1. The First Altars

 

Genesis 4:3-4 When it was time for the harvest, Cain presented some of his crops as a gift to the Lord. 4 Abel also brought a gift—the best of the firstborn lambs from his flock. The Lord accepted Abel and his gift,

 

2. The Lamb of the Jewish System

 

Leviticus 22:19-20 you will be accepted only if your offering is a male animal with no defects. It may be a bull, a ram, or a male goat. 20 Do not present an animal with defects, because the Lord will not accept it on your behalf.

 

Hebrews 9:22 In fact, according to the law of Moses, nearly everything was purified with blood. For without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness.

 

3. Appointment of the Priesthood

 

Leviticus 9:7 Then Moses said to Aaron, “Come to the altar and sacrifice your sin offering and your burnt offering to purify yourself and the people. Then present the offerings of the people to purify them, making them right with the Lord, just as he has commanded.”

 

Hebrews 9:7 But only the high priest ever entered the Most Holy Place, and only once a year. And he always offered blood for his own sins and for the sins the people had committed in ignorance.

 

4. Jewish System Typical & Imperfect

 

Hebrews 10:1-2 The old system under the law of Moses was only a shadow, a dim preview of the good things to come, not the good things themselves. The sacrifices under that system were repeated again and again, year after year, but they were never able to provide perfect cleansing for those who came to worship. 2 If they could have provided perfect cleansing, the sacrifices would have stopped, for the worshipers would have been purified once for all time, and their feelings of guilt would have disappeared.

 

5. Christ Our Proto-type

 

1 Peter 1:20 God chose him as your ransom long before the world began, but he has now revealed him to you in these last days.

 

Revelation 13:8 And all the people who belong to this world worshiped the beast. They are the ones whose names were not written in the Book of Life before the world was made—the Book that belongs to the Lamb who was slaughtered.

 

6. The Lamb of God

 

John 1:29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

 

Revelation 5:12 And they sang in a mighty chorus: “Worthy is the Lamb who was slaughtered—  to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing.”

 

7. Christ Our High Priest

 

Hebrews 7:28 The law appointed high priests who were limited by human weakness. But after the law was given, God appointed his Son with an oath, and his Son has been made the perfect High Priest forever.

 

Hebrews 8:1 Here is the main point: We have a High Priest who sat down in the place of honor beside the throne of the majestic God in heaven.

 

 Hebrews 9:24 For Christ did not enter into a holy place made with human hands, which was only a copy of the true one in heaven. He entered into heaven itself to appear now before God on our behalf.

 

8. Christ the Priest Offers Christ the Lamb

 

Hebrews 8:3 And since every high priest is required to offer gifts and sacrifices, our High Priest must make an offering, too.

 

Hebrews 10:12 But our High Priest offered himself to God as a single sacrifice for sins, good for all time. Then he sat down in the place of honor at God’s right hand.

 

9. Christ Offered Once for All

 

Hebrews 9:25-26 And he did not enter heaven to offer himself again and again, like the high priest here on earth who enters the Most Holy Place year after year with the blood of an animal. 26 If that had been necessary, Christ would have had to die again and again, ever since the world began. But now, once for all time, he has appeared at the end of the age to remove sin by his own death as a sacrifice.

 

Hebrews 9:28 so also Christ died once for all time as a sacrifice to take away the sins of many people. He will come again, not to deal with our sins, but to bring salvation to all who are eagerly waiting for him.

 

Hebrews 10:14 For by that one offering he forever made perfect those who are being made holy.

 

10. The Believer's Sacrifice

 

Romans 12:1 And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.

 

 2 Timothy 4:6 As for me, my life has already been poured out as an offering to God. The time of my death is near.
