Leviticus 6-7 — lessons from the sacrifices about thanksgiving and restitution

This chapter seems like a reiteration of the prior chapters but there’s more to this chapter than repetition. Every time the text says, “Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying…,” you have a new edict from the Lord. Many of these edicts were only for the sons of Aaron, and not for the general public.

Thought Questions and Comments

What does it mean to be “cut off from the people”?

What does it mean to add a fifth to what you have stolen for restitution?

Since we are no longer under the death penalty or the guilt penalty because of Messiah, how does the Thanksgiving offering take a special significance?

How many blessings do we miss because we ignore our shortcomings?

Are these offerings “down to earth” for us or “above our heads”?

How is the veil torn down?

What penalty did a priest have to pay if he was negligent in his priestly duties?

Why does God take the priestly duties so seriously?
