Its possible that David had his own personal ephod similar to the priest, that he had made for himself, that was blessed of Yaoh.

The Burnt-Offering (Ha-Olah) of [Leviticus 1:1-17] was select [male בָּקָר Bull (from the herd) or male Sheep/Goat (from the flock) or male יּוֹנָה Dove/Pigeon] which an Israelite criminal would not eat but instead present to The-Kohanim הַכֹּֽהֲנִים with his-hand (יָד֔וֹ) to acknowledge intentional sins by the Elevated smell of his lost sustainability.

Here we must tread very carefully and not confuse the shadow with the reality in Christ. Heb 10:4 - because it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins. Rom 3:25 - God presented Him as the atoning sacrifice through faith in His blood, in order to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance He had passed over the sins ...

I find it utterly incredible how some Men do not care what Paul is actually teaching, they still have a faith so weak they insist on works salvation. This is SIMPLE LOGIC. Asking what defines works of the Law is Moot using simple Logic. Why? Because Paul excludes EVERY THING but faith. So you can argue, twist, & redefine works until Christ comes but the ...

In case this has escaped the notice of men, women have been dying in childbirth for centuries. It is far less likely in wealthy nations these days, yet in poor countries, many poor women continue to die because of childbirth. Which men today consider such deaths to be caused by God, as a punishment for some sin the women commit? Which men today have noticed ...

And then again Rachel did ask about her inheritance. Maybe because she wouldn't receive one she took the images for her inheritance. Maybe greed was the culprit for her demise...

believe it goes a little deeper than the question. With that said let me say this: The LORD suffers long and is patient. To be sure, there are many that have transgressed into idolatry much worse than poor Rachel did. Notwithstanding, it is concurrent throughout the Word of God that God holds those that are recipients of his promise to a higher degree of ...

Teraphim For idolatry, no, for stealing and incurring the curse of her husband (Gn 31:32), probably. Yet another case where transgressions exact a price. Gn 31:32 But as for your gods, you find them with anybody, and he shall not live! Jacob did not know that Rachel had appropriated them. This is ominous. It can be argued that the teraphim were property ...

Rachel’s sad death in childbirth is the first such death recorded in the Bible. Apart from this interesting feature, there are two significant reasons to think it might have been something like a punishment: (1) it might be thought that Rachel did something quite seriously sinful in stealing her father’s “gods” (“images,” idols, teraphim: Gen 31:19): and (2) ...

If we "died to the law" & "disannulling of the commandment" took place the why is Paul quoting " Deuteronomy 17:7 " in "1 Corinthians 5:13"? Quite simply it is because Paul believed that the Law was still profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness: 16 All Scripture is ...

Nigel J says it well, they had the same doctrine but there is no way to know for sure if they are the same people. It's best to go with "I don't know if they were the same people or not" and focus on the main point of the story. I don't mean to be overly detailed but it helps me to understand something if I look at the context. Looking at the whole ...

It is being used in contrast to one particular law, not so much "the law", that is: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." Now there was a problem at the Galatian assemblies. After Paul's visit, Jewish-Christian missionaries arrived with instructions to be circumcised. Word got back to Paul and he explained why this was not necessary ...

There was no law during Judah's lifetime. The law was given to Moses hundreds of years later. Back then, Canaan was dominated and controlled by Egypt. And one can safely assume that Canaanites were emulating Egyptian customs and culture. Burning was one of the punishments of adulterous women in Ancient Egypt.

Why did Judah charge that Tamar should be burnt in Genesis 38:24? This should not be seen as a contradiction. We must look at the course of events to understand it clearly. The events of Genesis chapter 38 happen either at the same time or before Joseph is taken to Egypt. (Genesis chapter 39) This is about two hundred years before Moses is born or the ...

This is an example of perception and symbolism and how the Jews perceived the man, as they did not know his previous circumstances and were not interested, only to chastise him for not heeding to the law. This man’s pallet was his personal item, not an item for sale, labor or duty. If for a moment, we can look back at this scene where the man is coming to ...
