A question and answer style post from Pastor Bret McAtee concerning the truest meaning of the word holocaust.

The reality is that Jesus Christ is the holocaust offering and no other holocaust can remotely compare to the holocaust offering of the Lord Christ.

Years ago, we were part of an after-dinner discussion wherein a practicing Jew was maintaining that the genocide of the Jews in Nazi Germany was a prophetic fulfillment of Isaiah 53. It was the first time I had ever heard such an assertion made and I took issue with the claim by asking how verse seven of that chapter could possible relate to the Jews when it states:
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.

There was no response. How could there be? It wasn't a clever question, it was an obvious question.
Jesus Christ alone was our holocaust offering.

It may be a sensitive topic but it deserves our careful thought.
