The Maschiach in Torah
Avraham said," God will provide himself the lamb for the burnt offering."
( B'resheet 22:7-8)
Later God said, "No one shall appear before me without an offering"
Then in the primary book of the Law or Teachings, (the Torah) the first chapter is devoted to describing the acceptable offering! (Offerings were made for the atonement of the person making the offering. Vayikra (Leviticus) chapter one.
"The offering shall be from the herds and the flocks it shall be male without blemish"
(Self explanatory I think)
see 1 Peter 1:19 "It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God."
"and he (the priest), shall put his hand on the 'head' of the offering.
Yeshua is the 'head' of the body." Colossians 1:18
"Aaron's sons shall shall bring the blood and sprinkle the blood around the Alter."
It was the Cohen, (Priests), of Yeshua's day that brought him to the cross where his blood was sprinkled.
"and he, shall 'flay' the burnt offering and cut it into it's peices"
Yeshua was given 40 lashes 'flaying' him to the bone and literally cutting his body to shreds.
"But his inwards and his legs shall be washed with water"
When the Centurion pierced his side water and blood flowed from his side and down onto his legs. His inwards and legs were washed with water.
You see the acceptable offering, that atones for us is YESHUA ben David the Maschiac. "No one will come before me without an acceptable offering."
God has provided our offering for us . . .
Do you 'see' it . . . .
