver (shoulder) offering is the anointed portion of the sons of Aaron out of the offerings of the LORD made by fire on the same day when Moses presented the priesthood through encouragement and exhortation to Aaron and sons (Exodus 28:4; Exodus 31:10). The everlasting priesthood can not be replaced another religion like Mormonism or Hinduism, and the descendants of Aaron are commanded by God unto Moses to appoint them into the office of the Priesthood, and ordained; the consecration of the priest lasted for seven days (Exodus 27:21; Exodus 29:7,40-43; Exodus 30:30; Exodus 40:15). If we were in a time capsule on Thursday, April 1st, 2010, today would be the fourth day of the inauguration of Israel’s first priest.

To conclude, the anointed portion of Aaron and sons compasses all the law of the burnt offering, the meat (meal or grain) offering, and sin offering, and the trespass offering, and the consecrations and of the sacrifices of the peace offerings. The children of Israel were commanded by God, and the word of God came unto Moses, and to me, saying “to offer oblations unto the LORD, in the wilderness of Mount Sinai” (Leviticus 6:9; Leviticus 1:2-3; Leviticus 3:1, 17).

Sin (chatat) – Leviticus 4 and Leviticus 6:24-30
