Primitive Sacrifices

Primitive Sacrifices

It is evident that the Bible does not record all that was communicated to man; however, the careful student sees that sacrificial worship was a Divine revelation. The statements that Cain BROUGHT and Abel BROUGHT their respective sacrifices, may indicate that there was a specific time and place where offerings were presented to God ( Genesis 4:1-4 ). In addition to this, we learn that Abel offered his sacrifice by faith, ( Hebrews 11:4 ), and that faith comes by hearing the word of God ( Romans 10:17 ); that Cain sinned ( Genesis 4:7 ; is the transgression of the law ( 1 John 3:4 ).
