    Leviticus 20:13-21 speaks of some of God's commands to the children of Israel, in the matter of homosexuality, incest & bestiality. God is really saying, that He has not made mankind to behave like this, they do it of their own volition & because of inherent sin in them. His penalty for such behaviour was death, as it was gross wickedness, akin to wilful murder, witchcraft, etc. Fortunately for us, post Crucifixion, that the door of God's Mercy is still open & forgiveness is still available for any caught up in this debauchery. Sadly, the World looks at these relationships as 'Alternative lifestyles', but God clearly says it is Sin & will be judged severely.

    Romans 1:21-23 New Living Translation (NLT)

    21 Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn't worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused. 22 Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools. 23 And instead of worshiping the glorious, ever-living God, they worshiped idols made to look like mere people and birds and animals and reptiles.

    the sacrifice before Christ was commanded by the Lord , was not mans law num:15, God instructed Moses on how it should be done, notice they all had to be unblemished as we are to come to him with a pure heart with our repentance
  • Stanjett
    You are right in saying sacrifices did end with Christs death on the cross for Christians. But why did the Jews quit sacrificing?
  • Vanessa
    I have been told when the Romans destroyed the temple in about 70ad, they have no proper place to preform it anymore, they only could offer it where God allowed it.
  • Vanessa
    sacrifice ended with Christ he was the unblemished lamb of God, he came not to do away with the law but to fulfill it by going to the cross, He died for all our sins, but he did not die for us to continue in sin thinking we are cleansed. Jesus taught the way and he was the word. So the old passed away we no longer keep the old traditions,same as we excepting Christ the old passes away

    Verse 3~Our sacrifices or offerings to Jehovah God must be holy and acceptable. We want to give him our best.

    @Insight777 It's not that it was too harsh a punishment, death is the wage of all sin. But God is the one who judges and can also forgive those who repent, and part of the point of that story were that every one of the people there condemning her were just as guilty and in need of forgiveness as she was.
  • Rocky
    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.

    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, Leviticus 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

    It's how to sacrfice offering to God
  • 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.

    Leviticus is very helpful in giving us YAHs laws and statues on how to live morally and godly

    i really the bible that is online,it 's you 're holding a bible.but it 's on a device
  • Mary Ellen Murphy
    Why do they talk about giving burnt offerings of the best of the herd to be used as a burnt offering? Then in chapt? 2 they are giving flour as a burnt offering. Is flour a gift and meat the offering for attoinment, for sin? If flour is a sacrafice why was Able 's wheat or grain offering not accepted, he was a farmer that was all he had.

    Leviticus 1 gives the message that God is holy and wants us to also be holy. Sacrifices has to made so as to lead holy lives.
  • Antonia kathryn gammad
    God delights our hearts to be always willing to learn and ask HIM guidance in whatever circumstances we may encounter in our daily life
  • Paul osei asibey
    God delights in costly and decent sacrifice and it must be done out of ones heart wholeheartedly
  • Jennie
    This chapter put me in the mind set that everything has an order. And cleanliness is truly what God wants.
  • Debrawhite
    Jesus the redeemer how grateful and AWESOME is that. God loved us so he gave his ONLY begotten Son for our SINS a FRESH new start...I love the Lord not because of what he does but WHO HE IS, NO one could EVER love us more or better. How thankful WE ALL should be for his MERCIES and GRACE, Amen!!
  • Joseph Appiah
    In this chapter, we see the kind of offering and the standard of the offering as well as the acceptable way of making this offering recognised by GOD. In verse 3, everything is summed up an offering without blemish without spot of blame and offered willingly and voluntarily unto the LORD. What a perfect picture of Christ 's sacrifice for all of humanity He was without sin and willingly yielded Himself unto death on the cross for sinful men. This then becomes a perfect guide unto all believers in Christ to offer their lives and bodies as living sacrifices unto the LORD willingly and without blemish as Paul rightly stated in Romans12 1,2.
