On one of the Jewish Feasts, Aaron, the first high priest of the Jews, noticed that many of the Jewish children gathered together were wearing beautiful and elaborate clothes specifically for the holiday. These children met in a large tent very close to the Tabernacle of meeting and got to know each other. They came from Egypt, Greece, Italy, Syria, and so on. They were all foreigners born of Jewish families and they were very proud to title themselves as children of God.
Aaron decided attending one of these meetings would be a great opportunity for him to meet and talk with the children to try and establish a good relationship with them. As Aaron walked in to meet with the children, all those who were playing turned around to notice the high priest and smiled with a look of confusion on their faces. They were thinking, “Why the first high priest is walking towards us, and what does he want from us?”
Most of them felt a sense of respect and admiration towards Aaron. To Aaron’s surprise, some of the children ran towards him and hugged him tight. He embraced them one by one and kissed them. They probably met with him before, and felt his caring paternity, his love, his simplicity, and yearning towards talking with them for their benefit.
The shy kids did not move towards Aaron, but he encouraged them to talk with him and started asking them their names and told them that he was glad that children from all over the world came to celebrate the yearly Feasts; Passover, Tabernacles, and Pentecost.
After they greeted the high priest, a child asked him: «Father, can I ask you some questions about the Tabernacle of meeting, the sacrifices, priests, Levites, and many of the cleansing rituals, because many of the non-Jewish kids ask me why we cherish the sacrifices, honor the priests and the Levites, and practice the ritual of cleansing to prevent worshiping idols, nor eat meat offered to idols?»
Aaron smiled and told the kids that he would meet with them every day until all of their questions were answered fully.
This illustrated book answers many questions: “Why do we offer so many animal sacrifices like the pagans do?”, “How are sacrifices symbols of the sacrifice of the coming Messiah?”, Why did God assign the tribe of Levites to serve Him?, Why did God choose the Levites to be his servants, if God loves everyone? “Why does God give us so many rules to live by throughout life? Like when a baby is born, or someone dies, or when a believer touches something impure, or when someone catches a disease of leprosy, or when a house gets infected with the disease of leprosy on the walls etc. Are these things specific acts of God?”, “Why did the Lord talk about the Feasts and Holidays at the end of the book instead of in the beginning?”
