Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible

Leviticus 1

Verses 1-17

The Book of Leviticus is the Book of Laws. It first deals with laws of dedication concerning the offerings, all of which have to do with the divine provision for the people's approach to Jehovah in worship. Five offerings are named. The first, dealt with in this chapter, was the burnt offering, suggesting the need of personal dedication to God. Those who are admitted to the place of worship are such as have utterly failed to render their life to God thus perfectly. Therefore the offering they bring must be slain and burned. In this arrangement was set forth the truth of substitution as being the only way in which a sinning man can draw near to worship. The spiritual sense of the reader will see throughout the whole of these studies how the ideas embodied in the ancient economy found their fulfillment in Christ. It is not the purpose of these notes to dwell on this fact, but rather to attempt to discover the simple significance of the laws to the men to whom they were given, as was the case in our consideration of Exodus
