“He has washed us and made us new so that we can praise him forever.”
The 12 stones on the priest’s breast plate represented the 12 names of Israel sons. That, along with everything else, points to Jesus and his redemptive work on the cross. Chapter 29 talks about consecration. God is very specific with His instructions. We are to strive for holiness, strive to be like Him. The consecration of the priests point us to the ultimate high priest, Jesus!
“The priests offered sacrifices continually, but Jesus would be the once for all sacrifice for the sins of His people. Each element points to Jesus and reminds us of the beauty of who He is.”
