February 11th, Exodus 28-29: Priests and Aaron’s Legacy

Exodus 28 details the priestly garments. Gold, onyx stones, and other precious materials would be worn by the priests of Israel.

Exodus 28:12 says:
21 There are to be twelve stones, one for each of the names of the sons of Israel, each engraved like a seal with the name of one of the twelve tribes.

Exodus 29 details the consecration of the priests, requiring a young bull and two rams without defect. Aaron and his sons and their sons would serve as priests of Israel for the generations to come.

Exodus 29:7-9 says:
7 Take the anointing oil and anoint him by pouring it on his head. 8 Bring his sons and dress them in tunics 9 and put headbands on them. Then tie sashes on Aaron and his sons. The priesthood is theirs by a lasting ordinance. In this way you shall ordain Aaron and his sons.

Exodus 29-44-46 says:
44 “So I will consecrate the Tent of Meeting and the altar and will consecrate Aaron and his sons to serve me as priests. 45 Then I will dwell among the Israelites and be their God. 46 They will know that I am the LORD their God, who brought them out of Egypt so that I might dwell among them. I am the LORD their God.

God had a plan for the Israelites, and by obeying his plan they acknowledged that he was the LORD. This meant paying attention to the little details like the garments that their priests wore.
