III. The Sacrifices - Leviticus

· The sacrificial system was set up to point to the future work of Jesus Christ – there were 5 sacrifices that were instituted in Leviticus:

1. The ____Burnt_______ Offering – Leviticus 1 – This was an offering for sin – it is a picture of Jesus taking on our sin in His perfect form and bearing the penalty – death both physically and spiritually – for us

2. The ______Grain______ Offering – Leviticus 2 - this was an offering of daily devotion – it was a fine flour given to the Lord – grain provides nourishment and Jesus is our bread of Life

3. The ____Fellowship______ Offering (Peace) – Leviticus 3 – this was an animal sacrifice and when it was given, the one who gave it was given a portion to eat himself – it pictures fellowship between God and man – Jesus opened the veil so that we can have that perfect fellowship with His Father

4. The _____Sin________ Offering – Leviticus 4-5:13 – this was an offering for involuntary sins – those they didn’t even realize they were committing – we are guilty not only for what we have done, but for simply who we are – this offering pays the price for all sin and is again a picture of Jesus on the cross

5. The ______Guilt______ – Leviticus 5:14-6:7 – this offering implies restitution for sins we have committed towards others – it was offered to cleanse the conscience towards the Lord and then restitution would be offered to the offended party with an added 5th of what was taken – this is a picture of the restitution that Jesus has made for us – Isaiah 53:10 tells us that He was our guilt offering – He covered it all!

· The difference between a priest and a Levite:

1. A Levite was simply from the tribe of Levi and was an assistant to the priests

2. A priest was from the tribe of Levi and the family of Aaron
