Video: The offering

After the flood, Noah offered sacrifices of animals on an altar to God. Just what was the significance of this offering? Why did Noah do it? As this clip from By This Name reveals, Noah was demonstrating a key truth when it comes to salvation.

“The word atonement summarizes the whole means whereby a holy God provides sinful man with ‘right clothes’ for the heart–a covering of righteousness equal to his righteousness.”

By This Name has a video component consisting of 66 clips in which author John R. Cross teaches key concepts during the chronological journey through the Bible. These short video clips include visual aids (like the Tabernacle, Passover, altar, etc.) to help bring clarity to the story. They also take the viewers to key sites in Israel, Egypt and Jordan to provide historical and geographical context. We present a selection of these video clips. All of them are included with By This Name, either on DVD or accessible online.
