In this video Aniu K. Kevichusa shows how sacrifice is essentially an act of cleansing. In the Old Testament, sacrifice rituals are often placed alongside purity laws. Sacrifice makes sense only in the backdrop of purity and impurity.
The Christian story is not one in which humans are sacrificing to God to appease Him, but rather it is God who is sacrificing Himself for His creation. God does the giving up. He pays the greatest sacrifice of all.
The liberating message of the Gospel is that Christ has made the ultimate sacrifice. He has perfected it. Because Christ has made the ultimate sacrifice, we do not have to offer any sacrifice.
