Leviticus 2

Verse 1

fine flour

The meal-offering. The fine flour speaks of the evenness and balance of the character of Christ; of that perfection in which no quality was in excess, none lacking; the fire, of His testing by suffering, even unto death; frankincense; the fragrance of His life Godward (see) Exodus 30:34 absence of leaven, His character as "the Truth" (see) Exodus 12:8 absence of honey;--His was not that mere natural sweetness which may exist quite apart from grace; oil mingled, Christ as born of the Spirit Matthew 1:18-23 oil upon, Christ as baptized with the Spirit ; John 1:32; John 6:27 the oven, the unseen sufferings of Christ--His inner agonies ; Hebrews 2:18; Matthew 27:45; Matthew 27:46 the pan, His more evident sufferings (e.g.) Matthew 27:27-31 salt, the pungency of the truth of God--that which arrests the action of leaven.
