Burnt offerings were offered first by Abel (Genesis 4:4), as well as by the later patriarchs. They are the first of five types of offerings mentioned in Leviticus as being incorporated into the ceremonial law of Israel. To make a true atonement (or "covering") for sins, the blood of a spotless animal must be shed, thereby anticipating the eventual offering of the sinless blood of the Lamb of God as a once-for-all offering for the sin of the world (John 1:29; 1 Peter 1:18-20; Hebrews 10:10).
