Old Testament


Leviticus: 40 chapters, re Levi's tribe,
Mount Sinai's religious ritual laws describe.
For burnt, meal, sin, peace, trespass and wave offerings
Blemishless oxen, sheep, goats, doves, slain covered sins.
These, and the leper-cleansing law - where one bird's killed,
Its blood on one freed, speak of Christ's blood for us spilled.
The annual Atonement day, for sin to atone -
With goats killed, scapegoats cursed, foreshadows Him alone.
Feasts Passo'er, Unleavened bread, Firstfruits, Pentecost
Foretell the coming of Christ and the Holy Ghost.
Trumpets, Atonement, Tabernacles, Jubilee
With slaves freed, land redeemed - speak of Christ's victory.
