How is a similar lesson pictured in the first Passover in Egypt? How does the blood of the lamb portray Christ's work as mediator for His people?



    After the death of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, the people of Israel continued to rebel, saying to Moses and Aaron, "Ye have killed the people of the LORD" (Numbers 16:41b).

    Upon witnessing this, we read: "And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a censer, and put fire therein from off the altar, and put on incense, and go quickly unto the congregation, and make an atonement for them: for there is wrath gone out from the LORD; the plague is begun. And Aaron took as Moses commanded, and ran into the midst of the congregation; and behold, the plague was begun among the people: and he put on incense, and made an atonement for the people. And he stood between the dead and the living; and the plague was stayed. Now they that died in the plague were fourteen thousand and seven hundred, beside them that died about the matter of Korah" (Numbers 16:46-49).

    How was Aaron a type of Christ, as mediator, when he stood between the dead and the living? Why are we only safe, when standing behind Jesus Christ and His sacrifice?

    How do the following aspects of this story all point to Christ's work as mediator:

    - The high priest

    - Fire from the brazen altar - The incense

    - Making atonement
