Finished rereading a book I first read about fifteen years ago, The Law of the Offerings by Andrew Jukes. It is very enlightening and eminently Scriptural. I thought a discussion on the offerings and their spiritual significance would be interesting. The five primary tabernacle offerings: The Sweet Savour Offerings: Burned on the Altar of Burnt Offering. Not offered for sin. This is man in righteousness offering an acceptable sacrifice to God. Burnt Offering. The offering of a life. Man's duty to God. Corresponds to 1st Table of the Decalogue. Meat (Meal) Offering. the offering of fruits. Man's duty to man. Corresponds to the Second Table. Peace Offering. Consequences of the Burnt and Meat offerings. Man and God are both satisfied. The Non-Sweet Savour Offerings: Burned outside the camp, not on the altar. Offered for sin. This is man as a sinner being judged for his sin. Sin Offering. The sinner is the primary focus, not the particular trespass. This is an offering for sin, the sin nature. Trespass Offering. The particular violation is the focus, not the sinner. Damages are assessed and restitution is made. Christ, naturally, is the offerer, the offering and the priest.
