Sacrifice Prefigures

Dr. John Oakes gave a sermon on 3/15/2014 in San Diego.  The topic was the Levitical sacrificial system as a prefigure of worship in the New Testament.  The “sweet smelling” offerings are discussed as prefigures both of the offerings given by Jesus and by Christians.  Specifically discussed are the burnt offering, the grain offering, the drink offering and the fellowship offering.  There is also a brief introduction to the sin and guilt sacrifices as prefigures of the sacrificial work of Jesus.   sacrificeprefigures notes     sacrificeprefigures PPT    sacrificeprefigure audio
