Elder Brandon Hooven – Cities of Refuge

This sermon begins in Numbers 35:9 and Joshua 20:1 where the Lord established cities of refuge for those who had committed murder but no sin was committed in their heart.  These cities allowed for safety and a fair trial before the congregation since humanity can make mistakes.  Elder Hooven explains each city, the meaning behind each name, and parallels them all to Jesus.  Like these cities provided refuge from death in the literal, Jesus Christ is the refuge for the child of God, whose eternal judgement is also death.  Elder Hooven proclaims that Christ Jesus is our place of rest and encourages us to flee to the rock in all aspects of our daily lives.
