Verses:

Heb. 10:9-10 “[Christ] said, ‘Behold, I have come to do Your will.’… By which will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.”

 

Excerpts:

Leviticus chapters eleven through fifteen show us what we are, where we are, what our condition is, and what issues out from us. We were born unclean and are surrounded by people who are unclean. Thus there is a problem not only with our birth but also with our contact with others. Through this contact it is very easy for us to be contaminated. Furthermore, in our condition we are altogether leprous; we are a totality of leprosy. In addition, whatever comes out of us as a discharge is unclean, contagious, and contaminating. We are a totality of uncleanness, a totality of leprosy. We need a sin offering to solve the root problem of sin. Furthermore, as sinners we are not for God but altogether for ourselves. Therefore, we also need a burnt offering.

 

No matter what kind of person we may be, we are sinners, and we are not for God. Thus we need a sin offering and a burnt offering. We need a sin offering to solve the root problem of our sin. We need a burnt offering so that we can be for God.

 

Christ is both the sin offering and the burnt offering. According to Hebrews 10, Christ came to do two things: to take away our sins and to do the will of God. Christ came to take away our sin, to solve our root problem of sin. He also came to do the will of God, for He is fully and absolutely for God. Christ, therefore, is the sin offering and the burnt offering. (Life-study of Leviticus, Message 46)
