Interesting fact: Many Bible students have noted a close association between the New Testament book of Hebrews and the Old Testament book of Leviticus. This association is heightened when considering the present subject of sacrifice. Each of these books, Hebrews in the New Testament and Leviticus in the Old Testament, references the word sacrifice and its variations more than any of their counterparts within their particular testaments.
Bible study tip: When studying the Old Testament sacrifices, be sure not to neglect the literal interpretation of scripture. While there is no doubt many, if not all, of the sacrifices which foreshadowed Christ, the study should first give consideration to the actual and literal details of each sacrifice. Once these truths are firmly settled, then, and only then, should the Bible student seek to comprehend how the sacrifices typified the Lord Jesus Christ.
