Animal sacrifices were a vital part of Old Testament rituals. But why did God command them? Could the blood of these animals actually atone for people’s sins?

In today’s message from his video teaching series Dust to Glory, R.C. Sproul explains that these sacrifices were not arbitrary rituals but rather had profound meaning and symbolism. The substitution of the animal for the individual sinner showed that sin can be covered and God’s wrath can be satisfied by the provision of another.

In and of themselves, animal sacrifices could never take away sin (Heb. 10:4). But they pointed beyond themselves to the death of Jesus Christ on the cross, which alone can satisfy the justice of God.
