Leviticus Chapter 2

Leviticus 2:1

lev 2:1

fine flour

The meal-offering. The fine flour speaks of the evenness and balance of the character of Christ; of that perfection in which no quality was in excess, none lacking; the fire, of His testing by suffering, even unto death; frankincense; the fragrance of His life Godward (see) (Exo 30:34) absence of leaven, His character as "the Truth" (see) (Exo 12:8) absence of honey; -- His was not that mere natural sweetness which may exist quite apart from grace; oil mingled, Christ as born of the Spirit (Mat 1:18-23) oil upon, Christ as baptized with the Spirit; (Joh 1:32); (Joh 6:27) the oven, the unseen sufferings of Christ -- His inner agonies; (Heb 2:18); (Mat 27:45-46) the pan, His more evident sufferings (for example) (Mat 27:27-31) salt, the pungency of the truth of God -- that which arrests the action of leaven.

Leviticus 2:11

lev 2:11



For meanings of leaven, see (Mat 13:.33). Also (Lev 7:13),

(See Scofield) - (Lev 7:13)


honey is mere natural sweetness and could not symbolize the divine graciousness of the Lord Jesus.
