SCRIPTURE

Leviticus 1:2 (NIV)

When someone brings a grain offering to the LORD, his offering is to be of fine flour. He is to pour oil on it, put incense on it

Leviticus 2:1 (NIV)

If someone's offering is a fellowship offering, and he offers an animal from the herd, whether male or female, he is to present before the LORD an animal without defect.

Leviticus 3:1 (NIV)

The first three chapters of Leviticus discuss the burnt, grain, and fellowship offerings. Here is a compilation of great posts discussing the correlation between the levitical offerings and Messiah.

Gospel Thread - NT:

Why does this fellow talk like that? He's blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?

Mark 2:7 (NIV)

The teachers of the law were right about the former: only God can forgive sin; however, they were wrong about the former. Jesus did not blaspheme. He proved He was God by not only telling the man his sins were forgiven, but also healing his paralysis.

Gospel Thread - Psalms/Proverbs:

No direct messianic or gospel reference in today's Psalms/Proverbs reading.
