The Law of Offerings

offerings

As I have previously indicated, I’m currently in the process of reading through the entire Bible in a hard copy edition of the Amplified Study Bible. I just finished going through Numbers yesterday. I’ve also completed the Gospels of Matthew and Mark in the New Testament.

I felt like I was losing someone I had come to know when God told Moses that he would be joining his ancestors. I’m color coding each page (three colors – red (extremely important) – orange (very important) – yellow (important)) plus my stars of special highlights. This is what a couple of typical pages looks like:

Going through the scriptures in this manner is painstakingly slow but … it is so worth it. Note the cross references are at the bottom of each page in the AMP Study Bible, plus a significant amount of Biblical notes on each page. I highly recommend it!

One of the things I have ongoing is a list of studies that I want to follow up on, one of which is the Law of Offerings that can be found in Leviticus and Numbers. I’ve read through the Old and New Testaments a number of times but never in this fashion. It’s hard to put into words the difference that it makes when you carefully consider each word. It’s almost like savoring them. We’ve all read about the different offerings and the Bible provides an abundance of detail. There are so many spiritual truths woven into the offerings and the fore-pictures given are really astounding.

Anyone who thinks that Moses’s responsibilities were easy or his dedication to our God was anything less than stellar are mistaken. Perfect … no, but Moses was quite the man. I keep reminding myself that all the hard work that Moses did was rewarded as he appeared with Jesus and Elijah, representing the Law and the Prophets, in the Transfiguration in Luke 9:28-36 NIV

I managed to find an excellent resource on the Law of the Offerings that were put together by a Baptist gentleman called Steven J Evans who currently resides in Lexington, KY.

The direct links to the PDF tables he created are here:

Leviticus 1 – Law of the Burnt Offering

Leviticus 2 – Law of the Meat Offering

Leviticus 3 – Law of the Peace Offering

Leviticus 4 – Law of the Sin Offering

Leviticus 5 – Law of the Trespass Offering

Worthy is the Lamb! Blessings!
