Understanding the Olah (
Burnt) and Minkha (Grain) Offerings
March 31, 2018
Exodus 12:21-51; Joshua 5:2-6:1; John 19:31-20:1
The assembly of The Foundation of the Word celebrated the Pesach (Passover) on the evening of Friday, March 30, 2018. As we enter into and celebrate for seven days the Feast of Unleavened Bread (Matzot), Pastor Richard explains for us the first two of the five different offerings. During the first portion normally covering the Torah, Pastor Richard discusses the Olah offering, also called the Burnt offering, because it is fully consumed on the altar. During the segment normally covering the Haftorah, Pastor Richard explains for us the Minkha offering, also called the Grain offering. There is no blood shed for this kind of offering, and only a portion of the grain is actually burned on the altar, while the remaining belongs to the priest who presents the offering. In both of his teachings today, Pastor Richard explains how we, as believers and servants of Hashem, can be the Olah and the Minkha offerings in the giving of our lives as His servants.
