Letters from a Pastor to His People- June 30, 2019
In the Old Testament, each of the Twelve Tribes of Israel were given parcels of land throughout Israel, following the Exodus and return to the Holy Land. That is, all of the tribes except the tribe of Levi. The Levites were set apart as priests for Israel. This was determined by Moses when he came down from Mount Sinai with the Law. The Levites would not farm, goat and sheep herd. They would not have to worry about land disputes. Their whole task was to care for the Temple in Jerusalem. How would they be sustained? From where would their livelihood come? One word answer: God.
