Genesis 8:20 (c) This offering represents the perfect life and the perfect person of the Lord JESUS offered up to GOD in the place of and instead of our imperfect character and unholy life.

Leviticus 1:4 (c) The offering in this Scripture is the first in the five offerings. It represents our entire self being acceptable to GOD in the person of the perfect Lord JESUS CHRIST. He makes us acceptable to GOD by the sacrifice of Himself, and then our service can be acceptable to GOD. CHRIST had to die for our character as well as our conduct.

Ezra 3:2 (c) Here this offering represents the person and work of the Lord JESUS, offered to GOD for the nation of Israel. By this sacrifice the nation would be acceptable to GOD in the new enterprise of rebuilding Jerusalem.

Psalm 51:19 (c) By this means David indicated that after confession and cleansing he would be acceptable to GOD - this is typical of the perfection of the Saviour offered in our stead.

Isaiah 40:16 (c) If all the thousands of animals on the broad slopes of Lebanon were gathered together to make a burnt offering to GOD, this tremendous sacrifice would not be sufficient to put away one sin, nor would it equal the offering of the Lord JESUS CHRIST for our sins. (See also OFFERING).
