Leviticus 8:14-36

Then he brought forth the bull of the sin offering, and Aaron and his sons placed their hands on the head of the bull of the sin offering, and he slaughtered [it], and Moses took the blood and put [it] with his finger on the altar's horns all around and purified the altar; then he poured the blood out on the altar's base--thus he consecrated it [in order] to make atonement for it. Then he took all the fat that [was] on the inner parts and the lobe on the liver and the two kidneys and their fat, and Moses turned [them] into smoke on the altar, read more.
but he burned the bull and its skin and its meat and its offal in the fire {outside the camp}, [just] as Yahweh had commanded Moses. Then he brought the ram of the burnt offering near, and Aaron and his sons placed their hands on the ram's head, and he slaughtered [it]. Then Moses sprinkled the blood on the altar all around. Then he cut the ram into pieces, and Moses turned into smoke the head and the pieces and the suet, but he washed the inner parts and the lower leg bones with water, and Moses turned into smoke all of the ram on the altar; it [was] a burnt offering as an appeasing fragrance, an offering made by fire for Yahweh, [just] as Yahweh had commanded Moses. Then he brought the second ram near, the ram of the consecration, and Aaron and his sons placed their hands on the ram's head, and he slaughtered [it]. Then Moses took {some of} its blood and put [it] on Aaron's right ear lobe and on his right hand's thumb and on his right foot's big toe. Then he brought Aaron's sons near, and Moses put {some of} the blood on their right ear lobe and on their right hand's thumb and on their right foot's big toe, and Moses sprinkled the blood on the altar all around. Then he took the fat and the fat tail and all of the fat that [was] on the inner parts and the lobe of the liver and the two kidneys and their fat and the right upper thigh; and from the basket of the unleavened bread that [was] before Yahweh he took one ring-shaped unleavened bread and one ring-shaped bread with oil and one wafer, and he placed [them] on the {fat parts} and on the right upper thigh. Then he put {all of these} on Aaron's palms and on his sons' palms, and he waved them [as] a wave offering {before} Yahweh. Then Moses took them from upon their palms, and he turned [them] into smoke upon the burnt offering on the altar; they [were] a consecration offering as an appeasing fragrance--it [was] an offering made by fire for Yahweh. Then Moses took the breast section, and he waved it [as] a wave offering {before} Yahweh from the ram of the consecration offering; it [was] Moses' share, [just] as Yahweh had commanded Moses. Then Moses took {some of} the anointing oil and {some of} the blood that [was] on the altar, and he spattered [them] on Aaron, on his garments, and on Aaron's sons and on his sons' garments with him--thus he consecrated Aaron, his garments, and his sons and his sons' garments with him. Then Moses said to Aaron and to his sons, "Boil the meat in [the] entrance to [the] tent of assembly, and there you must eat it and the bread that [is] in the basket of the consecration offering, [just] as I have commanded, saying, 'Aaron and his sons must eat it,' but the remainder of the meat and the bread you must burn in the fire. And you must not go out from the entrance to [the] tent of assembly [for] seven days, until [the] day of fulfilling the days of your consecration, because {it will take seven days to ordain you}. [Just] as was done on this day, Yahweh commanded to be done [in order] to make atonement for you. And you must stay [at the] entrance to [the] tent of assembly day and night [for] seven days, and you shall keep the obligation from Yahweh, so you might not die, for thus I have been commanded." So Aaron and his sons did all the things that Yahweh had commanded {through} Moses.

Leviticus 9:8-24

Then Aaron approached the altar, and he slaughtered the bull calf of the sin offering, which was for himself. Then Aaron's sons presented the blood to him, and he dipped his finger in the blood, and he put [it] on the altar's horns, and he poured out the blood on the altar's base. And the fat and the kidneys and the lobe {from the sin offering's liver} he turned into smoke on the altar, [just] as Yahweh had commanded Moses, read more.
but the meat and the skin he burned {with fire} {outside the camp}. Then he slaughtered the burnt offering, and Aaron's sons brought the blood to him, and he sprinkled it on the altar all around; and they brought the burnt offering to him by its pieces, as well as the head, and he turned [them] into smoke on the altar; and he washed the inner parts and the lower leg bones, then he turned [them] into smoke upon the burnt offering on the altar. Then he presented the people's offering, and he took the goat of the sin offering, which [was] for the people, and he slaughtered it and offered it [as] a sin offering like the first one. Then he presented the burnt offering, and he {sacrificed} it according to the regulation. Then he presented the grain offering, and he filled his palm {with some of} it, and he turned it into smoke on the altar besides the morning's burnt offering. Then he slaughtered the ox and the ram, the fellowship offerings that [are] for the people, and Aaron's sons brought the blood to him, and he sprinkled it on the altar all around. And [as for] the fat portions from the ox and from the ram (the fat tail and the layer of fat and the kidneys and the lobe of the liver), they placed the fat portions on the breast sections, and he turned the fat portions into smoke on the altar. Then Aaron waved the breast sections and the right upper thigh [as] a wave offering {before} Yahweh, [just] as Moses had commanded. Then Aaron lifted his hand toward the people, and he blessed them, and he came down {after} {sacrificing} the sin offering and the burnt offering and the fellowship offerings. Then Moses and Aaron entered [the] tent of assembly. When they came out, they blessed the people, and Yahweh's glory appeared to all the people. Then a fire went out {from before} Yahweh, and it consumed the burnt offering and the fat portions on the altar. And all the people saw [it], so they shouted [for joy], and they fell on their faces.

Law » Christ being the end of the law

2 Corinthians 3:14-16

But their minds were hardened. For until this very day, the same veil remains upon the reading of the old covenant, not being uncovered, because it is done away with in Christ. But until today, whenever Moses is read aloud, a veil lies upon their heart, but whenever one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed.

Romans 8:1-4

Consequently, [there is] now no condemnation for those [who are] in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and death. For what [was] impossible for the law, in that it was weak through the flesh, God [did]. [By] sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and concerning sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, read more.
in order that the requirement of the law would be fulfilled in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

Romans 7:1-25

Or do you not know, brothers (for I am speaking to those who know the law), that the law is master of a person for as long a time [as] he lives? For the married woman is bound by law to [her] husband while he lives, but if her husband dies, she is released from the law of the husband. Therefore as a result, if she belongs to another man [while] her husband is living, she will be called an adulteress. But if her husband dies, she is free from the law, so that she is not an adulteress [if she] belongs to another man. read more.
So then, my brothers, you also were brought to death with respect to the law through the body of Christ, so that you may belong to another, to the one who was raised from the dead, in order that we may bear fruit for God. For when we were in the flesh, sinful desires were working through the law in our members, to bear fruit for death. But now we have been released from the law, [because we] have died [to that] by which we were bound, so that we may serve in newness of the Spirit and not in oldness of the letter [of the law]. What then shall we say? [Is] the law sin? May it never be! But I would not have known sin except through the law, for I would not have known covetousness if the law had not said, "Do not covet." But sin, seizing an opportunity through the commandment, produced in me all [kinds of] covetousness. For apart from the law, sin [is] dead. And I was alive once, apart from the law, but [when] the commandment came, sin sprang to life and I died, and this commandment which [was] to [lead to] life was found with respect to me to [lead to] death. For sin, seizing the opportunity through the commandment, deceived me and through it killed [me]. So then, the law [is] holy, and the commandment [is] holy and righteous and good. Therefore, [did that which is] good become death to me? May it never be! Rather [it was] sin, in order that it might be recognized [as] sin, producing death through [what is] good for me, in order that sin might become sinful to an extraordinary degree through the commandment. For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am fleshly, {sold into slavery to sin}. For what I am doing I do not understand, because what I want [to do], this I do not practice, but what I hate, this I do. But if what I do not want [to do], this I do, I agree with the law that [it is] good. But now I am no longer the one doing it, but sin that lives in me. For I know that good does not live in me, that is, in my flesh. For the willing is present in me, but the doing [of] the good [is] not. For the good that I want [to do], I do not do, but the evil that I do not want [to do], this I do. But if what I do not want [to do], this I am doing, I am no longer the one doing it, but sin that lives in me. Consequently, I find the principle with me, the one who wants to do good, that evil is present with me. For I joyfully agree with the law of God in my inner person, but I observe another law in my members, at war with the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that exists in my members. Wretched man [that] I [am]! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks [be] to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself with my mind am enslaved to the law of God, but with my flesh [I am enslaved] to the law of sin.

Galatians 2:16-21

but knowing that a person is not justified by the works of the law, if not by faith in Jesus Christ, and we have believed in Christ Jesus so that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law, because by the works of the law {no human being will be justified}. But if [while] seeking to be justified by Christ, [we] ourselves also have been found [to be] sinners, then [is] Christ an agent of sin? May it never be! For if I build up again these [things] which I destroyed, I show myself [to be] a transgressor. read more.
For through the law I died to the law, in order that I might live to God. I have been crucified with Christ, and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me, and that [life] I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. I do not declare invalid the grace of God, for if righteousness [is] through the law, then Christ died to no purpose.

And they went on from Perga [and] arrived at Pisidian Antioch. And they entered into the synagogue on the day of the Sabbath [and] sat down.

The God of this people Israel chose our fathers and exalted the people during [their] stay in the land of Egypt, and with uplifted arm he led them out of it. And for a period of time [of] about forty years, he put up with them in the wilderness.

And after these [things], he gave [them] judges until Samuel the prophet. And then they asked for a king, and God gave them Saul son of Kish, a man from the tribe of Benjamin, [for] forty years. And [after] removing him, he raised up David for their king, about whom he also said, testifying, 'I have found David the [son] of Jesse [to be] a man in accordance with my heart, who will carry out all my will.' From the descendants of this man, according to [his] promise, God brought to Israel a Savior, Jesus. Before {his coming} John had publicly proclaimed a baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel. But while John was completing [his] mission, he said, 'What do you suppose me to be? I am not [he]! But behold, one is coming after me of whom I am not worthy to untie the sandals of [his] feet!' "Men [and] brothers, sons of the family of Abraham and those among you who fear God--to us the message of this salvation has been sent!

But that he has raised him from the dead, no more going to return to decay, he has spoken in this way: 'I will give you the reliable divine decrees of David.' Therefore he also says in another [psalm], 'You will not permit your Holy One to experience decay.' For David, [after] serving the purpose of God in his own generation, fell asleep and {was buried with} his fathers, and experienced decay. But he whom God raised up did not experience decay. "Therefore let it be known to you, men [and] brothers, that through this one forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you, and from all [the things] from which you were not able to be justified by the law of Moses, by this one everyone who believes is justified! Watch out, therefore, lest what is stated by the prophets come upon [you]: 'Look, you scoffers, and be astonished and perish! For I am doing a work in your days, a work that you would never believe [even] if someone were to tell [it] to you.'" And [as] they were going out, they began urging [that] these things be spoken about to them on the next Sabbath. And [after] the synagogue had broken up, many of the Jews and the devout proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas, who were speaking to them [and] were persuading them to continue in the grace of God. And on the coming Sabbath, nearly the whole city came together to hear the word of the Lord. But [when] the Jews saw the crowds, they were filled with jealousy, and began contradicting what was being said by Paul [by] reviling [him]. Both Paul and Barnabas spoke boldly [and] said, "It was necessary [that] the word of God be spoken first to you, since you reject it and do not consider yourselves worthy of eternal life! Behold, we are turning to the Gentiles! For so the Lord has commanded us: 'I have appointed you {to be} a light for the Gentiles, {that you would bring} salvation to the end of the earth.' And [when] the Gentiles heard [this], they began to rejoice and to glorify the word of the Lord. And all those who were designated for eternal life believed. So the word of the Lord was carried through the whole region. But the Jews incited the devout women of high social standing and the most prominent men of the city, and stirred up persecution against Paul and Barnabas and threw them out of their district. So [after] shaking off the dust from [their] feet against them, they went to Iconium. And the disciples were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.

Or do you not know, brothers (for I am speaking to those who know the law), that the law is master of a person for as long a time [as] he lives? For the married woman is bound by law to [her] husband while he lives, but if her husband dies, she is released from the law of the husband. Therefore as a result, if she belongs to another man [while] her husband is living, she will be called an adulteress. But if her husband dies, she is free from the law, so that she is not an adulteress [if she] belongs to another man. read more.
So then, my brothers, you also were brought to death with respect to the law through the body of Christ, so that you may belong to another, to the one who was raised from the dead, in order that we may bear fruit for God.

But now we have been released from the law, [because we] have died [to that] by which we were bound, so that we may serve in newness of the Spirit and not in oldness of the letter [of the law].
