The Great Sacrifice, or The Gospel According to Leviticus


4 publishers 1854

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Using comparison with the Gospels, John Cumming introduces salvation and vindication by grace—through inherent faith in the sacrifice. Cumming expresses that as Christians while we receive grace through faith in the sacrifice of Christ, the Israelites’ faith in blood sacrifice led to similar vindication.

Praise for the Print Edition

This volume contains much good and solid matter, and has evidently cost the author more earnest and serious thought than some of his productions, to which we could refer, at more than twice its bulk.
