Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

February 12 - Morning

“But some of them could not celebrate the Passover on that day because they were ceremonially unclean on account of a dead body. So they came to Moses and Aaron that same day and said to Moses, ‘We have become unclean because of a dead body, but why should we be kept from presenting the Lord’s offering with the other Israelites at the appointed time?’

Moses answered them, ‘Wait until I find out what the Lord commands concerning you.’

Then the Lord said to Moses, “Tell the Israelites: ‘When any of you or your descendants are unclean because of a dead body or are away on a journey, they are still to celebrate the Lord’s Passover, but they are to do it on the fourteenth day of the second month at twilight. They are to eat the lamb, together with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. They must not leave any of it till morning or break any of its bones. When they celebrate the Passover, they must follow all the regulations. But if anyone who is ceremonially clean and not on a journey fails to celebrate the Passover, they must be cut off from their people for not presenting the
Lord’s offering at the appointed time.
They will bear the consequences of their sin.’ ” 
- Numbers 9:7-14

Passover for the Unclean    

As Israel was preparing to celebrate the second Passover one year after their deliverance from Egypt some men had become ceremonially unclean due to their contact with a dead body. The Levitical regulations concerning clean and unclean had been introduced and implemented during this first year in the wilderness. Now, due to the regulations concerning a dead body some men where not able to participate in the second Passover. It is interesting that God demanded everyone to participate, yet there were many things that disqualified individuals from being able to obey God.

Participation in the Passover celebration by everyone was one of the Levitical regulations. But, in this situation there is a conflict between the two regulations: Everyone must eat the Passover meal, but no one can eat the Passover meal if they are unclean. What is the answer to this dilemma? Moses does not respond to the question until he has God’s Word.

The Lord’s answer is simple and straightforward. Any Israelite who has a legitimate conflict with celebrating the Passover must celebrate it exactly one month later. The answer to this conflict is applied to other similar situations such as when a man is traveling on a journey and cannot celebrate Passover on the appointed day.

Both, failure to celebrate the Passover or going ahead with the participation in Passover while unclean would result in being “cut off from their people.”

Two things of interest should be noted. First, at Jesus’ arrest and at his crucifixion many people were concerned with becoming unclean, and so, missing the opportunity to participate with the rest of the community in the Passover meal and other activities occurring at that time. Second, Paul says that Jesus is our Passover lamb in 1 Corinthians 5:7, and then Paul also indicates that many people in the Corinthian church were being cutoff because they were celebrating the Lord’s supper while they were in some sense, unclean (1 Corinthians 11:27-30).

  Christian Quote from Church History

“Let your daughter have first of all the book of Psalms for holiness of heart, and be instructed in the Proverbs of Solomon for her godly life.”
– Jerome

Something to Ponder??

“God is angry with man. Unless we believe and repent we shall all be damned. It is impossible, indeed, for its advocates even to say this without instantly contradicting themselves. Their doctrine frightens them. They explain in various ways that a great many people will be saved without believing, and that eternal damnation is not eternal nor damnation.”

David’s palace has been discovered above the Stepped Stone Structure on the side of the Kidron Valley. A beautifully carved proto-Ionic capital from a column in the royal palace has been found at the base along with piles of ashlars (carefully hewn, rectangular building stones) from the palace building.
