Faith Tidbit #23
Reading the Old Testament, we see that there are three different kinds of commandments or laws that God gave to ancient Israel. First, there was ritual or sacrificial law. This regulated what and when pious Jews were to sacrifice for their sins. Such sacrifices are no longer needed. Jesus is, as John the Baptist proclaimed Him to be, "the Lamb of God Who takes away the sin of the world." And the New Testament book of Hebrews notes that Jesus came into our world to be the once-for all sacrifice for our sins.
