Exodus 28 The office of the priest

Read Exodus 28


God describes for Moses all of the garments and accessories that the priests are to wear. Until now with few exceptions there was no actual office of priest to God. In most families the oldest male served as priest. But God is starting something new. A single office of priest and a single form of worship. Left to our own devices we humans will come up with all sorts of rituals for worship. By clothing Aaron and his family, God provides a visual for the office that He established. Of course we pervert it with all sorts of embellishments and accessories. Becoming not so much a symbol of the office but of affluence.
