Exodus 29:36 (c) This animal is used as a type of CHRIST in all His greatness and wonderful sufficiency. It was the largest of the offerings. The other two offerings were the lamb and the pigeon. These three offerings probably represent different concepts of JESUS as the sacrifice.

  • some know little about Him - just enough to trust Him - the pigeon aspect.
  • others know more about Him and His work, and therefore trust with more knowledge - the lamb aspect.
  • some who have been raised in Christian circles have heard much about CHRIST, and have read their Bibles more often so that they have a very large conception of His sufficiency - the bullock aspect.

In this passage the animal represents the Lord JESUS as a sin offering. No other sacrifice is acceptable for sin except the perfect Lamb of GOD who perfectly met our need at Calvary. (See also2Co5:21). In Leviticus 1:5 the burnt offering also is typical of CHRIST offered for us. (See under "OFFERINGS").

Leviticus 16:27 (c) The animal here is a type of the Lord JESUS in His greatness and completeness. Because of this He is able to make the believer fit for Heaven, and Heaven fit for the believer.

Deuteronomy 17:1 (c) This animal is a picture of CHRIST JESUS in His sacrificial office as burnt offering. He is the only perfect one who could make a perfect sacrifice. All other sacrifices made by men are tainted and defiled with sin. GOD will have only a perfect offering. None can provide this except JESUS CHRIST Himself.

Jeremiah 31:18 (b) The speaker is Ephraim which is a name given to Israel when they were in a backslidden condition and were walking in disobedience to GOD. They complained of the punishment GOD was sending upon them, although they brought punishment upon them, by their own disobedience. They compared themselves to the bullock, which was being beaten for its idleness. It should have been in the yoke serving GOD.

Jeremiah 46:21 (a) Here we find a type of the leaders of Egypt. They had grown rich, proud and strong, but their end was to be punishment from GOD.
