The education of the nation of Israel was extensive, detailed and comprehensive. It was founded by covenant which established a priestly system that was meticulously organized and designed to function continuously. At its heart was a purpose-built Sanctuary where the priesthood could operate as mediators between the nation and the LORD. In addition to daily offerings, the divinely inspired Law provided for a calendar of pre-ordained festivals where Israel could articulate their appreciation for the bounty and mercy of their God.
All of these, the Priesthood, the Sanctuary, the Sacrifices and the Festivals, were needed to prepare Israel for the coming of their Messiah, who would be a High Priest of the order of Melchizedek, operate in the heavenly Sanctuary where He would offer a superior sacrifice in accordance with the pre-ordained timetable to inaugurate a superior covenant.
This book seeks to set forth the glory of the Lord Jesus as He fulfilled in every detail that which was prefigured by the priestly culture of Israel.
