The Bronze Serpent [Bible Reading 3/13 Week]

  Posted on   by   No comments

During their time of wandering in the wilderness, the Israelites became ungrateful and impatient. As a consequence, God sent poisonous snakes into their camp. In response to their pleas for mercy, God commanded Moses to lift a bronze serpent on a staff. Whenever someone looked at the serpent, they were healed. Jesus later claimed this story pointed forward to His being lifted high on the cross. By trusting in His identification with sinners, we are given eternal life and are called to be His ambassadors.
