With Jeremiah 31:31-37 and Acts 2:38-41
Aaron and his sons needed to wash up – to be immersed in water – and to receive God’s anointing. Then they could serve God wholeheartedly. Peter said something similar to thousands of Jewish people who heard the good news of Yeshua in Jerusalem. They also needed to be immersed, receive God’s anointing, and serve God wholeheartedly, and live in community. Rabbi David Levine’s message opens up the connection between Moses and Yeshua, and between the Sinai Covenant and the New Covenant.
