Today you should read: Leviticus 7
The last two chapters focused on WHEN the guilt offering was to be sacrificed. This chapter focuses on HOW it was to be offered. The first 10 verses describe what to do with the different elements involved in the sacrifice, similar to previous offerings, and it subsidizes different elements that can be used for other offerings (burnt and grain). The remainder of the chapter then deals with the peace offering and the different motivations behind it. Verses 12-15 shows how there is thanksgiving involved with the sacrifice. Verse 16 shows how a vow or covenant takes place and the remainder of the chapter deals with consecration where they are cut off from other people for the purposes of the offering.
It’s easy to look at all of these details and see how this offering and sacrifice was a true foreshadowing of the sacrifice of Jesus, even outside of the part with atonement/substitutionary sacrifice. From the thanksgiving we feel when receiving it to the covenant that takes place between you and God, how we’re then consecrated for His purpose and holiness.
