By Don Ruhl

After the Lord explained the procedures for the various offerings that Israel could offer, He had Moses write,

This is the law of the burnt offering, the grain offering, the sin offering, the trespass offering, the consecrations, and the sacrifice of the peace offering, which the Lord commanded Moses on Mount Sinai, on the day when He commanded the children of Israel to offer their offerings to the Lord in the Wilderness of Sinai (Leviticus 7.37–38).

Israel kept making those offerings for the next 1,500 years until the arrival of Jesus, who in His own person replaced all those sacrifices, truly, they all typified Him in one way or another.
