G. Campbell Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible

Leviticus 7



Verses 1-38

The law of the trespass offering is practically identical with that of the sin offering It is impossible to ponder these things without the mind turning to the great and infinite Sacrifice in which all the suggestions of the Mosaic economy were finally fulfilled.

The peace offering was pre-eminently that of communion. In the law of this offering three kinds are recognized: an offering of thanksgiving, an offering in connection with vows, and one which is purely a free-will offering to God. In all these communion is recognized. A stringent requirement in connection with this offering is that no part of them should be allowed to see corruption.

In the final section concerning the laws of dedication, certain principles of observation applicable throughout are repeated and emphasized. First, the fat and the blood were not to be eaten. Further, communion could not be maintained by proxy. Each man for himself must bring in "his own hands" the Lord's portion. While God comes to men directly and individually, He expects to receive from them in like manner. Thus communion is more than general and sentimental. It is personal and immediate.
