The subject with which we are here concerned is the Old Testament peace-offering. To the New Testament Christian, Who no longer relies for his salvation upon ritual sacrifices, but rather trusts in the atoning work of Christ, that subject may seem of little value.

As the apostle says, “These things were written for our learning.”
