Some incorrectly conclude from verses 6-8 that God was not interested in sacrifices and that, therefore, there should not have been any. However, God ordained the sacrifices Himself, so they had to be proper. The point is that the sacrifices taught lessons; they had a typical value. The main lesson was that without the shedding of blood, there could be no remission of sin; that is, death was connected with the forgiveness of sins. Indeed the sacrifices should have pointed the nation of Israel to Messiah.
