When I read about all the different kinds of sin sacrifices, and all the different regulations for each, I can’t help but think of Jesus.
When Aaron lays hands on an animal and then slits its throat, I see Jesus’ blood dripping down His face, drops of blood from His hands and feet dripping down the cross to the ground below. When Aaron sprinkles blood on the altar or touches an ear or thumb with blood, I know Jesus’ blood was applied to me.
I think it’s important for us to read the Old Testament account of the sacrificial system which God provided for dealing with sin. When we read all the regulations, all the intricate details, we can better understand what Jesus’ death did.
Because it is nothing short of amazing to know that Jesus fulfilled every regulation, every detail perfectly…
once and for all!
