PROMISE: "In this way the priest will make atonement for him for the sin he has committed, and he will be forgiven." (4:35b)
Thought for today: Ignorance of the law is no excuse, so the Lord provided sacrifices to atone for unintentional sins, too.
Our young daughter once asked how she could give an offering to God. "Just throw it up into the air?" In today's reading, the LORD calls Moses to instruct the Israelites specifically how to make offerings to Him. Anyone wanting to make a burnt offering to the LORD for atonement is to bring a male animal without defect, from either the herd or the flock to the priest at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting. The person has some specific responsibilites depending on whether the offering is a young bull, sheep, goat or bird, and the priest has other specific responsibilities so that they participate together before the LORD. The animal they slaughter as an offering to the LORD dies in substitution, so the person symbolically dies and yet still lives to serve the LORD. The priest deals with all the blood, the fat, and the burning.

Grain offerings no longer lack the favor of the LORD as with Cain in Genesis 4:3. Since the people are moving through the desert and aren't planting and harvesting, did their grain come from storage? At any rate, they may bring flour with oil and incense, or unleavened cakes, wafers, or griddled or pan cooked pancakes. No one was to burn yeast or honey; they could only be brought as first-fruits offerings. All grain offerings are to be seasoned with salt. The priests burn the memorial portion, and keep the rest.

Fellowship offerings recognize communion between God and the one worshiping, and thank the LORD for His covenant of peace and reconciliation between Him and His people. Chapter 3 details the proper ways to make this offering, and reveals that the fat and the blood of the sacrificed animal always belong to the LORD. The LORD's people are not to eat any fat or any blood, even for generations to come.

The sin offering details what to do if the anointed priest sins unintentionally, or if the whole Israelite community or a leader or a community member finds out later that they have done something the LORD forbids. The priest's sin brings guilt on the people. Ignorance of the law does not excuse the sin. The unintentional sins of the people make them guilty. When the priest or whole Israelite community finds out they have sinned, they bring a young bull to sacrifice for the forgiveness of the LORD. When a leader finds out he has sinned, he brings a male goat to sacrifice for the forgiveness of the LORD. When an individual person finds out he has sinned, he brings a female lamb to sacrifice for the forgiveness of the LORD. And they will be forgiven.


Instructions for Priests

Leviticus 5-7

On the Essense of Circumstance, Chabad
PROMISE: "If a person thoughtlessly takes an oath to do anything, whether good or evil - in any matter one might carelessly swear about - even though he is unaware of it, in any case when he learns of it he will be guilty." (5:4)
Thought for today: The LORD made provisions for both the people's and the priests' offerings and atonement, plus food for the priests. (from 7:37-38)
Priests were chosen by GOD based upon specific hereditary requirements, not because they volunteered or wanted to serve. They were chosen through the LORD's wisdom, not their own wisdom. They were chosen through the LORD's abilities, not their own abilities. They were chosen to obey the LORD's methods to make atonement for their own and for the rest of the Israelite people's sins, not using their own methods. They were chosen to represent the LORD and to assure that He - as well as the appropriate priest - gets the right share of the offering. They were chosen, as the LORD's representatives, to participate with the people in worship, in offerings, in seeking forgiveness for not speaking up or carelessly swearing or unintentionally sinning. They are to confirm the LORD's covenant with Noah, not to allow anyone who eats fat or the blood of any bird or animal to live. They are to obey the LORD's judgement of capital punishment for specific offenses.

Aaron and his descendants were appointed, chosen through the LORD's holiness. Moses had had to remove his shoes near holy ground at the burning bush. But Aaron and his sons are just beginning to learn the LORD's very specific requirements and procedures for holy living and how not to contaminate the separated, holy areas among the Israelites.

More to this Story?, Matthew Henry Comments
PROMISE: "Among those who approach me I will show myself holy; in the sight of all the people I will be honored." (10:3b)
Thought for today: Distinguish between the holy and the common, between the unclean and the clean. (from 10:10)
Some people - the characters portrayed in the TV show "The West Wing" come to mind - can reel off intricate facts and details from memory with ease. Others need notes. Moses memorized all instructions from the LORD, but the first priests did not thoroughly remember or understand.

Our reading in Leviticus today opens with the ordination of Aaron and his four sons as the LORD had instructed Moses. The ordination process lasted seven days and then began the official exacting duties as priests. All this went as the LORD instructed. Aaron and his sons sacrificed the sin offering, the burnt offering, and the fellowship offering for the people. Then, as promised, the LORD appeared in glory to all the people. "Fire came out from the presence of the LORD and consumed the burnt offering and the fat portions on the altar." (9:24) The people shouted and fell face down.

For some reason, two of Aaron's sons, Nadab (Nadav) and Abihu (Avihu), put fire and incense in their pans and offered it to the LORD. This was not according to the LORD's instructions. The LORD's statement "I will show myself holy" became less a promise and more a declaration of fact. The two priests were too close to the holiness of the LORD to do anything that wasn't instructed, and "fire came out from the presence of the LORD and consumed them, and they died before the LORD." (10:2)

In order for Aaron and his remaining sons to continue to be holy and to continue the process of offering sacrifices in the LORD's presence, Moses dealt with the unexpected loss of his brother's sons. With the LORD's anointing oil on him, Aaron was not to grieve or mourn openly - the people could do this for him. Aaron and his sons are not to drink wine or fermented drink when going into the Tent of Meeting. The dead sons had offered unauthorized fire, so Aaron and his two sons must learn to discern and distinguish between holy and common. They must know the LORD's decrees well enough to teach all of them to the Israelites. They must continue with the current ceremony and eat the grain offering beside the holy altar. The goat of the sin offering had been burned up. "Would the LORD have been pleased if I had eaten the sin offering today?" Aaron asked Moses, which satisfied Moses.


Diet, Babies, and Skin Disease

Clean-Unclean Foods - Kosher
After childbirth: then and now - Skin disease
PROMISE: "I am the LORD who brought you up out of Egypt to be your God; therefore be holy, because I am holy." (11:45)
Thought for today: The Lord's law gave Hebrew priests the responsibility to teach and enforce clean vs unclean in nutrition, childbirth, and various diseases and accidents.
While searching Chabad.org for clarification of today's topics (clean and unclean food, purification after childbirth, and diagnosing skin disease), one search led to the explanation about Moses and Aaron disagreeing over The Uneaten Offering, from the last part of yesterday's reading. (Lev 10:19) The article emphasizes all the more that priests' duties went far beyond offering and eating sacrifices to the LORD. Aaron and sons became trained lawyers, judges, civic regulators, and teachers, with expertise in holiness, diet, biology, sanitation, post-partum obstetrics, and dermatology of a people who no longer belonged to themselves but to GOD.

The LORD described exactly what meat was to be part of the Israelite diet. Eve had been told not to eat the fruit of the tree of life, and she had added "Don't touch" to instructions she disobeyed. Now both "Don't eat" and "Don't touch" become the LORD's instructions about certain animals, birds, fish, insects, and all dead bodies. Israel is to detest the forbidden meat sources. Why? The LORD says, "I am the LORD your God; consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am holy. Do not make yourselves unclean by any creature that moves about on the ground." (11:44)

What if an animal or insect dies and falls on you or something else? The instructions are here. How long does a woman remain unclean after the birth of her baby? When and how is she purified? The instructions are here. What if you or someone you know has a skin problem - a sore, swelling, rash, raw flesh, boil, or burn? Take them to the priest for diagnosis and prescribed observation.


Health Issues

Leviticus 11:29-14:57

PROMISE: "When you enter the land of Canaan, which I am giving you as your possession, and I put a spreading mildew in a house in that land, the owner of the house must go and tell the priest, 'I have seen something that looks like mildew in my house.'" (14:34)
Thought for today: The Lord gave regulations for the priests to diagnose, observe, and treat the people's various health problems. (from 13:4a)
Have you noticed the big difference between the contacts the LORD had with the Israelites and the contacts He had with earlier Hebrews, like Abraham and Jacob? Jacob wrestled with God. Abraham was hospitable, preparing food for the LORD, and even debating with Him about how many righteous men needed to be found in Sodom for the city to be saved from distruction. But since meeting with Moses at the burning bush, the LORD has not used a human-like form and has not been readily accessible to the people of Israel. They have seen His miraculous works, but His appearance has been as fire and smoke, holy to the point that it is dangerous for humans to "come as they are" into His presence. The Israelites are called to become holy themselves, to learn and obey His commandments and regulations, to distinguish between clean and unclean, and to bring specific sacrificial offerings to the LORD through the priests for praise, worship, and atonement.

This change especially hit me when I read an article saying that when the two priests died by fire, the LORD did not want the Sanctuary dedication disrupted by any change of focus like mourning. So Moses, Aaron, and his two sons concentrated on the priority of this new relationship with the LORD over anything personal.

We continue reading health regulations today for priests to diagnose head and chin sores, isolating infected people from healthy people for observation, and dealing with and eliminating mildew. The priest who identifies and sends infected people outside the camp makes periodic rounds out there to examine them. If any have healed, the priest follows the regulations for ceremonial cleansing with two birds, cedar wood, scarlet yarn, and hyssop. Complete personal cleanliness follows, and the person is clean. Eight days later, the person brings certain offerings to the priest for a guilt offering, a waive offering, and a sin offering. With blood and oil the priest makes atonement for the one to be cleansed. Likewise, the priest is given exact procedures for dealing with reports of spreading mildew in houses when the people settle in Canaan. Houses with mildew are unclean, must be examined and dealt with by the priest. After the house is declared clean, it must be purified and atonement made for it, with offerings to the LORD.


Disease Control and Atonement
Feb 17:
Leviticus 15-17

Articles on Atonement, Torah Bytes
PROMISE: "You must keep the Israelites separate from things that make them unclean, so they will not die in their uncleanness for defiling my dwelling place, which is among them." (15:31)
Thought for today: The sin offering of atonement from the LORD - for wickedness, uncleanness, and rebellion - was one animal sacrificed to die and one sacrificed to live away from camp. (from 13:4a)
Concluding this section of health control issues, Leviticus 15 regulations deal with any man who has a bodily discharge, identifying him and anything he comes into close contact with (bed, chair, another person, saddle, utensil, etc) as unclean. If he spits on someone else, he contaminates them. Once the discharge stops, the man waits 7 days before his ceremonial cleansing then atonement with offerings through the priest. Note that religious rituals come after healing. An emission of semen makes one unclean that day until evening. After sex, both man and woman must wash away the semen with water from bodies and clothing. During her period, a woman and anything or anyone she touches is unclean until evening. A woman whose discharge lasts longer than a week is unclean; anyone and anything she touches is contaminated. She follows a ceremonial cleaning and atonement offering similar to the man's requirements. This explains why these people must be separated from others.

The message returns to the mortal danger of the two priests who died during the Sanctuary dedication. The LORD instructs Aaron through Moses he must enter the Most Holy Place sanctuary area wearing special clothing after bathing and bringing sin offerings and burnt offerings for himself and for the community. One of the goats for the people's sin offering will be chosen by lot to be the scapegoat. Only after specific sacrifices may Aaron take the pan of burning coals from the altar and, along with 2 handfulls of incense, go behind the curtain. I'm not sure how many trips Aaron was to make, but when Aaron adds the incense to the fire its smoke will cover the atonement cover above the Testimony, so Aaron - who must be alone - will not die. Atonement by sacrifice is required because of the people's uncleanness and rebellion. Then Aaron brings out the live scapegoat. There will be an annual Day of Atonement to cleanse the people.

Personal sacrifices not brought to the Tent of Meeting are illegal and must stop. Anyone making open field sacrifices whether to the LORD or to the detestable goat idols (demons) will now be cut off, guilty of bloodshed. Because the life of every creature is in the blood, blood is not to be eaten. Instead, respect the blood and drain it. The LORD gives blood to make atonement on the altar for your lives.

Competitive imposter sacrifice to Molech
PROMISE: "If you defile the land (with the sexual relations of Lev 18), it will vomit you out as it vomited out the nations that were before you." (18:28)
Thought for today: I will put limits on my sexual activity, and distance between myself and anyone who does detestable things.
Like the Israelites we are reading about, most of us have been led out of an "Egypt" culture and prepared to move into a "Canaan" where the LORD wants us to be, but things are far from perfect. You could be a missionary, called away from your homeland to another country. You could be a young man, called away from MTV or dating, or an old woman, called away from gossip or addiction. You could be you - called and reminded by the LORD to follow Him and not the practices and behaviors of others living around you. (More details: Deut 7) The LORD says, "Keep my decrees and laws, for the man who obeys them will live by them. I am the LORD." (18:5) We will get another look at what this means to us in 4 days when we read Galatians 3:12. Also remember the delema of the rich man asking Jesus about moving from this life into eternal life. (Matthew 19:16-26)

Basically know that what laws and principles you choose to live by will shape your life. Know that the LORD has set limits on your sexual relations, including "fooling around", since the translation "have sexual relations with" literally means "uncover the nakedness of". If you don't limit your sexual relations to your husband or wife, your life will be different from the LORD's plan for you. Abraham married his half-sister Sarah, and Jacob married sisters Leah and Rachel, but neither are allowed for Jacob's offspring. No child sacrificed to Molech, no homosexuality, no animal sex. The people soon to be dispossessed from Canaan did these things, defiling themselves and the land they lived on. The land was set to vomit out those people, and would even vomit out the Israelites after them, if they defile the land. The Israelites were called to separate from anyone who does detestable things. Don't defile yourself by following customs that are detestable to the LORD. Instead, be holy - separated to observe and obey the LORD's way. The LORD is like a parent warning you to avoid a "hot stove" danger you can't see.

Respect your parents. Rest on the Sabbath. Don't turn to idols. Don't have good intentions that don't count because you didn't follow through. (19:5) Provide for the poor. Don't steal. Don't lie. Don't deceive. Don't swear falsely using the LORD's name. Don't defraud. Pay wages on time. Don't curse the deaf or trip the blind. Love your neighbor as yourself. (19:18b) Do not practice divination or sorcery, or seek mediums or spiritists. They defile you. Rise and show respect for elders. Love aliens living in your country as you love yourself - you too were an alien in Egypt. Be honest in business. If the people of a community close their eyes to someone sacrificing their child to Molech, the LORD himself will be set against that family. Consecrate yourself to be holy because the LORD is holy. Don't live according to the customs of the nations where you live. You are set apart by the LORD your God, in - but not of - the world. So make a distinction between clean and unclean. Be holy, separated to the LORD who is holy and true - not a false god or idol.

PROMISE: "Keep My commands and follow them. I am the LORD. Do not profane my holy name. I must be acknowledged as holy by the Israelites. I am the LORD, who makes you holy (22:31-32)
Thought for today: The Lord appointed some days for sacred assemblies, rest, and feasts to demonstrate redemption and consecration to his people Israel.
Special thanks to guest commentator, Jeremy Hoekstra, whose blog is The Coffee Pot
Today's reading from Leviticus talks a lot about the behavior of the priests. There are rules brought forth by God that the priests must follow in regards to who they may marry, who may actually present the offerings, who may eat the offerings, etc... The Lord is telling Moses that he wants the priests to be holy. "Be holy as I am holy" is a phrase we keep coming back to again and again in Leviticus. God is now relating that to the priests. However, he is a little more strict with the priests. God is holding them to a higher standard. It reminds me of Luke 12:48 ("To whom much is given, much is required"). I believe that is exactly what God is saying to these priests. He wants them to be the ones who set the standard for the rest of the people. God asks and expects this from them because He has given this great responsibility of being a priest to them.

Can this be translated to our lives today? Yes, I think it can. This is the way our leaders need to live today. In the church our leaders (whether right, wrong or indifferent) are held to a higher standard. These are the people we look to for guidance and for example in how to live life. In order to do that to the fullest, they have to live a life that is pleasing to the Lord. They have to strive to be holy as God is holy. As lay people we want to live lives that are pleasing to God. As representatives of Christ in the world, we need to listen to the Lord and live the lives that He wants us to live. God already sees us as Holy through the blood of Christ, but our resonse should be to strive to live a life that is "holy." That means following the word of the Lord and living above reproach. That way no one can point to us and call us hypocritical and we can really shine before men.

A Memory Verse: "Do not take advantage of each other, but fear your God. I am the LORD your God." (25:17)
Thought for today: "If one of your countrymen becomes poor and is unable to support himself among you, help him as you would an alien or a temporary resident, so he can continue to live among you. Do not take interest of any kind from him, but fear your God, so that your countryman may continue to live among you." (25:35-36)
Noteworthy in today's reading are the LORD's instructions for Israelites to contribute clear olive oil and for priests to bake 12 loaves of bread for each Sabbath, plus the story about the son of interracial parents (Israelite mother and Egyptian father) who blasphemed the Name using it in a curse during a fight with an Israelite. (Blaspheming breaks one of the 7 laws of Noah.) Those who heard him brought him to Moses, who put him in custody until the LORD revealed how to resolve the situation. The LORD said that all who had heard him misusing the LORD's name were to lay their hands on his head then stone him to death. The same law - life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth - was to apply to the alien and the native-born.

PROMISE: "If you follow my decrees and are careful to obey my command ... I will walk among you and be your God, and you will be my people. I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt so that you would no longer be slaves to the Eqyptians; I broke the bars of your yoke and enabled you to walk with heads held high." (26:3,12-13)
Thought for today: God planned in advance for how to deal with Israel's disobedience of treachery and hostility, and their sins of rejecting and abhoring the Lord's ways. (from 26:40-45)
Are you surprised to see the LORD's intricate understanding of economics as He regulates Israel's financial change and exchange? "The LORD is spirit, and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth." What need does He have for economics? Yes, He has watched all men and women living out their days on Earth, but I don't get the idea that He has learned economics from them. Of course the Messiah, a carpenter, knew enough about professional fishing and farming to use them as illustrations for spiritual truths. We've seen in the LORD's intricate design of the Tabernacle, not to mention all of creation, that He works all things together, spiritual and physical. Isn't the LORD using lessons in economics to let His students get first hand knowledge of greater spiritual applications of consecration, redemption, liberty, and property ownership?

In his book "The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism", Max Weber studied how the values of a group of people influence their social, political, and economic facts of life. Too simply, the values of Christian Protestanism led to the economics of Capitalism and the politics of democracy. I wish I understood it better. Suffice it to say that the Israelites receiving the commandments through Moses had a unique approach to the LORD, and their values were leading them by theocracy to a unique culture of honest economics, newly rich and newly poor, free men and slaves, aliens and countrymen, where all shared and rested during a weekly Sabbath, a 7th year Sabbath, and a 50th year Sabbath. Every 50 years, the whole nation observed the Year of Jubilee, when property and men who had sold themselves to labor for others were to be redeemed. The Jubilee was time set apart to proclaim and experience the cost of liberty for a people who had been slaves in Egypt. While it is not practiced today, Jewish economic ethics and responsibilities are.

Obey the LORD and reap the rewards throughout your life. "Keep My decrees and laws, for the man who obeys them will live by them. I am the LORD." (18:5b) Disobey the LORD and reap disaster and disappointment in life. If the people became hostile toward the LORD and His ways, He would send them severe afflictions, wild animals, loss of children and cattle, greatly decreasing the number of the people. This is how the LORD corrects his people. With or without them, the land would have its sabbaths. The response He watches for is repentence, not increased hostility and disloyalty. Long before the people set foot in Canaan, the LORD knew that without Him they would not be able to stand against their enemies, and would waste away in enemy lands. And He told them, so some would recognize and realize who is the LORD. He would watch for them to identify and confess their own sins and the sins of all the previous generations. The LORD has a long memory.

Leviticus concludes with rules for valuing people, animals, and land their owners dedicated to the LORD, in case the giver wanted to redeem or ransome them, buy them back. Some things given to the LORD could never be redeemed. Devoting someone to the LORD was not to be a loophole for avoiding a death sentence. A tithe of every crop and the method of tithing every 10th animal is detailed. Although Israelites were not to charge interest on loans, if someone redeemed a man, animal, or land, there was an additional charge of a fifth of its value to be paid.
