Scofield Reference Notes

[1] rod of Aaron

Aaron's rod that budded: Type of Christ in resurrection, owned of God as High Priest. Aaron's priesthood had been questioned in the rebellion of Korah, Song God Himself will confirm it Num 17:5. Each of the tribe-heads brought a perfectly dead rod; God put life into Aaron's only. Song all the authors of religions have died, Christ among them, but only Christ was raised from the dead, and exalted to be a high priest. Heb 4:14 5:4-10.Numbers 17:8 Parallel Commentaries
