Burnt Offering
(Hebrew "'olah"; i.e., "ascending") - The burnt offering is discussed in Leviticus 1:3-17; 6:8-13. The whole being is consumed by fire and regarded as ascending to God while being consumed. Part of every offering was burnt in the sacred fire, but this was wholly burnt--a whole burnt offering.
Communion
Fellowship with God. The Lord's Supper is so called (1 Cor 10:16), because in it there is fellowship between Christ and His disciples, and of the disciples with one another.
Guilt Offering
The guilt offering or trespass offering is described in Leviticus 5:14-6:7. It is different from the sin offering chiefly in the restitution requirement. This offering also atones for the sacrificer and he or she is forgiven.
Holiness
In the highest sense, holiness belongs to God (Isa 6:3) and to Christians as consecrated to God's service, insofar as they are conformed in all things to the will of God (Rom 6:19). Personal holiness is a work of gradual development.
Levite
A descendant of the tribe of Levi. This name is generally used as a title for a portion of the tribal members, who were set apart for the subordinate offices of the sanctuary service, as assistants to the priests.
Meal Offering
The meal offering or cereal offering that was presented to the Lord is described in Leviticus 2:1-16; 6:14-23. It was burned in part on the altar. The part burned memorialized the worshiper before the Lord; the part that remained was eaten by the priests. Cereal offerings accompanied animal sacrifices, but mostly in the case of the burnt offering.
Peace Offering
The peace offering is discussed in Leviticus 3:1-17; 7:11-34. There were three kinds: (a) eucharistic or thanksgiving offerings, expressive of gratitude for blessings received; (b) fulfillment of a vow offerings, but expressive also of thanks for benefits received; and (c) freewill offerings, something spontaneously devoted to God.
Priest
Under the Levitical arrangements the office of the priesthood was limited to the tribe of Levi, and to only one family of that tribe, the family of Aaron. They represented the people before God and offered the various sacrifices prescribed in the Law.
Redemption
The purchase back of something that had been lost, by the payment of a ransom.
Sacrifice
The offering up of sacrifice is to be regarded as a divine institution. Sacrifices were of two kinds: (1) Unbloody - such as (a) firstfruits and tithes, (b) meal and drink offerings, and (c) incense; and (2) Bloody - such as (a) burnt offerings, (b) peace offerings, and (c) sin and trespass offerings.
Sin Offering
Individual members of the congregation, as well as the congregation at large, and the high priest were obligated, on being convicted by their conscience of any particular sin, to come with a sin offering (Lev 4:1-5:13; 6:24-30). On the Day of Atonement it was made with special solemnity (Lev 16:5, 11, 15).
