Old Testament (9)

1475478000-2Often people are afraid to read Leviticus. Leviticus can be a difficult book to read and understand. But we can learn many things from studying this book.
There are five offerings mentioned in Leviticus — the burnt offering, the meal offering, the peace offering, the trespass offering and the sin offering. Each offering has a purpose, and they all point to Jesus in the New Testament. The burnt offering mentioned in our Bible verses involved killing an animal that had nothing wrong with it. Blood had to be splashed. And God would accept it to make a person pure.
Jesus became our “burnt offering.” He could do this because He never did anything wrong. He was killed on a cross, and His blood covered all our sins. Because of what Jesus did for us, we can be made pure. Then God will accept us.
Isn’t that neat? Maybe now you will be more excited to read and learn from Leviticus!
