The Five Foundations: Sacrifices Lesson Six

This lessons covers the final two of the five sacrifices. We as Christians today are called to be living sacrifices as well as offer up the sacrifice of praise. The burnt offering and the peace offering were offerings that could be offered simultaneously. I believe a picture of our worship and discipleship are seen in these two sacrifices. As usual, the prior lessons on sacrifices should be listened to first for a better understanding of this sixth teaching on the subject.

The Five Foundations: Priesthood Lesson One

PRIESTHOOD and PRIESTS

After bringing the Hebrews out of the bondage of Egypt GOD gives Moses five fundamental doctrines to be taught to the children of Israel. These doctrines are the five foundations that will bring greater clarity to all scripture. The five foundations in the order GOD gave them to Moses are: The Law, The Tabernacle (later the temple) and its services, The Priesthood, The Five Sacrifices, and the Feasts of the LORD. Join us in our first lesson concerning the priesthood and the priests.

It is a foundational concept of Protestantism. While Martin Luther did not use the exact phrase “priesthood of all believers”, he adduces a general priesthood in Christendom in his 1520 To the Christian Nobility of the German Nation in order to dismiss the medieval view that Christians in the present life were to be divided into two classes: “spiritual” and “secular“. He put forward the doctrine that all baptized Christians are “priests” and “spiritual” in the sight of God:

The Bible passage considered to be the basis of this belief is the First Epistle of Peter, 2:9:

But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.

The Five Foundations: Lesson One

A 50 minute teaching on the five oracles given by GOD to man. These five oracles in the order they were given are: The 613 laws, the tabernacle (later the temple) and its functions, the priesthood, the five sacrifices, and the Feasts of the LORD. These topics could seem to be irrelevant to a modern day Christian. The Five Foundations will give us a deeper understanding of the foundations GOD laid before giving us the chief corner stone. These foundations may help illuminate your walk in the footsteps of Messiah. Ephesians 2:20 “And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone”;

With understanding these five prior foundations laid the words and life of our LORD and SAVIOR will be greatly enhanced. Please understand that our teaching perspective is always to magnify CHRIST and clarify his teachings. As these lessons will expound on the covenants, laws, sacrifices, as well as many other Old Testament subjects we are firmly aware that we are only justified by faith. Our goal is to help believers build stronger biblical faith rightly dividing the word of truth.

1 Corinthians 3:11:”For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
The volume of the book is written of HIM. He is the WORD, whether it is read from the Torah, or the New Testament, HIS WORD is the foundation of our faith and hope”.
