12.02.2016 – Old Testament: Eze 48.12
To read the Bible in a year, read Ezekiel 47–48 on December 2, In the year of our Lord 2016

As the closing chapter of the Book of Ezekiel pictures the temple and the land, the Lord wanted the Jews to know about a certain part of the land,
“And this district of land that is set apart shall be to them a thing most holy by the border of the Levites” (Ezekiel 48.12).
The Levites would locate next to the land where they would work, and their work involved the holy. Since that land served holy purposes, they had to set it apart from the rest of Israel that their common doings would not defile the holiness of that particular land.
- What is holy for Christians today?
- If worship services are holy, from what should they be set apart?
