Exodus 28:32 And there shall be an hole in the top of it, in the midst thereof: it shall have a binding of woven work round about the hole of it, as it were the hole of an habergeon, that it be not rent.

I set out to compare the Word of God with an antibody which protects us from infection, i.e. sin. Cleaver me, this should be a no brainer, just take the definition of an antibody and find scriptural references that will unite the protective properties of antibodies with the protective properties of the gospel. OOPS.

The technical definition and active properties of antibodies is far from being a one liner. I got overwhelmed by the complexity of antibodies. In frustration I started to examine the diagram for understanding. Diagrams are so much simpler. You have the antibody structure that has a hole with a pattern in it at the top of its structure. This hole is so designed to bond with the antigen of the invading bacteria or virus. The antibody does not destroy the antigen, it binds it so that the antigen cannot attack other cells.

So I look up bind in the bible and what do I find in Exodus 28:32 but a literal description of the action between the antibody and the antigen. Not only that, I received a bonus word, the habergeon. I had to look it up and to my wonder and delight it is a coat of armor, protection. No way am I clever enough to make this up. Look it up for yourselves.

Psalm 91:4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
