And of course The Feast of Purim was added by the Jews in exile, to the feast days God commanded Israel to keep. Condemn that addition and you condemn a whole book of the OT.

The case of Nadab and Abihu does perhaps teach the existence of a "law of silence" in regard to priests offering sacrifices of attonement, but with regard to other aspects of commanded worship, the Bible teaches that no such law ever exited.


Lively:  and yet, Jesus kept the feast of Purim, did he not?

...which actually makes Norton's point.

Jesus allowed observance of an addition that was not part of the Law of Moses.


Lively: The point being is, would Jesus keep something which was not to be kept?  While the Lord may have given certain feasts on certain days... such does not mean that man may not have a feast of his choosing some other day...  I do not see thanksgiving being a feast of the Lord in the NT teachings, yet I see all brethren in the US celebrating it... it is a national holiday... not a holy day of the Lord...  now, if one stated that all must keep it as a commandment from the Lord, then I think we would have a problem with such a teaching...



or not keep it because it wasn't a commandment from the Lord, then I think we would also have a problem with such a teaching...
