Leviticus 3

 

 

Verses 1-17

PEACE-OFFERINGS FROM THE HERD AND THE FLOCKS

Leviticus 3:1-17

The Lord Jesus has been set forth in Leviticus 1:1-17 as the burned-offering in relation to God; and in Leviticus 2:1-16, as the meal-offering in relation to man. We are now to regard Him as the peace-offering, to rectify the disturbed relations between God and man. It supplied food for God in the fat devoured by the sacred fire upon the altar, it fed the priests in those parts specially reserved for them, Leviticus 7:33-34; but the worshiper also might participate, Leviticus 7:15. Thus it was a feast that brought into close relations God, priest and people, and it furnished a beautiful typical picture of the truth taught in 1 John 1:3, “Our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.”

Before sitting at the sacrificial feast the offerer laid his hand on the victim’s head, as though to transfer his sins; and we are reminded that we cannot feast on Christ as our Passover unless we have been first pardoned and justified through His death.
