Slaying the Sacrifice

Mar 23 You remember that last Sabbath day we spoke of two things vitally essential to a true sacrifice, and the first upon which we then enlarged was the laying on of the hands of the offerer upon the victim, by which he accepted it as his sacrifice, and made a typical transfer of his sin from himself to the victim. Now, the second essential thing, of which we are to speak...

Leviticus 1:5

Putting the Hand Upon the Head of the Sacrifice

Mar 16 No doubt there are clear distinctions in the teaching of the burnt offering, the meat offering, the peace offering, and the sin offering. In those various sacrifices we have views of our Lord’s atoning work taken from different stand-points. On another occasion it will be profitable to note these delightful lessons and lay them to heart; but at this time I am not about to enter into such matters. These...

Leviticus 1:4-5

The Red Heifer

Jul 13 BELOVED brethren in Christ, you dwell in great nearness to God. He calls you “a people near unto him.” His grace has made you his sons and daughters, and he is a Father unto you. In you is his word fulfilled, “I will dwell in them and walk in them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.” Remember that your favoured position as children of...

Hebrews 9:13-14

The Sin-Offering for the Common People

Apr 28 VERY much of interesting truth clusters around the sin-offering. The type is well worthy of the most careful consideration, and I regret that we shall not have time this morning to enter into all its details. The reader of the chapter will perceive that it gives us four forms of the same sacrifice. These may be regarded as four views of the same thing, probably views taken by four classes...

Leviticus 4:27-31

The Sin Offering

Mar 10 IN the previous chapters of the book of Leviticus you read of the burnt offering, the peace offering, and the meat offering — all types of our Lord Jesus Christ, as seen from different points of view. Those three sacrifices were sweet savour offerings, and represent the Lord Jesus in his glorious person and perfect righteousness as an offering of a sweet smell unto God. The chapter before us, the...

Leviticus 4:3

The Red Heifer

Aug 30 THE true heading of all the books of Moses is to be found in the words of Jesus, “Moses wrote of me.” Take the Lord Jesus Christ with you as a key, and however difficult the riddles of Leviticus or Numbers may at first sight appear, there is not one enigma in the whole collection which will not speedily open and yield instruction. To the Israelites themselves, these rites and...
