Leviticus 21:1-24

1, Then the LORD said to Moses, “Speak to the priests, the sons of Aaron, and say to them:

‘No one shall defile himself for a dead person among his people,

2, except for his relatives who are nearest to him, his mother and his father and his son and his daughter and his brother,

3, also for his virgin sister, who is near to him because she has had no husband; for her he may defile himself.

4, ‘He shall not defile himself as a relative by marriage among his people, and so profane himself.

5, ‘They shall not make any baldness on their heads, nor shave off the edges of their beards, nor make any cuts in their flesh.

6, ‘They shall be holy to their God and not profane the name of their God, for they present the offerings by fire to the LORD, the food of their God; so they shall be holy.

7, ‘They shall not take a woman who is profaned by harlotry, nor shall they take a woman divorced from her husband; for he is holy to his God.

8, ‘You shall consecrate him, therefore, for he offers the food of your God; he shall be holy to you; for I the LORD, who sanctifies you, am holy.

9, ‘Also the daughter of any priest, if she profanes herself by harlotry, she profanes her father; she shall be burned with fire.

10, ‘The priest who is the highest among his brothers, on whose head the anointing oil has been poured and who has been consecrated to wear the garments, shall not uncover his head nor tear his clothes;

11, nor shall he approach any dead person, nor defile himself even for his father or his mother;

12, nor shall he go out of the sanctuary nor profane the sanctuary of his God, for the consecration of the anointing oil of his God is on him; I am the LORD.

13, ‘He shall take a wife in her virginity.

14, ‘A widow, or a divorced woman, or one who is profaned by harlotry, these he may not take; but rather he is to marry a virgin of his own people,

15, so that he will not profane his offspring among his people; for I am the LORD who sanctifies him.’”

16, Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 17“Speak to Aaron, saying, ‘No man of your offspring throughout their generations who has a defect shall approach to offer the food of his God.

18, ‘For no one who has a defect shall approach: a blind man, or a lame man, or he who has a disfigured face, or any deformed limb,

19, or a man who has a broken foot or broken hand,

20, or a hunchback or a dwarf, or one who has a defect in his eye or eczema or scabs or crushed testicles.

21, ‘No man among the descendants of Aaron the priest who has a defect is to come near to offer the LORD’S offerings by fire; since he has a defect, he shall not come near to offer the food of his God.

22, ‘He may eat the food of his God, both of the most holy and of the holy,

23, only he shall not go in to the veil or come near the altar because he has a defect, so that he will not profane My sanctuaries. For I am the LORD who sanctifies them.’”

24, So Moses spoke to Aaron and to his sons and to all the sons of Israel.

 

Continues to our New Testament

Luke 22:18

18, for I say to you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine from now on until the kingdom of God comes.”

19, And when He had taken some bread and given thanks, He broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”

20, And in the same way He took the cup after they had eaten, saying, “This cup which is poured out for you is the new covenant in My blood.

21, “But behold, the hand of the one betraying Me is with Mine on the table.

22, “For indeed, the Son of Man is going as it has been determined; but woe to that man by whom He is betrayed!”

23, And they began to discuss among themselves which one of them it might be who was going to do this thing.

 

 

John 6:26-71

Words to the People

26,Jesus answered them and said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled.

 

27, “Do not work for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you, for on Him the Father, God, has set His seal.”

 

28, Therefore they said to Him, “What shall we do, so that we may work the works of God?”

29, Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent.”

 

30, So they said to Him, “What then do You do for a sign, so that we may see, and believe You? What work do You perform?

31, “Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, ‘HE GAVE THEM BREAD OUT OF HEAVEN TO EAT.’”

32, Jesus then said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread out of heaven, but it is My Father who gives you the true bread out of heaven.

36, “But I said to you that you have seen Me, and yet do not believe.

37, “All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out.

38, “For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.

 

39, “This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of all that He has given Me I lose nothing, but raise it up on the last day.

40, “For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day.”

 

Words to the Jews

41, Therefore the Jews were grumbling about Him, because He said, “I am the bread that came down out of heaven.”

42, They were saying, “Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How does He now say, ‘I have come down out of heaven’?”

 

43, Jesus answered and said to them, “Do not grumble among yourselves.

44, “No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up on the last day.

45, “It is written in the prophets, ‘AND THEY SHALL ALL BE TAUGHT OF GOD.’ Everyone who has heard and learned from the Father, comes to Me.

46, “Not that anyone has seen the Father, except the One who is from God; He has seen the Father.

51, “I am the living bread that came down out of heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread also which I will give for the life of the world is My flesh.”

52, Then the Jews began to argue with one another, saying, “How can this man give us His flesh to eat?”

53, So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves.

54,“He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.

55, “For My flesh is true food, and My blood is true drink. 56“He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.

57, “As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who eats Me, he also will live because of Me.

58, “This is the bread which came down out of heaven; not as the fathers ate and died; he who eats this bread will live forever.”

 

Words to the Disciples

59, These things He said in the synagogue as He taught in Capernaum.

60, Therefore many of His disciples, when they heard this said, “This is a difficult statement; who can listen to it?”

61, But Jesus, conscious that His disciples grumbled at this, said to them, “Does this cause you to stumble?

62, “What then if you see the Son of Man ascending to where He was before?

63, “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life.

64, “But there are some of you who do not believe.” For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who it was that would betray Him.

65, And He was saying, “For this reason I have said to you, that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted him from the Father.”

Peter’s Confession of Faith

66, As a result of this many of His disciples withdrew and were not walking with Him anymore.

67, So Jesus said to the twelve, “You do not want to go away also, do you?”

68, Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life.

69, “We have believed and have come to know that You are the Holy One of God.”

70,Jesus answered them, “Did I Myself not choose you, the twelve, and yet one of you is a devil?”

71, Now He meant Judas the son of Simon Iscariot, for he, one of the twelve, was going to betray Him.
