CHRIST'S Sacrificial Death Was The Sweet Aroma To JEHOVAH




Leviticus 1:1-17 NIV






The Burnt Offering







1The LORD Called To Moses and Spoke To him from the tent of meeting. HE Said, 


2“Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘When anyone among you brings an offering To The LORD, bring as your offering an animal from either the herd or the flock.


3“ ‘If the offering is a burnt offering from the herd, you are to offer a male without defect. You must present it at the entrance to the tent of meeting so that it will be acceptable To The LORD. 4 You are to lay your hand on the head of the burnt offering, and it will be accepted on your behalf to make atonement for you. 


5You are to slaughter the young bull Before The LORD, and then Aaron’s sons the priests shall bring the blood and splash it against the sides of the altar at the entrance to the tent of meeting.  






6You are to skin the burnt offering and cut it into pieces. 7The sons of Aaron the priest are to put fire on the altar and arrange wood on the fire. 8Then Aaron’s sons the priests shall arrange the pieces, including the head and the fat, on the wood that is burning on the altar. 9You are to wash the internal organs and the legs with water, and the priest is to burn all of it on the altar.



 It is a burnt offering, a food offering, an aroma 

pleasing To The LORD.




10“ ‘If the offering is a burnt offering from the flock, from either the sheep or the goats, you are to offer a male without defect. 11You are to slaughter it at the north side of the altar before The Lord, and Aaron’s sons the priests shall splash its blood against the sides of the altar. 12You are to cut it into pieces, and the priest shall arrange them, including the head and the fat, on the wood that is burning on the altar. 13You are to wash the internal organs and the legs with water, and the priest is to bring all of them and burn them on the altar. 



 It is a burnt offering, a food offering, an aroma 

pleasing To The LORD.







14“ ‘If the offering To The LORD is a burnt offering of birds, you are to offer a dove or a young pigeon. 15The priest shall bring it to the altar, wring off the head and burn it on the altar; its blood shall be drained out on the side of the altar. 16He is to remove the crop and the feathersa and throw them down east of the altar where the ashes are. 17He shall tear it open by the wings, not dividing it completely, and then the priest shall burn it on the wood that is burning on the altar.


 It is a burnt offering, a food offering, an aroma 

pleasing To The LORD.










The Book of Leviticus 











(From Greek Λευιτικός, Leuitikos, meaning “relating to the Levites”; Hebrew: ויקרא‎, Vayikra/Wayikra, “And HE Called”) is the third book of the Hebrew Bible, and the third of five books of the Torah(or Pentateuch).

The English name is from the Latin Leviticus, taken in turn from Greek and a reference to the Levites, the tribe from whom the priests were drawn. In addition to instructions for those priests, it also addresses the role and duties of the people.


Leviticus rests in two crucial beliefs:

The first, that the world was created “very good” and retains the capacity to achieve that state although it is vulnerable to sin and defilement;

The second, that the faithful enactment of ritual makes GOD's Presence available, while ignoring or breaching it compromises the harmony between GOD and the world.




Burnt offering (Hebrew olahi.e., “ascending”)



A burnt offering is one that is consumed by fire, and regarded as ascending To GOD while being consumed.


Part of every offering was burnt in the sacred fire, but this was wholly burnt, a “whole burnt offering.” It was the most frequent form of sacrifice, and apparently the only one mentioned in the book of Genesis. Such were the sacrifices offered by Abel (Genesis 4:3-4, here called minhah; i.e., “a gift”), Noah (Genesis 8:20), Abraham (Genesis 22:27-813), and by the Hebrews in Egypt (Exodus 10:25).


The Law of Moses afterwards prescribed the occasions and the manner in which burn sacrifices were to be offered. There were “the continual burnt offering” (Exodus. 29:38-42Leviticus 6:9-13), “the burnt offering of every Sabbath,” which was double the daily one (Numbers 28:9-10), “the burnt offering of every month” (Numbers 28:11-15), the offerings at the Passover (Numbers 19-23), at Pentecost (Leviticus 23:16), the feast of Trumpets( Numbers 23:23-25), and on the day of Atonement (Leviticus 16).


On other occasions special sacrifices were offered, as at the consecration of Aaron (Exodus 29) and the dedication of the Temple (1 Kings 8:562-64).


Free-will burnt offerings were also permitted (Leviticus 1:13), and were offered at the accession of Solomon to the throne (1 Chronicles 29:21), and at the reformation brought about by Hezekiah (2 Chronicles 29:31-35).


These offerings signified the complete dedication of the offerers Unto GOD. This is referred to in Romans 12:1.



 "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the Mercies of GOD, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable Unto GOD, which is your reasonable service."
