Leviticus 1:3 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
1:3 A burnt sacrifice - Strictly so called, such as was to be all burnt, the skin excepted. For every sacrifice was burnt, more or less. The sacrifices signified that the whole man, in whose stead the sacrifice was offered, was to be entirely offered or devoted to God's service; and that the whole man did deserve to be utterly consumed, if God should deal severely with him; and directed us to serve the Lord with all singleness of heart, and to be ready to offer to God even such sacrifices or services wherein we ourselves should have no part or benefit. A male - As being more perfect than the female, Mal 1:14, and more truly representing Christ. Without blemish - To signify, That God should he served with the best of every kind. That man, represented by these sacrifices, should aim at all perfection of heart and life, and that Christians should one day attain to it, Eph 5:27. The spotless and compleat holiness of Christ. Of his own will - According to this translation, the place speaks only of free - will offerings, or such as were not prescribed by God to be offered in course, but were offered by the voluntary devotion of any person, either by way of supplication for any mercy, or by way of thanksgiving for any blessing received. But it may seem improper to restrain the rules here given to free - will offerings, which were to be observed in other offerings also. At the door - In the court near the door, where the altar stood, Lev 1:5. For here it was to be sacrificed, and here the people might behold the oblation of it. And this farther signified, that men could have no entrance, neither into the earthly tabernacle, the church, nor into the heavenly tabernacle of glory, but by Christ, who is the door, John 10:7,9, by whom alone we have access to God.
The animal you select must be a one-year-old male, either a sheep or a goat, with no defects.
"If the animal you present as a burnt offering is from the flock, it may be either a sheep or a goat, but it must be a male with no defects.
"If you present an animal from the herd as a peace offering to the LORD, it may be a male or a female, but it must have no defects.
The elders of the community must then lay their hands on the bull's head and slaughter it before the LORD.
Then the LORD said to Moses,
"Give them this command as well. If any native Israelite or foreigner living among you offers a burnt offering or a sacrifice
but does not bring it to the entrance of the Tabernacle to offer it to the LORD, that person will be cut off from the community.
