The Offerings

Listed here are the five key offerings the Israelites made to God. They made these offerings in order to have their sins forgiven and to restore their fellowship with God. The death of Jesus Christ made these sacrifices unnecessary. Because of his death, our sins were completely forgiven, and fellowship with God has been restored.

The Blueprint

    1. WORSHIPING A HOLY GOD (1:1-17:16)

    2. Instruction for the offerings

    3. Instruction for the priest

    4. Instructions for the people

    5. Instruction for the altar

    6. LIVING A HOLY LIFE (18:1-27:34)

    7. Standards for the people

    8. Rules for priests

    9. Seasons and festivals

    10. Receiving God’s blessing

God provided specific directions for the kind of worship that would be pleasing to him. These instructions teach us about the nature of God and can help us develop a right attitude toward worship. Through the offerings we learn of the seriousness of sin and the importance of bringing our sins to God for forgiveness.

God gave clear standards to the Israelites for living a holy life . They were to be separate and distinct from the pagan nations around them. In the same way, all believers should be separated from sin and dedicated to God. God still wants to remove sin from the lives of his people.
