The old church formed in the wilderness abounded in offerings of various kinds, both and religious. The general term for offerings was Corban. (See Corban.) But the temple service offerings were all denominated Mincha. Those offerings of Mincha consisted of flour made into cakes, all unleavened, probably to prefigure Christ. (See 1 Corinthians 5:7-8) And besides the burnt offerings, and peace offerings, and sin offerings, under the law, were many, and scrupulously regarded by the Jews, being so strictly enjoined by the Lord. How blessed is it for us to observe under every one of them direct references to the person and offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all, whereby "he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified!" Without him the whole was an unmeaning service; but considered as typical of Jesus, how infinitely important doth that all-sufficient sacrifice of Christ on the cross appear, when we behold it introduced with such vast solemnity and expense through so many ages to the coming of Christ.
