The Law of Jealousy
The Epistle to the Hebrews reveals many hidden truths of the Old Testament, especially within the Torah. One such mystery is found in the book of Numbers. As a Mosaic Law, it seemed a bit obscure, even unfair; as a revelation of grace, it is magnificent!
The Law of Jealousy lies within the Old Testament Torah as a testimony to marital fidelity for the covenant people of Israel. To the Christian, it was a shadow cast backward in time that reveals a vital New Testament truth. This book explains the use of types, shadows and examples from the Old Testament to their New Testament realities.
When a woman stood before the priest, accused by her husband of infidelity, trembling with fear and shame, a cup was placed in her hand. If guilty, she would drink a hideous curse upon herself. If innocent, the same cup would yield a blessing.
From the Law of Moses, through the Prophets, to the Garden of Gethsemane, we will follow the shadow of that cup. In doing so, a great revelation of Christ's substitutionary work will be unveiled.
