vision of all the worshippers performing priestlyservice? There they are, a family of priests,with priestly status and office. "Ye can allprophesy one by one," is divine authority conceded to all those spiritual priests. The HighPriest has gone in, and they are left behind inALL AT IT! 171wilderness testimony, priests unto their God." All of you have a hymn" surely that is a sacrifice of praise 1 Now, only a priest, remember, canoffer a sacrifice !To object, as some rightly do, that Paul hereregulates the said priestly sacrifices of praise ismerely to emphasise this very Levitical analogy.For when, by the commandment of the Lord, Paulsaid that they all could so offer the sacrifice of praise, the priesthood of all believers was therebyacknowledged. To regulate the godly exercise of such ministry as he proceeds forthwith to do, ismerely to accentuate that very priestly aspect of the Corinth Assembly. For the Levites were nota mob, but served in orderly courses. HencePaul, by the commandment of the Lord, foundson their very spiritual priesthood to declare thatall things must be done " decently and in order. "The very Levitical phrase this, used in 1 Chron.vi. 32 to remind us that, priests though they allwere, yet did they "wait on their office accordingto their order." "Ye can all prophesy one byone." That is their Levite birthright. "Letthe prophets speak two or three." That is theLevites in their courses. "Ye can all prophesy172 MISSION STUDIESone by one" does not stupidly mean, "all in oneday"!inThere is no cheap ad captandum analogy here.The mere edge, this, of that rich vein of Leviticalanalogy so beautifully elaborated by Miss Haber-shon. 1 Quite one hundred and forty sober pointsof analogy she adduces between the priesthoodof Israel and the Church of God! The inter-penetration, too, of this analogy absolutelyperfect. In fact, after reading The Priests andLevites, one sees at a glance that on this subjecthe alone is divinely theological who is analogical.
