Light on The Daily Path

“All the rest of the bull – he must bring outside the camp to a ceremonially clean place, to the fatty ash pile, and he must burn it on a wood fire.”

[Lev 4:12 NET]

So they took Jesus, and carrying his own cross he went out to the place called “The Place of the Skull” (called in Aramaic Golgotha). There they crucified him.—For the bodies of those animals whose blood the high priest brings into the sanctuary as an offering for sin are burned outside the camp. Therefore, to sanctify the people by his own blood, Jesus also suffered outside the camp. We must go out to him, then, outside the camp, bearing the abuse he experienced.—To share in his sufferings.

But rejoice in the degree that you have shared in the sufferings of Christ, so that when his glory is revealed you may also rejoice and be glad.—For our momentary, light suffering is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison.

[John 19:16-18, Heb 13:11-13, Phil 3:10, 1 Pet 4:13, 2 Cor 4:17]
