What Part of Christ's Sacrifice Is 'an Offering Made by Fire'
« on: February 12, 2014, 05:29:50 am »
This question struck me as I read Leviticus 1:

Quote
... 9 But his inwards and his legs shall he wash in water: and the priest shall burn all on the altar, to be a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the Lord.... 13 But he shall wash the inwards and the legs with water: and the priest shall bring it all, and burn it upon the altar: it is a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the Lord.... 17 And he shall cleave it with the wings thereof, but shall not divide it asunder: and the priest shall burn it upon the altar, upon the wood that is upon the fire: it is a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the Lord.

Burnt sacrifices are also described--I'm sure--throughout the rest of the book of Leviticus and onward, but I noticed it here.

& I know that Christ's sacrifice takes the place of all this sacrificing, but I'm just wondering---we got The Blood, but where's The Fire  ???
------------------------------------------------------------------------------That's what a Pharisee might say today. You now have the chance to respond as my mentor Jesus-of-Joseph would, and I pray that you will!

The torment an suffering Christ endured is undoubtedly the metaphorical "fire" of His sacrifice.
