This is not a verse by verse commentary. Actually the plan of the book is to take the Levitical sacrifices, types, etc. and relate them to the true Sacrifice, Jesus Christ. You will delight in Bonar's explanations of the sacrifices and the priesthood. You will learn a great deal more about the atonement, and about the intercession of Christ our Mediator. The one great principle of interpretation which we keep before us is apostolic practice. This is the key we have used. We find the sacred writers adduce the likeness that exists between the thing that was typified and the type itself, and resting there. So we lay down this as our great rule; there must be an obvious resemblance. And next, we search into these types in the belief that Christ is the center-truth of revelation (and surely no principle is more obviously true)! The body or substance of the law is Christ (Col. 2:17), and types are a series of shadows projected from Christ. who is "the body." It is this Messiah that has been from the beginning the chief object to be unveiled to the view of men. And it is in the fact that the New Testament light has risen that our advantage lies, in searching what these things mean (there are 40 references to this book in the NT). We, under the New Testament, look upon an unveiled Savior. And going back to the Old Testament we can see far better than the Jews could the features and form of Jesus the Beloved under that veil. - Publisher.
