Bible study 99 – Leviticus 9

After the priests’ ordination, they are commanded to offer a mix of burnt offerings, sin offerings and sacrifices of well-being with seven animals. The description of the sacrifices is as graphic as ever. If you are an animal rights activist or else just repulsed by mistreatment of animals, I strongly advise you to just don’t read anything in Leviticus at all.

But the sacrifices work, and God shows himself in a huge fire.

Leviticus 9:13
And they brought him the burnt offering piece by piece, and the head, which he turned into smoke on the altar.
