Leviticus 1:1 – 6:7



Targums link:


Before we begin – Vayikra means: “and he called”



– Freewill Sacrifices and offerings will resume in New Jerusalem (Ezekiel 40-47)

– We have evidence in the Torah of certain sacrifices before the official giving of the Torah at mt. sinai – Adam, Abel, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Moses

– 1st Adam and Eve


  • Olah (Whole burnt offering) – for total consecration of the offerer’s life to YHWH
  • Mincha (Grain offering) – token of the offerer’s life to his fellow man & detachment from cares of posessions
  • Shelamim (Peace offering) – symbolizes fellowship between YHWH and His people
  • Chatat (Sin offering) – brought to atone for personal or congregational sin
  • Asham (Guilt offering) – brought for sins not considered as serious as the sin offering, swearing falsely, etc.



All the sacrifices point to Yahusha and what he did for us
Olah is voluntary

1:2 – Clean animals: bulls, goats, rams, lambs, doves, etc..


1:4 – The animal is in our place – Jasher 23:69-75

  • If you haven’t slaughtered an animal before… it’s intense


1:10 – Yahusha is the unblemished one


Olah is a whole burnt offering – We have to fully give ourselves to him
