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
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
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
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
4. Jewish System Typical
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
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
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
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.
