Know Your Bible 23


  1. Priests had blood put on their right ears at their consecration (Ex 29:20; Lv 8:23). The same act constituted part of the cleansing process for healed lepers (Lv 14:14).
  2. The Apostle Peter cut off the ear of the high priest's servant with a sword (Jn 18:10). Jesus then touched the man's ear and healed him, saying 'No more of this!' (Lk 22:51)
  3. Freed slaves who opted to stay with their masters had their ears voluntarily pierced with an awl (Ex 21:6; Dt 15:17).
