Congratulations! We’ve completed three whole books of the Bible! We’re 1/8 of the way through the year as well … don’t worry, other books in the Bible are shorter!

Leviticus 1 — What were the characteristics of burnt offerings? God had a detailed process.

  • Personal
  • Cattle
  • Male
  • Without Blemish
  • Voluntary
  • At the tabernacle
  • Physical touch
  • Atonement
  • Personally killed
  • Blood sprinkled
  • Cut in pieces
  • Burned
  • Washed for a sweet savor

Leviticus 3:17 — The Israelites were forbidden from eating blood, because the life was in the blood (Leviticus 17:11).

Mark 1:30 — A major religion teaches that their clergy must be unmarried; however, we see that Simon (later Peter) had a mother-in-law. Most people with a mother-in-law also have a wife.

Mark 1:34 — Again, Jesus orders the devils to not speak (as we discussed yesterday).

Mark 2:4 — As Vic Eliason used to say, “The press caused problems even back then.”

Patch the Pirate has a song, “The Quartet that Raised the Roof.”

Psalm 35:17 — Are you hurting? Pray this prayer with the Psalmist!

Proverbs 9:13 — Solomon warns against the Foolish Woman’s house of “hospitality” – by vs. 18, the guests are now in the depths of hell.
