NUMBERS 8-9:In Numbers 7, we heard about the gifts given by the leaders of Israel following the dedication of the sacred tent. PSALM 31:Psalm 31 is a desperate, yet confident, prayer for protection. This prayer models the secret of effective prayer— praying with full belief in the Lord. LUKE 20b:Yesterday’s reading in first part of Luke 20 showed how the Jewish leaders tried to confront and discredit Jesus. I remember reading these passages in the summer after 6th grade and being so impressed with Jesus' wisdom. GNT Translation notes:[Who it is who does the ‘waving’ in this ‘wave offering’ is variously interpreted in 8:13. And it could be taken simply as a presentation, because it would be rather hard to ‘wave’ this object.]Num. 8:13 [NLT Then have the Levites stand in front of Aaron and his sons, and raise your hands and present them as a special offering to the LORD.//HCSB: … and you are to present them before the Lord as a presentation offering.//CEV: They will stand at my altar in front of Aaron and his sons, who will dedicate the Levites to me.//GNT: “Dedicate the Levites as a special gift to me, and put Aaron and his sons in charge of them.]====Ps. 31:21 [Let everyone] Praise the Lord!How wonderfully he showed his love for mewhen I was surrounded and attacked!23 [Listen, all his faithful people: Love the Lord!//Love the Lord, all his faithful people.]The Lord protects the faithful,but punishes the proud as they deserve.24 Be strong, be courageous,all you [who//that] hope in the Lord.====Luk. 20:27 Then some Sadducees, [the religious party] who say that people will not rise from death, came to Jesus and said, NLT Translation notes:Num. 8:13 [NLT Then have the Levites stand in front of Aaron and his sons, and raise your hands and present them as a special offering to the LORD.//HCSB: … and you are to present them before the Lord as a presentation offering.]]CEV: They will stand at my altar in front of Aaron and his sons, who will dedicate the Levites to me.] [Who it is who does the ‘waving’ in this ‘wave offering’ is variously interpreted.]====Ps. 31:21 Praise [you/the] LORD, for [you have//he has] shown me the wonders of [your/his] unfailing love.[You have//He] kept me safe when my city was under attack.====Luk. 20:8 And Jesus responded, “Then I won’t tell you [either/0] by what authority I do these things.”16 “I’ll tell you—he will come and kill those farmers and lease the vineyard to others.”[His listeners protested, “Oh, may such a thing never happen!”//“How terrible that such a thing should ever happen.”]19 The teachers of religious law and the leading priests wanted to arrest Jesus immediately because they realized he was telling the story against them—they were the wicked farmers. But they [did nothing because//0] they were afraid of the people’s reaction.23 He saw through their [duplicity/trickery] and said, 24 “Show me a Roman coin. Whose picture and title are stamped [here/0] on it?”37 “But now, as to whether the dead will be raised—even Moses proved this when he wrote about the burning bush. Long after Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob had died, he referred to the Lord d as ‘[the God Abraham worships//the God of Abraham], [the God Isaac worships//the God of Isaac], and [the God Jacob worships//the God of Jacob].’41 Then Jesus presented them with a [problem/question]. [“Note that there is a problem with the teaching that the Messiah will come as a descendant of David.”//”Why is it,” he asked, “that the Messiah is said to be the son of David?”]44 Since David called the Messiah ‘Lord,’ [it is clear that the Messiah cannot just be his descendant!//how can the Messiah be his son?]”
