Discussion for Leviticus 1

  • 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.

    I am going to use a quote here,"Lev. is the bk. that is the gateway to the heart of God. The key message is holiness. This is conveyed over 87 times here, Lev.10:10; 19:2. The great mission of Lev. is to mortal men that behind all the laws, commandments of God stands a HOLY and UNDEFILED God. We, therefore, can trust His word in full assurance." From "The Feasts of Jehovah in Prophecy" - P. Dugas

  • Sonya
    The burnt offering is the example of giving our life totally to God. The sacrifice is for forgiveness of our sins by God. Those are totally different from oNE another. But , directly connected to each other. In Christian life , first we have to accept the sacrifice of our sin by Jesus Christ killed on Cross for us. Then , with offering our lives in a daily order, we live for God.
