Jeremiah vs Leviticus

Rosa Rubicondior has another good post over at her blog –

Jeremiah 7:

22. For I spake not unto your fathers, nor commanded them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices:

versus

Leviticus 1:

1. And the LORD called unto Moses, and spake unto him out of the tabernacle of the congregation, saying,

2. Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man of you bring an offering unto the LORD, ye shall bring your offering of the cattle, even of the herd, and of the flock.

3. If his offering be a burnt sacrifice of the herd, let him offer a male without blemish: he shall offer it of his own voluntary will at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the LORD.

4. And he shall put his hand upon the head of the burnt offering; and it shall be accepted for him to make atonement for him.

5. And he shall kill the bullock before the LORD: and the priests, Aaron’s sons, shall bring the blood, and sprinkle the blood round about upon the altar that is by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

6. And he shall flay the burnt offering, and cut it into his pieces.

7. And the sons of Aaron the priest shall put fire upon the altar, and lay the wood in order upon the fire:

8. And the priests, Aaron’s sons, shall lay the parts, the head, and the fat, in order upon the wood that is on the fire which is upon the altar:

9. But his inwards and his legs shall he wash in water: and the priest shall burn all on the altar, to be a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD.

It’s a good point. So, Christians, which is right?

  1. Exodus 15:26 "26 And He said, “If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the LORD your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, the LORD, am your healer.” Yea, that's exactly what God did. What's your point Agod?

  2. Hezekiah:     Both can't be right. They contradict one another. You can believe the one; you can believe the other; or you can think they are both wrong. (I think they are both wrong.) But saying both are correct is nonsense.

  3. PvBlis,See the verse I provided?When they came out of egypyt that is what God told them. Leviticus has nothing to with it. It came later.

  4. I'd be more inclined to ask Jews as opposed to Christians… obviously 🙂
