A: No, they are pictures for us. They’re God’s portrait of the Lord Jesus Christ. All those offerings — not just the sin and trespass offerings, but there was the burnt offering, the peace offering, and the meal offering — they all depicted the person and the work of the Lord Jesus Christ. They’re a picture book for you and I to look at and learn something about what Christ actually did for us when He died upon the cross and what God requires of us as sinners: We’re to come and accept Christ as Savior. This is a picture book. All of these things happen unto them as examples for us (see 1 Corinthians 10:6).Dr. McGee’s booklet, “The Tabernacle: God’s Portrait of Christ,” expounds on this topic.
