The Laying on of Hands in the Old Testament

Numbers 8:10, “When you bring the Levites before the Lord, the people of Israel shall lay their hands on the Levites…” ESV

Today we read where the congregation lay hands on the Levites and dedicated them to the service of God.

In the New Testament, Paul lay hands on Timothy and prayed God would give him a gift to be used in the service of God.

2 Timothy 1:6, 7, “For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands, for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” ESV
