Old Testament Temple, Tabernacle, Sacrifice and our Church

Still going over questions of God and our relation to Him

Old Testament Reading about the instructions to Moses from Mt. Sinai for 40 days and 40 nights Ex 34:28, 10 Commandments, Day of Rest (Ex 34:21), Sanctuary Curtain Ex 26:31, Sanctuary Lamp Ex 27:20 (Hanukkah), Altar Ex 27:1, Offering Ex 29:10, Bull for Sin Lev 5

Offering Sacrifice: an act of offering to God something precious, Such as animal

As a tribute to God, a burnt offering was entirely burnt on the altar, symbolizing total commitment or surrender to God. This is in contrast to other forms of sacrifice (entitled zevach or zevach shelamim), which was partly burnt and most of it eaten in communion at a sacrificial meal.

Jesus is our communion, he is the sacrifice on the cross. See in the Old Testament, how Jesus fulfilled the offering for sin

  • You must make “your offering” (Leviticus 1:2), meaning you can’t offer something that belongs to someone else.
  • You must offer an animal that is a “male without blemish” (v. 3).
  • You must make the offering of your “own voluntary will” (v. 3).
  • You must first bring your offering to “the door of the tabernacle,” which tabernacle represents the place where God dwells (v. 3).
  • You must put your hand on the head of the sacrificial animal and then kill it yourself
  • The priests lay the “head,” “fat,” “inward” organs, and the “legs” on the altar (v. 8–9).

Episode 3 The Ineffable Mystery of God

The kingdom of God is at hand. The ancient Israelites ardently expected Yahweh to accomplish four great things, and Christ accomplished these four things in the most unexpected way, and it all starts with Christ—fully human, fully divine—becoming man; a king born in a manager, not surrounded by riches and guards.
