Sanctum |Hospitality 1/3

27 April, 2015 § Leave a comment

I want to do a series on hospitality, and am convinced that the starting point is in a rudimentary grounding in the Holy of Holies.

In the Old Covenant Temple, the place where God the Spirit resided was the “Holy of Holies”. Latin translated this to, “Sanctum Sanctorum,” the Holy place where Holiness dwells.

adjective ho·ly \ˈhō-lē\

1: devoted entirely to the deity or the work of the deity (The state of the place or person).
2: exalted or worthy of complete devotion as one perfect in goodness and righteousness (The Quality God)

To be clear, the high priest of that year was the only one allowed to enter the sanctum sanctorum and only then on the day of atonement where he would make a sin offering for himself and the nation for those sins done in ignorance.

For further reading, consider: Lev. 16:29-34, 23:36-32Heb. 9:7Rope Around the Ankle Myth. 

Next: New Covenant Temple
