The offering of the Red Heifer is considered one of the deepest mysteries of the Torah, one that requires obedience without human understanding. It is said that Solomon, in all of his wisdom, did not understand the purpose of the burning of the red heifer. So, as Christians, thousands of years after the initial instruction given to Moses in Numbers 19, what can we glean from the ashes of the red heifer?
"But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."
1 Corinthians 15:57
