Before Calvary

One of the things that many modern people find strange and shocking about the Bible, especially the Old Testament, is the heavy emphasis that sacrifice plays throughout the story. In many ways there is no other modern religion like it. At the very center of biblical faith, of the biblical vision of ultimate spiritual reality, is the bloody death of a helpless victim. The question is, “Why?” Over the next three weeks we are going to look at three stories - three pictures - in the Old Testament where sacrifice teaches us something about the character, purposes, and plan of God.
