Sacrifices of animals, oil, birds. God's people of the Old Testament did a LOT of that! Did they offer their sacrifices so that they would have forgiveness of their sins? And... IF their sacrifices earned them forgiveness, why in the world was Jesus' sacrifice even needed? We discuss that in this week's midweek devotion. We look at the Apology of the Augsburg Confession, V, paras. 86-87. Also, the hymn "Not All the Blood of Beasts" (LSB #431).
