LEVITICUS

OBSERVATION:

LEVITICUS INSTRUCTED OLD TESTAMENT ISRAEL REGARDING

SACRIFICES AND RITUALS FOR WORSHIP AND GOD’S REGULATIONS FOR EVERYDAY LIFE. CHRISTIANS TODAY ARE UNDER A NEW COVENANT INSTITUTED BY CHRIST’S DEATH ON CALVARY AS THE SUPREME, ULTIMATE AND HUMAN SACRIFICE FOR MANS’ SIN. THIS STUDY ADDRESSES OFFENSES AGAINST FELLOW MEN.

INTERPRETATION:

READ LEVITICUS 6: 1-7

POINTS TO PONDER:

THE TRESPASS OFFERING REQUIRED A LAMB. IT WAS SACRIFICED AS ATONEMENT FOR UNINTENTIONAL SINS THAT REQUIRED REIMBURSEMENT TO THE OFFENDED PARTY. SOME OF THE BODY PARTS WERE OFFERED TO GOD. THE REMAINDER OF THE LAMB WAS CONSUMED WITHIN THE TABERNACLE COURT.

THE TRESPASS OFFERING SPEAKS FORWARD TO THE PERSON AND WORK OF CHRIST’S SACRIFICE ON CALVARY. READ COLOSSIANS 2: 17 -18. SOME FALSE TEACHERS TRIED TO BIND THEMSELVES WITH OUTWARD OBSERVANCES OF JUDAISM PARTICULARLY WHAT FOODS TO EAT. PAUL, A JEW, INSTRUCTED THE COLOSSIANS BELIEVERS TO REJECT THESE FALSE TEACHING. THE OLD OBSERVANCES WERE SIMPLY A SHADOW OF CHRIST. JUDAISM AND ITS RITES POINTED TO CHRIST. PAUL INSTRUCTED THE COLOSSIAN BELIEVERS THAT CHRIST HAD ALREADY SET THEM FREE BY HIS DEATH, BURIAL, RESURRECTION AND ASCENSION TO HIS HEAVENLY FATHER.

APPLICATION:

YES, RESTITUTION WAS MANDATORY IN THE OLD TESTAMENT LAW. CHRIST PAID THE DEBT FOR YOUR SPIRITUAL RESTITUTION IN THE NEW COVENANT.
