The twice-daily lambs and the Lamb of God

Exodus Bible Background

02.02.2018 – Old Testament: Exo 29.38–42

To read the Bible in a year, read Exodus 29–30 on February 2, In the year of our Lord 2018

By Don Ruhl

The Lord wanted two lambs sacrificed daily and these pre-figured the Lamb of God offered in Jesus Christ,

“Now this is what you shall offer on the altar: two lambs of the first year, day by day continually. One lamb you shall offer in the morning, and the other lamb you shall offer at twilight. With the one lamb shall be one-tenth of an ephah of flour mixed with one-fourth of a hin of pressed oil, and one-fourth of a hin of wine as a drink offering. And the other lamb you shall offer at twilight; and you shall offer with it the grain offering and the drink offering, as in the morning, for a sweet aroma, an offering made by fire to the LORD. This shall be a continual burnt offering throughout your generations at the door of the tabernacle of meeting before the LORD, where I will meet you to speak with you” (Exodus 29.38–42).

Is it possible that this lamb was offered at the same hour as when the crucifixion of the Lamb of God began and that the second lamb offered happened at the same hour that Jesus died? If so, we have a powerful picture of the Lord showing daily what would happen when God made His sacrifice for the world.

Questions:

  • Do you think often on the crucifixion of the Lamb of God?
  • What does the death of Jesus mean to you?
