The Levitical Priesthood
The Levitical Priesthood.
This was constituted after the law of a carnal commandment. Aaron was called of God to be the first high priest of the nation, and the office was perpetuated in his family so long as the Mosaic Covenant should continue the constitution of the kingdom. The office was held for life; but the service of the ordinary priests only for a term of years. The Levitical priesthood was changeable, being left of one to another-Hence it is said to be, with father, with mother, and with pedigree, having both beginning of days and end of life.
