Numbers 19

  1. What are the special features of the sacrifice described in 19:1-10?
    Note the use to which the ashes were put (19:9, 12, 17-19).
    What are the ‘dead works’ from which we need to be purified?


  1. 19:9, 12, 17-19. The cleansing virtue of the sacrifice already made was thus symbolically stored up and applied, as need arose, to the unclean.
    Cf. Heb. 9:13, 14; 1 John 1:7-9.
