We continue our #VosGroup series by opening pages 155–157 of Vos’ book Biblical Theology: Old and New Testaments to consider the sacrificial system of the law. Vos describes two main ends of sacrifices—expiation and consecration—and how they relate to one another. God desires to establish a covenant communion bond with a holy people. This relationship is served fundamentally by consecration even before the fall into sin. Yet once sin enters the world, the Lord must deal with it. Christ does so by offering a perfect sacrifice in his own blood. This perfect sacrifice is typified in the Old Testament sacrificial system.
