Scofield's Reference Notes
Numbers 17



Verse 8

rod of Aaron

Aaron's rod that budded: Type of Christ in resurrection, owned of God as High Priest. Aaron's priesthood had been questioned in the rebellion of Korah, so God Himself will confirm it Numbers 17:5. Each of the tribe-heads brought a perfectly dead rod; God put life into Aaron's only. So all the authors of religions have died, Christ among them, but only Christ was raised from the dead, and exalted to be a high priest.; Hebrews 4:14; Hebrews 5:4-10.
