Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 4:6


4:6 Seven times - A number much used in scripture, as a number of perfection; and here prescribed, either to shew that his sins needed more then ordinary purgation, and more exercise of his faith and repentance, both which graces he was obliged to join with that ceremonial rite. Before the veil - The second veil dividing between the holy of holies, which is generally called the veil of the sanctuary.

    To Tony on Lev, 4 - all the O.T. was a 'schoolteacher' to bring us to Christ. It's all a 'shadow' of the N.T. Jesus' sacrifice was the fulfillment of the O.T. The shedding of blood in the Old was foretelling of Jesus shed blood. That' why the old had to be repeted many times - because it was not PERFECT; Jesus was PERFECT.
  • Rebecca
    Animal sacrifices provided a means via which the Israelites could be forgiven of sins, because Christ had not yet died. The animals were sacrificed as a substitute for the sinner (because the wages of sin is death), in much the same way that Jesus was sacrificed in order that our sins can be forgiven. So Jesus fulfilled the sin offering by dying in our place, allowing us access to eternal life.
  • Robert W.
    Tony, this chapter deals with instructions to the children of isreal on how to atone to sins through ignorance. This only applies to Hebrews.
