Offerings | The Sacrificial System

In this class Rod Bryant discusses the Offerings which is an introduction to the sacrificial system. The word “Karbanot” is usually translated as “sacrifices” or “offerings”; however, both of these terms suggest a loss of something or a giving up of something, and although that is certainly a part of the ritual, that is not at all the literal meaning of the Hebrew word. The word Karbanot comes from the root Qof-Resh-Bet, which means “to draw near,” and indicates the primary purpose of offerings: to draw us near to G-d.
