In the Old Testament, the “slaying” was a literal death. In the Gospel Age, figurative or spiritual “slaying” is the picture. The high priest’s office will cease at the end of the Kingdom Age. In this age, the judgment of the ecclesia is the antitype of judgment by the congregation, or people, in a certain locale. A matter had to be established by the mouth of two or three witnesses. In the Old Testament study on leprosy, the leprous party had to be brought to the priest at particular periods of time for examination. The priest then pronounced him clean or unclean. In another instance, when an injury to property or another person occurred, the priest often assigned the penalties. Generally speaking, the Old Testament accounts apply to the Kingdom Age, in which the Church, Head and body, will render proper decisions. Therefore, the earlier chapters of Leviticus, with trespass offerings, etc., pertain to the world in the Kingdom Age. In a separate chapter in Tabernacle Shadows, the Pastor called them “Sacrifices Subsequent to the Day of Atonement” and just gave a brief description and enunciated certain principles. Because these sacrifices apply to the world in the future, he concentrated on Leviticus 8, 9, and 16, which pertain to the Gospel Age. For example, in Leviticus 16 on the Day of Atonement, the high priest wore white sacrificial garments (as opposed to garments of glory and beauty). In the Gospel Age, the high priest and underpriests are pictured as wearing white sacrificial garments. The robes of glory and beauty pertain to the Kingdom Age when The Christ will judge the world of mankind. The Church is being judged now so that they can be judges later. The Melchisedec priesthood in the Kingdom Age will be actual kings and priests, whereas in this age, Christians are called to be kings and priests.
