Lecture 6, Definite Atonement (Part 1):
The Old Testament sacrificial system often causes many people a good deal of consternation. The stipulations and rituals can appear convoluted and confusing at first, second, and third glance. However, like the rest of God’s revealed Word, the sacrificial system prefigured the coming of Christ and the necessity for the atonement of sin and consequent reconciliation of God. Knowing this, the sacrifices take on a whole new light and meaning, for their repetition demonstrates man’s inability to meet the demands of a holy God and the inefficacy of the blood of bulls and goats. In this lesson, Dr. Lawson explains the purpose of the Levitical system, and he demonstrates from the book of John the real, effectual atonement of Christ for His elect.
