Bible Commentary for Leviticus 1:4

Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 1:4


1:4 He shall put his hand - Both his hands, #Lev 8:14|,18, and #Lev 16:21|. Whereby he signified, that he willingly gave it to the Lord. That he judged himself worthy of that death which it suffered in his stead; and that he laid his sins upon it with an eye to him upon whom God would lay the iniquity of us all, #Isa 53:6|, and that together with it he did freely offer up himself to God. To make atonement - Sacramentally; as directing his faith and thoughts to that true propitiatory sacrifice which in time was to be offered up for him. And although burnt - offerings were commonly offered by way of thanksgiving; yet they were sometimes offered by way of atonement for sin, that is, for sins in general, as appears from #Job 1:5|, but for particular sins there were special sacrifices.
