Which in Israel were important because of crops for offerings that took place in certain times of the year. All Praises with have The Christ who took the physical sacrifices and transcended them to spiritual sacrifices. 1 Peter 2:5. Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
