Burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not require. Then I said, “Here I am, I have come; it is written about me in the scroll. I desire to do your will, my God; your law is within my heart.”

Psalm 40:6-7

Obeying the true spirit of the Law was always valued more by God than sacrifice. (compare with 1 Sam.15:22). Jesus, who kept the law and made it honourable, was the only one who could make the greatest, perfect sacrifice of himself to rescue sinners like us.
