Christ as seen in the Offerings is a classic work by RF Kingcote which takes up in a simple way some of the offerings mentioned in Leviticus – a book which is commonly passed over as if it were not relevant to us today, but which is full of rich typical teaching. The author expounds very clearly the meaning of the offerings which are brought before us, which are types or pictures given by the Holy Spirit of the Lord Jesus Christ's Person and work and of what results to us through that work which has much relevance to us today.
As the author explains; “The burnt offering, the meat offering, the peace offering and the sin offering are brought before us by the Holy Spirit in order to make clear to our minds four different aspects of the Person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ, just as in the New Testament the Holy Spirit has given us, in the four Gospels, four different views of the Lord's Person, and also the blessings which have become ours through what He has done.”
Illustrating various truths of the gospel, the author helps us to understand the sweet savor offerings and the sin offerings and encourages us to appreciate more deeply the magnitude, the meaning & the gloriousness of the Lord Jesus Christ’s sinless life and finished work.
