I’ve recently been listening to (who else!) James Jordan’s talks on Revelation and have a question about the symbology of the Eagle in the Bible.
Eagles seem to be symbolic of Rome’s destruction of Jerusalem (Deuteronomy 28:49, Matthew 24:28)
And eagles also seem to have more positive streams of symbolism: Eagles as symbolic of angels, prophets, the association with Gospel of John.
Is there a way to merge these streams?
What should we make of the distinction between clean and unclean animals? Is there some deeper reason that some animals are considered clean and others unclean?
Peter Leithart, James Jordan, David Field, and I continue our series on the book of Leviticus. This week we discuss the general significance of sacrifices and offerings.
