killing of first born son.

Discussion in 'Bible Study' started by smellycat, Nov 3, 2008.

  1. killing of first born son.

    this as far as i know happened a few times in the bible,is there any similarity,between evil killing.?
  2. What is the relation between the OT killing of the first born son and us killing Gods first born son (Jesus)?

    I know this may not push forward this thread but I couldn't help seeing this reflection.
  3. See the comparison between the killing of the Hebrews, at the time when Moses was sent floating down the Nile, and the killing of Egyptian firstborn sons. Notice the day of passover with the blood over the door posts and the day Christs blood was shed and applied to the believer's heart, and the blessed believer found in Christ on the day of judgement.

  4. That is a good reflection , Humble .
  5. to understand the significance of killing a first born you must understand the cultural significance of the first born. The first born was given special rights, privileges, and responsibilities. He was given a double portion of the estate and was considered the ruler of his younger siblings.

    when the first born of egypt were killed it was saying "I am crushing you and taking away your posterity" (very harsh!)

    Jesus being the first born says (on just surface level)... that He was the only BEGOTTEN Son (we are adopted) and that He is the ruler of all. Along with many other levels of meaning I don't feel the need to go into. lol
