Today’s Readings — Leviticus 24-27 & Mark 6:45-56

The last chapters of Leviticus describe the year of Jubilee. This event is part of a beautiful song by Michael Card called Jubilee. Below are the lyrics. The song can easily be found on YouTube online.

Jubilee by Michael Card

The Lord provided for a time for the slaves to be set free
For the debts to all be canceled so His chosen ones could see
His deep desire was for forgiveness, He longed to see their liberty
And His yearning was embodied in the Year of Jubilee

Chorus:
Jubilee, Jubilee
Jesus is our Jubilee
Debts forgiven
Slaves set free
Jesus is our Jubilee

At the Lord’s appointed time His deep desire became a man
The heart of all true jubilation and with joy we understand
In his voice we hear a trumpet sound that tells us we are free
He is the incarnation Of the year of Jubilee

(Chorus)

To be so completely guilty, given over to despair
To look into your judges face, and see a Savior there

(Chorus)
