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.
