If his offering be a burnt sacrifice of the herd, let him offer a male without blemish: he shall offer it of his own voluntary will. And he shall put his hand upon the head of the burnt offering; and it shall be accepted for him to make atonement for him. Leviticus 1:3,4
God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering. — Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. — We are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. — A ransom for many.
No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. —I will love them freely. — The Son of God … loved me and gave himself for me.
He hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. —He hath made us accepted in the beloved.
