"As in the course of this
book the different kinds of sacrifices commanded to be offered are repeatedly
occurring, I think it best, once for all, to give a general account of
them and a definition of the original terms, as well as of all others relative
to this subject which are used in the Old Testament and the reference in
which they all stood to the great sacrifice offered by Christ.
Asham). Used when punishment due or
liable to be punished. In this sacrifice the guilt was considered as being
transferred to the animal offered up to God and the offerer redeemed from
the penalty of his sin:.Leviticus
7:37. Christ is said to have made his soul an offering for sin:.Isaiah
Ishsheh). Probably from the Hebrew
word 'ashash', meaning to be grieved, angered, inflamed, where either points
out the distressing nature of sin or its property of incensing
Divine justice against the offender, who, in consequence, deserving burning
for his offense, made use of this sacrifice to be freed from the punishment
due to his transgression:.Exodus
29:18 and in many places of this book.
or Repeated Offerings.(Hebrew,
Habhabim). Means to supply. The word
occurs only in.Hosea
probably means no more than the continual repetition of the accustomed
offerings or continuation of each part of the sacred service.
Zebach). A creature slain in sacrifice.
Zebach is a common name for sacrifices.in
Chag). Especially such as had a periodical
return. Means to celebrate a festival, to dance round and round in circles:.Exodus
5:1. The circular dance was probably intended to point out the
revolution of the heavenly bodies and the exact return of the different
Chattaah). Signifies sin in general
and is a very apt term to express its nature by. A sinner is continually
aiming at and seeking happiness, but as he does not seek it in God, hence
the Scripture represents him as missing his aim or missing the mark. The
sin-offering was at once an acknowledgment of guilt, in having forsaken
the fountain of living waters for hewing out cisterns that could hold none
and also of the firm purpose of the offerer to return to God, the true
and pure fountain of blessedness. This word often occurs.
Expiation or Atonement.(Hebrew,
Copher). Means to cover, to smear over
or obliterate or annul a contract. Used often to signify the atonement
or expiation made for the pardon or canceling of iniquity.
An Appointed annual festival.(Hebrew,
Moed). Such feasts as were instituted
in commemoration of some great event or deliverance, such as the deliverance
Milluim). These were offerings made
in consecrations of which the priests partook.
Minchah). Means to rest, to settle
after toil. It generally consisted of things without life, such as green
ears of corn, full ears of corn, flour, oil and frankincense:.Leviticus
2:1. May be considered as having its name from that rest from labor
and toil which a man had when the fruits of the autumn were brought in
or when, in consequence of obtaining any rest, ease a significant offering
or sacrifice was made to God. For example, the jealousy-offering.(Numbers
a simple minchah, consisting of barley-meal only.
Masseeth). Things carried to the temple
to be presented to God. The sufferings and death of Emmanuel the Christ
were the true 'masseeth' or vicarious
bearing of the sins of humanity:.John
FREE-WILL or voluntary offering.(Hebrew,
Nedabah). An offering not commanded,
but given as a particular proof of extraordinary gratitude to God for especial
mercies or on account of some vow or engagement voluntarily taken:.Leviticus
Libation or Drink offering.(Hebrew,
Nedabah). Water or wine poured out
at the conclusion or confirmation of a treaty or covenant. To this kind
of offering there is frequent allusion and reference in the New Testament,
as it typified the blood of Christ poured out for the sin of the world.
The whole Gospel.economy
is represented as a covenant or treaty between God and man, Emmanuel Christ
being not only the mediator, but the covenant sacrifice, whose blood was
poured out for the ratification
and confirmation of this covenant or agreement between God and man.
Olah). Means 'to ascend', because this
offering, as being wholly consumed, ascended as it were to God in smoke
and vapor. It was a very expressive type of the sacrifice of Christ, as
nothing less than his complete and full sacrifice could make atonement
for the sin of the world. In most other offerings the priest and often
the offerer had a share, but in the whole burnt offering all was given
Incense or Perfume offering.(Hebrew,
and other aromatics used as a perfume in different parts of the Divine
service. To this Paul compares the agreeableness of the sacrifice of Christ
5:2. From Revelation 5:8
we learn that it was intended also to represent the prayers of the saints,
which, offered up on the altar, Christ Emmanuel, that sanctifies every
gift, are highly pleasing in the sight of God."
Korban). Korban was a general name
for any kind of offering, because through these a man had access to his
Shelamim). Means to complete, make
whole. By these offerings that which was lacking was considered as being
now made up and that which was broken, viz.,
the covenant of God, by man's transgression of, was supposed to be made
whole; so that after such an offering, the sincere and conscientious mind
had a right to consider that the breach was made up between God and that
man might lay confident hold on this covenant of peace. To this Paul the
Todah). Means to confess; offerings
made to God with public confession of his power, goodness, mercy, etc."
Tenuphah). Means to stretch out; an
offering of the first-fruits stretched out before God, in acknowledgment
of his providential goodness:.Exodus
Terumah). Means to lift up, because
the offering was lifted up towards heaven, as the wave offering, in token
of the kindness of God in granting rain and fruitful seasons, and filling
the heart with food and gladness. As the wave offering was moved from right
to left, so the heave offering was moved up and down and in both cases
this was done several times. These offerings had a blessed tendency to
keep alive in the breasts of the people a due sense of their dependence
on the Divine providence and bounty and of their obligation to God for
his continual and liberal supply of all their wants.
"In the above collection
are comprised, as far as I can recollect, these are an explanation of all
the terms used in the Hebrew Scriptures which signify sacrifice, oblation,
atonement, offering, as well as the reference they bear to the great and
only sufficient atonement, sacrifice, oblation and satisfaction made by
Christ Emmanuel for the sins of humanity. Larger accounts must be sought
in authors who treat professedly on these subjects."
