Bearing guilt for the people 

Old Testament: Exo 28.38

To read the Bible in a year, read Exodus 27–28 on February 1, In the year of our Lord Christ 2022

By Don Ruhl 

When the high priest entered the temple on behalf of the people, the Lord wanted him to wear a golden plate on his turban that had engraved on it, “Holy to the Lord.” The Lord spoke to Moses more about it: 

“So it shall be on Aaron’s forehead, that Aaron may bear the iniquity of the holy things which the children of Israel hallow in all their holy gifts; and it shall always be on his forehead, that they may be accepted before the LORD.”

– Exodus 28.38 

Likewise, Jesus bore our sins when he went to the cross (2 Corinthians 5.21), that we might become acceptable to God. 


  • Could the high priest ever enter the tabernacle/temple without that golden plate? 
  • Where did the children of Israel, who were slaves in Egypt, get the gold for such things?
