Quoted in this Episode
The Enduring Word Commentary by David Guzik
About Isaiah 56: 4-5The Enduring Word Commentary says:
“This also PROPHESIES THE PASSING OF THE DOMINANCE OF THE LEVITICAL ORDER.
“Clearly, giving eunuchs a place and a name in God’s house CONTRADICTED the command of LEVITICUS 21:17-20. BUT UNDER A COMING NEW COVENANT, THERE IS A HIGHER PRINCIPLE AT WORK THAN THE SHADOWS OF THE LEVITICAL LAW.”
Leviticus is describing who is EXCLUDED from the PRIESTHOOD Leviticus 21: 18-20
“No man who has any DEFECT may come near: no man who is BLIND or LAME, DISFIGURED or DEFORMED; no man with a CRIPPLED FOOT or hand, or who is a HUNCHBACK or a DWARF, or who has any EYE DEFECT, or who has festering or RUNNING SORES or DAMAGED TESTICLES.”
