Q: Why did the Israelites offer lambs and other innocent animals as a sacrifice?
A: The Israelites offered sacrifices because God demands the shedding of blood as a payment for sin. These sacrifices pointed to the great sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
“The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, ‘Behold the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world.’” John 1:29
Kid’s Q&A is a modern catechism created by the pastors of Bethany Baptist Church, intended to educate children in biblical, systematic, and practical theology. Each question includes theological instruction and a Bible memory verse. Each week at Bethany one of the 52 questions is read from the pulpit during the morning worship service. Children are encouraged to memorize the questions, answers, and verses. Parents are encouraged to use this tool to spark conversation and facilitate discipleship in the home.
