Genesis 15:9 (c) In this way we may understand the service character of the Lord JESUS CHRIST. He served as a young man. He was crucified after He had been only three and one-half years in public ministry. The Jewish priest began to serve at thirty.

Numbers 19:2-4 (c) This may be taken as a picture of the Lord JESUS CHRIST as a strong, vigorous youth. The red may represent the precious Blood of CHRIST. Both the Saviour and His work at Calvary are necessary to separate us from the world. (See Hebrews 9:13).

Isaiah 15:5 (a) This is an interesting type of the Moabites who, though strong, active and energetic, will need to flee for their lives because of the invading enemy. At three years of age, the heifer is reckoned to have reached his maturity, and is ready for breeding purposes, or other acts which can only be given to a matured animal. (See Jeremiah 48:34).

Hosea 4:16 (a) The heifer evidently is difficult to break for work. This is a picture of this young animal sitting down on her haunches, planting her feet in the ground, and trying to prevent the cowboy from pulling her along. It was GOD's desire to bring Israel back into a place of blessing, but she resisted, refused and held back.

Hosea 10:11 (a) This type represents Israel in her true condition of sincere service to GOD, and her spirit of obedience.
