Tuesday, December 12/25, 2012: Heb 9:8-10,15-23, Mark 8:22-26
- passage: Heb 9:8-9:10
The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was
not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing:
Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered
both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service
perfect, as pertaining to the conscience; Which stood only in meats
and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them
until the time of reformation.
passage: Heb 9:15-9:23
And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by
means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were
under the first testament, they which are called might receive the
promise of eternal inheritance. For where a testament is, there must
also of necessity be the death of the testator. For a testament is
of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all
while the testator liveth. Whereupon neither the first testament was
dedicated without blood. For when Moses had spoken every precept to
all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and
of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled
both the book, and all the people, Saying, This is the blood of the
testament which God hath enjoined unto you. Moreover he sprinkled
with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry.
And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without
shedding of blood is no remission. It was therefore necessary that
the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these;
but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.
passage: Mark 8:22-8:26
And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him, and
besought him to touch him. And he took the blind man by the hand,
and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put
his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought. And he looked up,
and said, I see men as trees, walking. After that he put his hands
again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and
saw every man clearly. And he sent him away to his house, saying,
Neither go into the town, nor tell it to any in the town.
