Leviticus – the LORD Speaks to Us Today
Today we come to the end of chapter seven as we finish up the section about the consumption of the holy food. One short divine speech makes it clear that we are not to eat any fat or blood from the Peace Offering. Another divine speech specifies which parts of the meat are given to the priests. Why must the fat be burned up before the priests get their portion? How does this divine speech contrast with the way Eli’s wicked sons demanded their portion of the raw meat? How do the sacred meals of the Sin Offering and the Reparation Offering and the Peace Offering find their fulfillment in the Lord’s Supper today? Your comments and questions are encouraged. All are welcome.
