Sacrifice, from Scofield Reference Notes (1917)

(Note: Online, interactive quizzes with automatic scoring for these topics from Scofield are available; surf to the index of quizzes or review quiz on sacrifice.)

Sacrifice, Summary

(1) The first intimation of sacrifice is Genesis 3:21 the “coats of skins” having obviously come from slain animals. The first clear instance of sacrifice is Genesis 4:4 explained in Hebrews 11:4. Abel’s righteousness was the result of his sacrifice, not of his character.

(2) Before the giving of the law the head of the family was the family priest. By the law an order of priests was established who alone could offer sacrifices. Those sacrifices were “shadows,” types, expressing variously the guilt and need of the offerer in reference to God, and all pointing to Christ and fulfilled in Him.

(3) As foreshadowed by the types and explained by the N.T., the sacrifice of Christ is
  • penal Galatians 3:13; 2 Corinthians 5:21
  • substitutional Leviticus 1:4; Isaiah 53:5,6; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Peter 2:24
  • voluntary Genesis 22:9; John 10:18
  • redemptive Galatians 3:13; Ephesians 1:7; 1 Corinthians 6:20
  • propitiatory Romans 3:25
  • reconciling 2 Corinthians 5:18,19; Colossians 1:21,22
  • efficacious John 12:32,33; Romans 5:9,10; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Ephesians 2:13; Hebrews 9:11,12,26; 10:10-17; 1 John 1:7; Revelation 1:5
  • and revelatory John 3:16; 1 John 4:9,10.
