The Book of Leviticus, Chapter 3

This chapter is about the fellowship offering. This chapter is also a shorty! This chapter gets into what you can, & can’t, do, & offer, for the fellowship offering. I hope y’all enjoy the read!

If someone is making an offering of fellowship & the offering is from the herd, regardless of the animal’s gender, the person is to bring the animal before God. The animal HAS to be without blemish/defect. The person then has to bring the animal to the entrance to the Tent & lay their hands on the the head of animal. (Now keep in mind, that in this time in history, animal sacrifice was not uncommon. However, there was a LOT of human sacrifice that was still going on.)

Aaron & his sons would then sprinkle the blood against the altar on all of the sides. From the fellowship offering, the person is to bring a sacrifice made to God, by fire. Here’s what that is: all the fat that covers the inner parts or is connected to them, both kidneys with the fat on them near the “Loins,” & the covering of the liver, which would be removed with the kidneys. Aaron’s sons then burnt these various items on the altar, on top of the burnt offering. This was all done on burning wood. (Hey, this is what the actual bible says. I mean, think about it. How else are they gonna burn/cook things back then? I mean, seriously. C’mon.)

If the person offers an animal from a flock, it’s also to be without defect/blemish. And the gender is also irrelevant. If the person offers a lamb, they’re to present it to God. They’re to take the lamb to the entrance of the Tent & lay their hands on the head of the lamb. They then slaughter the lamb at the entrance of the Tent. Aaron’s sons then sprinkle the blood against all of the sides of the altar. From the fellowship offering, the person is then to bring a sacrifice made to God, by fire. Here’s the offering: its fat, the entire fat tail that’s cut off close to the backbone, all the fat that covers the inner parts or is connected to them, both kidneys with the fat on them, the covering of the liver, which was removed with the kidneys. The priest will burn them on the altar as food.

If offering is a goat, the person is present it to God. The person puts hands on the goat (on the head), & slaughter it in front of the Tent. Aaron’s sons then sprinkled the blood against the altar of all of its sides. From what the person offers, they were to make this offering to God, by fire: all the fat that covers the inners or connected to them, both kidneys with the fat on them & the covering of the liver, which is removed with the kidneys. The priest will burn them on the altar as food.

All of the fat is God’s! This was a supposed to be a lasting ordinance for generations to come, into forever. Wherever the Israelites were to live. They were to also NOT to eat ANY fat or ANY blood. (Sorry, not ritualistic blood drinking. No vampirism!)
