Reflection on the Levitical Priesthood | Dr. Kelly Anderson
In the Mosaic Covenant, Israel is called to be a priest for all nations through their sanctification but they quickly fall into a state of sin. The Levites then step forward to act in their sanctification for all of Israel and therefore, the world. Dr. Kelly Anderson, Assistant Professor of Scriptural Studies at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, reflects on the call to the Levitical Priesthood and the Priesthood though Jesus Christ.
1. How does the Levitical Priesthood pertain to you/us in our everyday life/lives?
2. In what ways can you (as an individual, family, group or organization) offer yourself/yourselves today to help bring the people of the world "into a relationship with God"?
3. When have you felt Jesus next to you, helping you resist a strong temptation?
