I hope you are traveling alright and are getting through ya reading. To be honest I have fallen behind a little and need to catch up. Not the worlds fastest reader but keen to make it to the end.
I guess the first thing I think after reading the first four chapters of Leviticus is that God must like BBQ’s. He loves the smell of meat (and in some cases grain) cooking on the fire – and to that I say amen!
On a more serious note, the thing that strikes me when I read these chapters is the detail that God outlines for the different offerings. I guess for me, the detail and the fact that the sacrifices need to be perfect, points to God’s holiness and how much he hates our sin.
All this makes me want to praise God for Jesus – our lamb without defect or blemish.
Question: Why do you think it says in Leviticus chapter 1:4 that the person making the offering needs to lay their hands on the offering?
