Abstract

The opening chapters of the Book of Mormon mention sacrifices offered by Lehi. Some are called “burnt offerings,” others simply “offering” or “sacrifice.” By examining the sacrifices of ancient Israel noted in the Bible, we come to an understanding of Lehi’s sacrifices—their meaning and their purpose. In short, Lehi made offerings for the safe return of his sons and for purging serious sins.
