Podcast #418: “Thank You Jesus For The Blood” by Charity Gayle

Play episode

I’m Michelle Nezat and I hope to inspire you to discover and meditate on God’s Word through the songs you’re listening to on the radio.

If the gospel message were a song, it would be “Thank You Jesus For The Blood” by Charity Gayle. The good news is that Christ’s sacrifice covers our sins offering us eternal salvation.

Join me as we explore the Day of Atonement in the Old Testament and how it foreshadowed the “once and for all” sacrifice of Jesus.

In this episode, I discuss:

  • Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – this week’s Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include:
    • Consult an overview of the book
    • Read larger chunks of Scripture
    • Read and keep on reading by setting a timer rather than focusing on chapters read
  • A resource for breaking apart this song lyric by lyric and pointing to Scripture –
  • Leviticus – The Most Exciting Book You’ve (N)ever Read – David Schrock Article
  • The chiastic structure of Leviticus (so fascinating) – Meeting God in the Margin Article
  • Consulting an overview of Leviticus before reading – Video
  • The Day of Atonement as the pinnacle of Leviticus – Leviticus 16
  • The old system as a shadow and preview of what was to come in Christ – Hebrews 10:1-2
  • Our redemption secured forever – Hebrews 9:11-12
  • Our purification that leads to holy worship – Hebrews 9:13-15
  • The purification of the tabernacle and Christ’s fulfillment – Hebrews 9:24-26
  • The “once and for all” nature of Christ’s payment – Hebrews 10:10-11
  • The scapegoat – Leviticus 16:20-22

Weekly Challenge

Read Leviticus for yourself. You know you need a reason. Use this episode as your reason to roll up your sleeves and read it. But read it as it is written with its chiastic structure in mind. Consult the Bible Project video to understand the design better before reading Leviticus for yourself. When you finish reading Leviticus (with the Day of Atonement as its pinnacle), dive into Hebrews 9 and 10 to see Christ as the final sacrifice. Then sing along with Charity Gayle, “Thank you, Jesus, for the blood applied.”
