likeness of men Phil.2:7-8) Christ came" (Rom.9:5) but they could not take away sin. Peter said to Cornelius
when he "fell down at his (Peter's) feet, "stand up; I myself am a man" (Acts.10:26) He knew he could not

life (1Ki 2:27), and was hereditary in the family of Aaron (Num 3:10). The office continued in the line of
Eleazar, Aaron's eldest son, for two hundred and ninety-six years, when it passed to Eli, the first of the line
of Ithamar, who was the fourth son of Aaron. In this line it continued to Abiathar, whom Solomon deposed,
and appointed Zadok, of the family of Eleazar, in his stead (1Ki 2:35), in which it remained till the time of the
Captivity. After the Return, Joshua, the son of Josedek, of the family of Eleazar, was appointed to this office.
After him the succession was changedfrom time to time under priestly or political influences.

Torah / Talmud Torah. This made the commandment of God of none effect. (Matt.15:6)
27. The traditions (handed down) - The Law was a schoolmaster to brings to to Christ (Gal.3:24) It could never
take away sin, only exposes it. (Heb.10:1-10)
28. One man - "Wherefore, as by one man (Adam) sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death
passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed
when there is no law. Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned
after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come. But not as the
offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of
God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man,Jesus Christ, (John.1:1-14, Matt.1:23, Phil.2:5-8) hath
abounded unto many. And not as it was by one (Adam) that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by
one (Adam) to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. For if by one man's
(Adam) offence death reigned by one; (Adam) much more they which receive abundance of grace and of
the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ. Therefore as by the offence of one (Adam)
judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one (Jesus) the free gift
came upon all men unto justification of life. For as by one (Adam) man's disobedience many were made
sinners, so by the obedience of one (Jesus) shall many be made righteous." (Rom.5:12-19)

30. The Altar / Entrance to the Garden of Eden (God) - The entrance to the Garden of Eden (which) was
guarded by the Cheribums and flaming sword) would be the place (in my opinion) where Abel offering the
firstlings of his flock. This is because Abel obviously wanted to be in God's presence and it is the beginning
place. (The ONLY PLACE - The flaming sword "turned EVERY WAY" Gen.3:24) When Noah (Gen.8:20-22) and
Abraham (Gen.12:8) built an altar they were demonstrating this is the place to beginning.

Tabernacle of Moses

were delivered from Egypt, they knew nothing of Solomon's Temple. All they knew that there was a land.
Gen.12:1-2; 15:1-15; 50:22-26)
d. Jesus said to the disciples "I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.

Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) Which in other ages
(generations) was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles
and prophets by the Spirit."

37. One man - Note the use of "one man" by the apostle Paul in Rom.5:10-21 The first Adam put all of
humanity into sin (Rom.5:12, 1Cor.15:45-49) the "last Adam" (Jesus our High Priest) redeemed all humanity
back into God's presence. To reject Christ is to reject your only way back to God. (John.14:6)

do not save you (or put you in Christ 2Cor.5:17) but they give evidence the you are in Christ. Trusting in the
Redeeming blood of Christ that put you in Christ. Nothing else.
