Discussion for Leviticus 1

    If Christ was not in the commentary it would be hard to understand. The reason I say that is today the animal sacrifice no longer exist.
  • Insight777
    Jesus did not come to remove laws that are necessary for society like the commandments but Mosaic laws that determine what is sin and what punishment is required, he did come to change. An example Jesus used was death for adultery. He did not say it was not a sin but that death was to harsh a punishment. He fulfills law with temperance. Judging with equity, fairness which Mosaic law does not.

    insight:do you Know The Son of God paid for "Your Salvation"? You must surely know most of Your post are not right. Verse 1: LORD: THE SELF EXISTENT or ETERNAL ONE who is CALLED: JEHOVAH./ Life here is very very, compared to Eternity----Is He Tugging on Your Heart? Time of The End---To The Beginning of---Eternity---Starts in a Twinkling of The Eye.

    "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled." The Law given through Moses and the Prophets, was for our instruction unto the character of God, and the testimony of Christ, to write that Law in our hearts.
  • Insight777
    The word Lord is used because God did not require animal sacrifices. It was the Lord of the land laws that required it. The Mosaic laws (not the 10 commandments) that Jesus was sent to earth to remove. They are man made laws not from God. Men kill innocent animals making them experience pain and die so they can feel their cruelty, evil sin is acceptable to God. God hates it, a pagan sinful act.
  • A disciple
    The religious practice of offering sacrifice to God goes back to Abel. It was the part that made him accepted to God when he came to present himself and give account of himself before the LORD. It was for bringing to remembrance the Word which God spoke from the beginning about the Anointed Saviour to come into the world, to undo the works of the devil, and the sin in man. It was rejected by Cain.
