Sparrows Sold For A Farthing

Jesus said, "Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing?"

For what purpose were they sold?

They are not among the sacrificial fowl, and certainly would not be enough to make a meal.

Any ideas?

Like I was saying Nicole, the feathers and skins and wool of the lamb were not part of the sacrifice. If you can clearly show in detail they were, please show those scriptures.

Cluny wants to know where YOU got your information? Cluny is so obsessed with me in every post, continually misrepresenting my posts just to get in a snarky remark, he failed to see you were the one making such a claim....or did he?

Yes Cluny, you ACT like one sitting in dirty depends all day, taking your irritability out on others your imagination overreacts to, possibly a urine back up to your brain.

If you want to diagnosis me, I will be more than happy to diagnose you.

Such a snowflake Cluny. WHINE WHINE WHINE. It's just not a manly thing to do. You have the disposition of a jr high GIRL. Are you an effeminate ? That would make sense of your antics. I think it's a fair question.

\\ Men have no business talking to anyone especially women like he does.\\

Are you claiming the right to talk to men the way you talk to me?

\\ He's a boorish brute.\\

And what do your words to me make you?

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 12/6/19


Let's see.

Kathr says I am rude to women, then says I have urine on my brain. (This is after accusing me of sitting in messy diapers.)

Do I understand kath right?

Just who is being rude to whom here?

Kathr, just how have I insulted you or any other women? Please be specific.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

kathr4453:

You wrote: I will fight fire with fire ...

But that isn't how Jesus taught us to interact. He didn't say reactive "Do unto others as they HAVE DONE unto you". He said pro-active "Do unto others AS YOU WOULD HAVE THEM do unto you" (Luke 6:31). He didn't say "if someone strikes you, strike them back". He said "If someone strikes you, turn the other cheek, so they can strike you again" (Matthew 5:39, Luke 6:29). He didn't say "Hate your enemies". He said "Love your enemies" (Luke 6:27) and "If your enemy hungers or thirsts, give him food or drink - that way you heap coals of fire on his head" (Romans 12:20).

All of Luke 6 is good.

Yes, I will fight fire with fire until Clunky knocks it off. Men have no business talking to anyone especially women like he does. He's a boorish brute.

kathr4453:

You wrote: Again Cluny, you have urine on the brain......

Regardless of what Cluny may or may not have done, is it REALLY necessary to stoop to such a level of insults?

Would you like it if other people used such language to you? If not, you shouldn't use such language to them.

(I also couldn't find any "nasty attacks", at least not in this blog, unless you consider the honest question "What studies have you made that lead you to this conclusion?" an "attack").
---StrongAxe on 12/5/19


Cluny, I see Nicole did answer me, saying what you accused me of saying...and you even knew that and answered her. YIKES! I never said the wool, skin etc were sacrificed. And I see You already gave Nicole this answer. So ask Nicole what studies SHE made that lead her to her conclusion!


During the First Temple and Second Temple periods, the burnt offering was a twice-daily animal sacrifice offered on the altar in the temple in Jerusalem that was completely consumed by fire. The skin of the animal, however, was not burnt but given to the priests respective of their priestly division. These skins are listed as one of the twenty-four priestly gifts in Tosefta Hallah.
---kathr4453 on 12/2/19


Again Cluny, you have urine on the brain......not reading posts and running in head long like a moronic fit. Firstly, I Wasn't talking to you....so you may want to ask Nicole where SHE came to the conclusion the lamb with the lambs wool and all, and birds with feathers and all were placed on the alter. Please show scripture that's how sacrifices were defined in detail Clunky. You can't, and that was the point made to Nicole...she atleast knew better than to answer. You like a fool stepped in her mess. Too funny. So I see, you have your demon acting up again.

Maybe that's why you aren't healed Cluny. When you repent of your nasty attacks MAYBE God might heal your health issues now affecting your brain. I'll pray for you.
---kathr4453 on 12/1/19


kath, are you saying that the entire lamb was burned, hide, fleece, hooves, and all?

What studies have you made that lead you to this conclusion?

Glory to Jesus Christ!

//An Orthodox priest did a study of the Jewish sacrifices and learned that a big part of the support of the Aaronic priests came from the sale of the hides of sacrificial animals.--Cluny on 11/24/19

I am not saying it isn't true, but there something wrong with that study.

Think about it?

We treat the Holy Eucharist as the Jewish people treat their Sacrificial Lambs.

The Passover meal is a prefigurement of Christ's death and the Holy Mass.

Would we sell our leftover Eucharist Hosts to support our Priests?

No, we wouldn't.
---Nicole_Lacey on 11/29/19


\\lease tell me where in the Bible states lambs have to be skinned?\\

Kathr, Sparrows are birds. Anyway Jesus said it in the NT. He isn't taking about food prices.

Because the OT didn't list every single fowl/bird by name you can't use sparrows?

The writer is assuming you know what is a bird.

Turn it around. If the birds are not meant for sparrows as well what is a sparrow to you?

If I said bring bread for Thanksgiving, does it mean you can't bring yeast rolls?

Bread and rolls are different to you?

Please tell me where in the Bible states lambs have to be skinned?

//so you say burning WOOL was also part of the sacrifice?//

Yes. A person can not give a half offering.

Exodus 12:4 and V10

Hair is part of the sheep. It has DNA. As your hair has DNA
---Nicole_Lacey on 11/23/19


I know birds were sacrificed, but where does it specifically say SPARROWS ...in the OT. ARENT YOU ASSUMING MUCH? And where is OT instructions concerning the feathers? Even when Lambs were laid on the alter, are you saying they were not skinned first...so you say burning WOOL was also part of the sacrifice? Please show scripture supporting your theory.
---kathr4453 on 11/20/19


Kathr: Cluny says they were not sacrificial birds, you say they were. Who is correct?//

The Bible. I gave Scripture backing up my statement.

I looked it up and he didn't.

//...their was no instruction for sacrificing the feathers of any if the birds, so they all could have been used for feather beds.//

???

Feathers are part of the bird.

Are you claiming they would told to remove the feathers PRIOR from sacrificing the one bird?

Where it that in the Bible?

Please follow your own rule.

Plus, the one bird released also loses his/her feathers?

Plus, where in the Bible states the Jews had feather beds?

A lot of assumptions on your part don't you think?
---Nicole_Lacey on 11/20/19


Nicole, Cluny says they were not sacrificial birds, you say they were. Who is correct? Anyway, whether they were or weren't ...their was no instruction for sacrificing the feathers of any if the birds, so they all could have been used for feather beds.

//Maybe their feathers were used for feather beds...
---kathr4453 on 11/19/19

Leviticus 14:7b
After that, he is to release the live bird in the open fields.

The other one was killed whole. Jewish people were not allowed to sacrifice anything half way.
---Nicole_Lacey on 11/19/19


Who knows, but it shows that even the least valued things mean a lot to God, and how much more our value.
Maybe their feathers were used for feather beds...
---kathr4453 on 11/19/19


Sparrows were acceptable for sacrifice

Leviticus 14:4

...the priest shall order that two live clean birds and some cedar wood, scarlet yarn and hyssop be brought for the person to be cleansed.
---Nicole_Lacey on 11/19/19


My guess would be to keep as pets.
