Jesus got baptized at the age of thirty since the sanctuary service is allowed when they become thrity?

Those who slander the truth about the “throne of David” that the Second Coming Christ Ahnsahnghong fulfilled, say, “Jesus was baptized at the age of 30. But it was only because the priests were to begin serving in the temple when they were 30 years old (1 Ch 23:2-5; Nu 4:1-3, 21-23, 29-30).” Let’s find out why their insistence is contrary to the teachings of the Bible.

  • Num 4:2-3 “Take a census of the Kohathite branch of the Levites by their clans and families. Count all the men from thirty to fifty years of age who come to serve in the work in the Tent of Meeting.

1. The record is not for the priests, but for the “Levites”

Where in the Bible is there a record that the priests began to serve in the temple at the age of 30? There is no verse that says that.

The verses they provided?are not about the priests, but about the “Levites” who helped the priests and served in the temple. Not all the descendants of the tribe of Levi became priests. Among the tribe of Levi, only the descendants of Aaron became the priests. The Kohathites, the Gershonites, the Merarites and others from the tribe of Levi helped the priests from the descendants of Aaron and served in the temple; they are the “Levites.”

When Jesus gave the parable of the Good Samaritan, He said that a priest passed by the man who had fallen into the hands of robbers, and so did a Levite, but a Samaritan took care of him (Lk 10:30-37). Thus, a priest and a Levite are definitely different.

The age “30,” which they insisted on, was not the age when the priests began to serve in the temple, but it is the age when the Levites began to serve in the temple. In addition, the age when the Levites began to serve was not only 30. Once, God ordered the Levites to begin to serve at the age of 25 (Nu 8:23-26), and later He ordered them to begin to serve at the age of 20 (1 Ch 23:24-32; Ezr 3:8).

2. Jesus was a high priest in the order of Melchizedek, not in the order of Aaron

Did Jesus follow the order of Aaron? No.
It is clear that the age “30” mentioned in the verses they used was not the age when the priests began to serve in the temple. But even if it were, they cannot use those verses for Jesus because Jesus was not a priest in the order of Aaron.

  • Heb 7:11 If perfection could have been attained through the Levitical priesthood, why was there still need for another priest to come-one in the order of Melchizedek, not in the order of Aaron?

Jesus was a high priest in the order of Melchizedek, not in the order of Aaron (Heb 6:20). So, there is no prophetical reason that Jesus had to begin His ministry at the same age as that of the priests who began their priesthood in the order of Aaron. (In fact, the age was not of the priests, but of the Levites.)

According to the prophecy that Christ would reign on the throne of David, Jesus came as the prophetical David and was baptized at the age of 30 and began His ministry just as David became king at the age of 30. Therefore, it is a non-biblical insistence that Jesus was baptized at the age of 30 because the priests began to serve in the temple at the age of 30 in the Old Testament.

    Heb 5:8~10 “though he was a Son, yet learned obedience by the things which he suffered. Having been made perfect, he became to all of those who obey him the author of eternal salvation, named by God a high priest after the order of Melchizedek.”

    Jesus was named a high priest after the order of Melchizedek by God, not the order of Aaron, therefore it doesn’t make any sense to say that Jesus got baptized at the age of 30 because the priests of the order of Aaron began to serve in the temple at the age of 30 using Num 4.2~3 which actually does not say anything about the priests but, Levites.

    Christ Ahnsahnghong god baptized at the age of 30 according to the prophecy of the throne of David and blessed us eternal life with the bread and wine of Passover according the order of Mechizedek just like Jesus had done 2,000 years ago.

      Right, the Passover is undeniable evidence that Christ Ahnsahnghong is the second coming Jesus.

    I’ve not heard about the order of Melchizedek. Did Jesus come as the priest from the order of Melchizedek?
    What’s the relationship between Jesus and Melchizedek?

      Mechizedek is the shadow of Jesus Christ.

      In the Old Testament Times, Mechizedeck was the only priest that blessed Abraham with bread and wine while the others blessed with sacrificed beasts(Gen 14:18-23) and Jesus was the only one who blessed eternal life to us with Passover bread and wine while the others still kept the Passover with one year sacrificed lamb.

    Christ came in the Order of Melchizedek. He is the high priest forever.
    We can not be fooled by the words of false prophets. Obviously because
    of a lack of understand and hopelessy trying to fit together an argument
    they have reached out for a line.

    This is so clear and easy to understand. Jesus Christ came in fulfillment of what the prophet Isaiah wrote in Isaiah 9:6-7. If Jesus was not baptized at the age of 30 how would He have fulfilled the prophesy of ruling on David’s throne? It is evident that he had to get baptized and begin His ministry at the ae of 30 in order to fulfill what was written about Him, if not, we would never have been able to recognize Him.

    Wow it’s so clear the Levites and priest are different from each other. Jesus is High Priest not levite and was baptized at 30years old to fulfill the throne of king David to show that he was 2nd coming Christ

    Jesus being baptized at the age of 30 doesn’t have anything to do with the Levites but with fulfilling prophecy’s (Hebr 7:11; 6:20)
    God planed it like this so His children recognize him. As we see, Apostle Paul believed in Jesus because he fulfilled prophecy! And he went and proclaimed the good news about Jesus wherever he could go.
    In the same way we have to understand the prophecies and see who fulfilled them and believe in Him who did, namely Christ Ahnsahnghong!

    Although we try to interpret the scriptures with our own thoughts, they are not God Almighty thoughts. There are so many verses that clearly prove to every word God has spoken, though God does not need to justify to anyone. The priest were not assigned to work at the age of 30, The Lord God instructed the Levites to work at the Tent of Meeting, they began to work in the temple as early as 20 years. Jesus began his ministry at the age of 30 years to fulfill David’s Throne. This is how to understand 2 Coming Christ Ahnsahnghong who has come to bring Salvation. We must study fully the entire 66 books of the Bible to understand the prophecies contained in them and not be deceived by the foolish things spoke without full understanding.
