Change a Redirect
I believe that Levitical Priesthood should be a page of it's own, describing the Levites according to what the Tanakh, Rabbinical Traditions, and other historical sources say, rather than redirecting to this page.--Josiah 00:15, 29 Oct 2004 (UTC)
- If there are no objections, I will make a page out of Levitical Priesthood, or redirect it to a page that talks about the jobs that the Levites carried out.--Josiah 22:04, 29 Oct 2004 (UTC)
I was uncomfortable with the section title "Aaronic priesthood in Protestant Xanity" as it implies that it has some sort of role, which it does not. I think this new title is more accurate, and the section is at least more concise.Rose bartram
Bibleical Aaronic priesthood, LDS Aaronic priesthood
There needs to be a page where the Biblical Aaronic priesthood is the subject. There the understanding of it can be expressed though the Old Testament Law, their deities, rights, conditions and so forth be the subject of the page.
This LDS “priesthood” which is in contradiction to the Old Testament Law, should have it’s own page where they may do what they wish.(talk) 20:53, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

Significance of the Aaronic priesthood in mainstream Christianity
The Jewish priesthood of the Temple period is, for most Christians, primarily of historical interest. In the book of Exodus, God ordained Aaron and his sons Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar to be priests for the Lord. According to the Law, only descendants of Aaron, or Aaronites, could be priests. The priest's role was to intercede before God on behalf of the nation of Israel. Within many Christian traditions and beliefs, the new covenant established by Jesus, and later the destruction of the temple, brought this period to an end.
The priesthood also has been invested with metaphorical significance in Christianity. Jesus is considered to be the culmination of the High Priesthood. The Jewish priesthood has therefore been seen as a type for the priesthood of Christ, as the Jewish sacrifice was of Christ's sacrifice. By his sacrifice as Priest he reconciles God to men, fulfilling the old law. Cross, F.L. (1974). The Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church. New York: Oxford University Press. p. 1122–1123.

Proposed merge with Deacon (Latter Day Saints)
Proposed merge with Teacher (Latter Day Saints)
Deacon and Teacher are short, poorly-sourced articles, and unlikely to be much more than that. Since they are two degrees of the Aaronic preisthood, which isn't particularly long either, a merge seems appropriate.20:26, 27 January 2017 (UTC)
