Moses Jose Jesus, Lex Talionis, Jorde discussed on Heartland Newsfeed Radio Network
I just mentioned the Malachi in several places and obviously the Messiah was atmosphere of expectation there. But the Prophet of Moses Jose Jesus was incidentally enough fulfillment of that too. There's a lot of parallels between Moses and Jesus he was buried in both of them were spared in infancy both of them renounced announced royal court both of them both Jesus and Moses had compassion for the people both Jesus Moses Make Intercession for the people It said in both both exit thirty four. And Second Corinthians three that they spoke with face to face and of course both of them were mediators of a covenant Moses in the Old Testament of course Jesus in the New Testament. So it's interesting to see those parallels but deuteronomy structures pretty straightforward. I P versus the first chapters about the failure that they had endured the the conclusion of the thirty eight years of wilderness wandering the mutual love the love of God for the people and the obligations in response. In fact. That's really what chapters twelve through twenty seven deal with the obligations of God related people and even though we're not under the law there's many things that will gleaned from that as being related people the alternatives that are before God related people in Chapters Twenty seven to thirty and then the final arrangements for continuity with Moses passing at the end of the book. So that's a quick snapshot of the Book and of course we are in chapters nineteen twenty tonight so nineteen. We're talk a little bit about the cities of refuge. We're talking about what a goal is and we'll talk about the principle of Lex Talionis which you know as a as I for night so forth so but it's interesting what's happening here. Is there anticipating a settlement. They've been wandering for thirty eight years so all the arrangements that they're used to traveling pneumatic group are starting starting to shift. Because they're going after most is going to be going into the lion under Joshua and so on but they'll start settling and some changes they're going to start decentralizing realizing that the administration of Justice as nomadic tribes had a central authority with Mohsen the priest and so forth. They're going to have to distribute that. So it's GonNa Change caused some changes under Moses. The Altar had become an asylum for someone who killed another person accidentally if you were accused of manslaughter you killed killed someone in those days. The next of kin would come after you but if you were if it was an accidental death what we call it manslaughter. Their their provisions there was if if they could make it to the to the to the tabernacle the altered self was a place that someone could find asylum. Well that doesn't work if you're GONNA be spread across the land so we will. Even the slaying of animals by the way was now. Decentralized Remember Deuteronomy twelve but so the Law of silence at geographical changes going on. So let's jump into Deuteronomy nineteen first first one when the Lord God has cut off the nation's whose land the Lord I got the and they'll succeed is them and into ellison their cities and in their houses thou shalt separate three cities for the in the midst of our land which the Lord Giveth either possess it. Now prepare or the way and divide the coasts of I land which the Lord thy God give it the inherit into three parts that every slayer may flee either so this is where you're introducing this whole idea of the the cities of refuge. They actually setup three already on the east of the Jordan. They're gonNA sit up three more on the west of Jorde and these. We'll take a look at these here..
