The Sin Offering


Read Leviticus 4:1-35 / Leviticus 6:24-30.

There is a degree of overlap between the Sin Offering and the Trespass Offering. The Sin Offering is indicated for our general sinful condition before God, Leviticus 5:13.

The Sin Offering is indicated for unintentional sins, Leviticus 4:1-2 / Leviticus 4:27, especially by leaders or by the people as a whole, Leviticus 4:3 / Leviticus 4:13 / Leviticus 4:22.

The Sin Offering is indicated for individuals among God’s people, Leviticus 4:27. The good news of the Sin Offering is that Christ has fulfilled the sin offering, once and for all, ‘Christ was manifested to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself’. Hebrews 9:26. See also 2 Corinthians 5:21 / Romans 8:3.

Based on faith in what Christ has done for us by His death on the cross, we can be released from slavery to our sinful nature and its tendencies. Jesus said, ‘Everyone who commits sin is a slave of sin… If the Son shall set you free, you shall be free indeed’. John 8:34 / John 8:36.



"Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds."
