Homilies on Leviticus: 1-16

By Origen; Gary Wayne Barkley | Go to book overview

HOMILY 3

Concerning the Scripture, "If a soul sins and hears the voice of an
oath and is a witness or sees or is an accomplice
, if he does not
declare it, then this one will be liable for his sin. And whatever
soul touches anything unclean or dead, or anything taken from
a wild animal
," 1.etc.

THIS DISCOURSE is about sacrifices which are offered by those who sinned through ignorance or involuntarily. In the ones preceding, when we spoke of the sacrifice of the high priest, we observed that it was not written about him that he was ignorant. But, if anyone should remember well these things which were said, he can tell us that we can hold as a figure of Christ the sacrifice which we said the high priest offered "for sin." 2. It will not seem appropriate to say that Christ, "who knew not sin," 3. offered a sacrifice "for sin," although the deed is done through a mystery and he himself is set up both as high priest and as the sacrifice. See therefore if to this we can answer as follows: Christ indeed "did not sin" but became "sin for us"; 4. while he who was in the form of God saw fit to be in the form of a servant; while he who is immortal dies, and the impassible suffers, and the invisible is seen, and because either death or every remaining weakness in the flesh was brought upon us all by our sinful condition, even he who "was made in the image of man and was perceived as man in appearance," 5. without a doubt it was "for sin" that he had received from us that "he bore our sins 6. as an unstained calf"; 7. that is, "he offered" his spotless flesh as "a gift to God." 8.
