His deeds are wonderful, too marvelous to describe. And he asked for bloodshed. A religious system that depends on scapegoats, victims, and bloodshed stands in opposition to the divine way of justice and love.
Who made this discovery? It was the radicals … the prophets. It took prophetic insight to imagine a religious world beyond sacrifice. The religious establishment was bent on its own preservation, and lacked the imagination to see otherwise. Here are a few examples of what the prophets came to realise:.
For I desire mercy, not sacrifice , and acknowledgement of God rather than burnt offerings Hos. Even though you bring me burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept them. Though you bring choice fellowship offerings, I will have no regard for them Amos 5: Shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves a year old? And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God Mic 6: Sacrifice and offering you did not desire —but my ears you have opened—burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not require Ps You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it; you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings.
The prophets and poets make a forceful case. To resolve this apparent tension, interpreters propose that their theology matured. It is somewhat akin to a parent helping their kids bzzzzaaaap! God spoke the language of the day ritual sacrifice , and then later led the people to a more mature and even corrected religious practice. Some also contend that the prophets and poets presaged the abolition of sacrifice in the New Testament.
God set his sights on substitutionary sacrifice, or specifically, the scapegoating and violence of victims in the sacrificial system, marking them for elimination. The prophets caught wind of this, and argued that worship would eventually move beyond its primitive state. Greg Boyd reflects this evolutionary view of Israelite religion and ethics in his recent Crucifixion of the Warrior God , though from a slightly different perspective. While an earlier tradition depicted Yahweh as enjoying animal sacrifices e.
The Old Testament is the inspired telling of the story of Israel coming to know their God. Along the way assumptions are made.
One of these assumptions was that Yahweh shares certain violent attributes with the pagan deities of the ancient Near East. These assumptions were inevitable, but wrong. For example, the Hebrew prophets will eventually begin to question the assumption that Yahweh desires blood sacrifice. I agree with much that Zahnd says here. The OT can provide us with countless cases of change and development.
There are serious problems with this story of advancing religion beyond sacrifice. Here are a few:. Take away from me the noise of your songs ; I will not listen to the melody of your harps.
