The prophecy of the Lord Jesus for our consideration and edification, written centuries prior to His earthly existence is
|His sacrifice a sweet smelling savor unto God|
|Old Testament Prophecy|
|“Speak to the people of Israel and say to them, When any one of you brings an offering to the LORD, you shall bring your offering of livestock from the herd or from the flock.|
“If his offering is a burnt offering from the herd, he shall offer a male without blemish. He shall bring it to the entrance of the tent of meeting, that he may be accepted before the LORD.
He shall lay his hand on the head of the burnt offering, and it shall be accepted for him to make atonement for him.
Then he shall kill the bull before the LORD, and Aaron’s sons the priests shall bring the blood and throw the blood against the sides of the altar that is at the entrance of the tent of meeting.
Then he shall flay the burnt offering and cut it into pieces,
and the sons of Aaron the priest shall put fire on the altar and arrange wood on the fire.
And Aaron’s sons the priests shall arrange the pieces, the head, and the fat, on the wood that is on the fire on the altar;
but its entrails and its legs he shall wash with water. And the priest shall burn all of it on the altar, as a burnt offering, a food offering with a pleasing aroma to the LORD.
|New Testament Fullfillment|
|And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.|
