od ordained divers kinds of oblations and sacrifices, to
assure his people of the forgiveness of their offences, if they
offered them in true faith and obedience. Also he appointed the

portion. He showed what feasts they should observe, and at what
times. He declared by these sacrifices and ceremonies, that the
reward of sin is death, and that without the blood of Christ,
the innocent Lamb of God, there can be no forgiveness of sins.
