Today, Larry Reeves, pointed out an interesting correlation from the New Testament and the Old Testament. In Leviticus the high priest is instructed to leave behind his linen clothes after submitting a sin offering. In the Apostle John’s narration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ he points out the linen clothes left in the empty tomb left by the highest priest after His ultimate victory over sin and death.
Leviticus 16:3-4 & 23 – Thus shall Aaron come into the holy place: with a young bullock for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering. He shall put on the holy linen coat, and he shall have the linen breeches upon his flesh, and shall be girded with a linen girdle, and with the linen mitre shall he be attired: these are holy garments; therefore shall he wash his flesh in water, and so put them on. And Aaron shall come into the tabernacle of the congregation, and shall put off the linen garments, which he put on when he went into the holy place, and shall leave them there:
John 20:4-7 – So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in. Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie, And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.
