Olive Oil


“My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment.”
Luke 7:46

“Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.”
James 5:14-15

“And the priest shall take some of the log of oil, and pour it into the palm of his own left hand: And the priest shall dip his right finger in the oil that is in his left hand, and shall sprinkle of the oil with his finger seven times before the Lord: And of the rest of the oil that is in his hand shall the priest put upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot, upon the blood of the trespass offering: And the remnant of the oil that is in the priest’s hand he shall pour upon the head of him that is to be cleansed: and the priest shall make an atonement for him before the Lord.”
Leviticus 14:15-18


“It was a custom of antiquity to consecrate persons to the sacerdotal and regal offices by anointing them with oil.”

Christ = Christos: from criw – chrio; anointed; > Chrio: probably akin to craomai – chraomai, through the idea of contact; to smear or rub with oil, i.e. (by implication) to consecrate to an office or religious service:–anoint.

“Horns were also used anciently to hold sacred olive oil for anointing kings and priests…Olive oil is a symbol for the light of the Holy Ghost.”

“by the water ye keep the commandment; by the Spirit ye are justified, and by the blood, ye are sanctified.”
Moses 6:60


“Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.”
Matt. 25:1-4
