Two Personal Fowls
December 20, 2012
According to the Old Testament Law, after a woman has given birth she is supposed to bring an offering to sacrifice at the temple and it was to be either a young lamb or fowls. After Mary gave birth to Jesus, she followed this Law by bringing fowls to the temple to be sacrificed. Little did she know that she had also brought a lamb, the Lamb of God that would take away the sins of the world. It was not until 33 years later that she stood at the foot of His cross as He beheld His mother and instructed His disciple to look after her. Mary was not a perfect woman, hence the necessity for sacrifice after Christ’s birth, but it was through her that the greatest sacrifice of all was made for mankind.
