Homilies on Leviticus: 1-16

By Gary Wayne Barkley | Go to book overview

HOMILY 7

Concerning what was commanded to Aaron and his sons that "they
not drink wine or strong drink when they go into the Tent of
Witness or when they approach the altar
"; and concerning "the
breast of presentation and the limb of separation
" 1.and about clean
and unclean animals and foods
. 2.

MANY THINGS, certainly, were read to us in the preceding lesson only a few of which, limited by the brevity of the time, we spoke about fully. For now we are engaged not in the ministry of expounding the Scriptures but in that of edifying the Church. Although from these which were treated before by us, every wise hearer can find clear paths of understanding. For this reason, from these also which now we read, since we cannot cover everything, let us draw together some things which will edify the hearers as the little flowers "of a fertile field which the Lord blessed." 3.

(2) Let us see, therefore, what this may be what was just read to us. "And the Lord spoke to Aaron saying, You and your sons with you will not drink wine or strong drink when you go into the Tent of Witness or when you approach the altar and you will not die. This is an eternal law for your descendants: to discern between the sacred and profane, and between the clean and the unclean, and to teach the sons of Israel all the laws which the Lord spoke to them through the hand of Moses." 4.

(3) A clear law is given both to the priests and to the chief priest that "when they approach the altar they abstain from wine and from every drink which can make them drunk"
