The Mystery of the Sin Offering
When we think of the ministry of the priesthood, we think of bringing the offerings of the people before the LORD. When the tabernacle was dedicated and Aaron brought the first offerings before the LORD, he did so for himself and his sons as well as the collective children of Israel. The scriptures describe Aaron bringing the offerings for the people in Leviticus 9:15-17. What happens after the required portions of the offering are burnt on the altar? Parts of the offerings are set aside for the priesthood. Are these portions just part of the compensation package for the priesthood, or is there a spiritual significance to these portions?
