Summary: These five offerings remind us of what Christ has done for us in offering Himself on the cross.

INTRODUCTION

A. Key question: How can sinful humans worship a holy

God?

1. The answer for the Jew was found in this

book - Levitcus

2. In Genesis, we see humanity ruined by the fall

3. In Exodus we see God’s chosen people redeemed

from bondage

4. In Leviticus, God’s people are revived through

worship.

B. Like no Old Testament Book, Leviticus is filled

with pictures of the Christ

1. Without exception, every offering and feast

provides another vivid portrait of Jesus.

God’s sacrificial lamb who takes away the sin

of world - Jn.1:29

2. In the first five chapters, there are 5

different offerings presented

3. Each one portrays Jesus Christ from a

different perspective.

I. THE BURNT OFFERING - Lev.1

A. This offering was laid on the altar and was

completely consumed in fire and smoke 1:1-9

B. The Burnt offering pictures Jesus Christ offering

Himself to His Father in complete obedience and

surrender.

1. We see the Savior’s dedication, devotion and

desire to please the Father

2. Laying down his life voluntarily - Jn.10:17-18 C. This offering reminds us of who we are!

1. Priests offering ourselves as living sacrifices

I Pet.2:5-9; Rom.12:1-2

2. Are we willing to put our all on the altar for

the Lord - time, talents and treasure? When

we do the Lord will be well pleased 1:13

II. THE GRAIN OFFERING - Lev.2

A. Offering of grain or cereals made of fine flour

1. The grain was grown by the people.

2. It was ground up into fine flour by the

people - the work of their own hands. They

were offering the fruit if their labors to the

Lord.

B. So it is with Jesus Christ - John 9:4

1. He performed all of His works for the Father’s

glory and pleasure

2. As he approached the cross, he presented his

ultimate, final and eternal grain offering.

3. He offered up His life as a fine flour, and it

was perfectly accepted,never to be offered

again.

C. Today we must come to Christ with our very best,

not leftovers

1. On this side of the cross we must realize that

all we have comes from Him, and we owe Him our

thanks, lives and all we have.

2. Heb.11:4 - Abel offered a more excellent

sacrifice. So must we!

3. Are we really giving God our best and offering

Him acceptable sacrifices? Rom.12:1-2

III. THE PEACE OFFERING - Lev.3

A. This is also known as the Peace Offering

1. Part of the sacrifice was laid on the altar,

part to the priests and the remainder was

eaten by the worshipper.

2. This sacrifice spoke of fellowship, friendship

and joint participation

B. Jesus Christ is our Peace or Fellowship Offering

1. He made peace through the blood of the Cross -

Eph.2:14-17

2. And through Him we have fellowship and

communion with God

3. There is peace with God through our LJC -

Rom.5:1-2

4. On that basis we can have sweet fellowship

together - I John 1:7

“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another,and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin”

IV. THE SIN OFFERING - Lev.4

A. This was not a voluntary offering like the other

three.

1. This offering was required by all - priests,

rulers, congregation -everyone!
