Draw Near

From the beginning of God’s relationship with his people, it was important that they drew near to him. In fact, the Old Testament sacrificial system was designed by God so his people could draw near to him. In order to understand what it means to draw near, we will focus on the sacrifices described in the book of Leviticus and how each sacrifice relates to Jesus, and ultimately, what each of these sacrifices means for our relationship with God today.
