February Sixteen

Something I feel is important is to learn from others mistakes. Please learn from me!!DO NOT PUT STICKY NOTES IN YOUR BIBLE. The paper of my bible is very thin and it tore it :(

Preparing the lamps/numbers 8:1-4

the Levites dedicated/Numbers 8:5-26
Why did God chose the Levites to be set apart? 5 Then the Lord said to Moses, 6 “Now set the Levites apart from the rest of the people of Israel and make them ceremonially clean.
Is the the water of purification what the catholics consider holy wather? 7 Do this by sprinkling them with the water of purification, and
the second Passover/ numbers 9:1-14
Is the 2nd Passover still celebrated?

Procedures for the burnt offering/Leviticus 1:1-17
Why on the north side? 11 Slaughter the animal on the north side of the altar in the Lord’s presence, and Aaron’s sons, the priests, will splatter its blood against all sides of the altar.
Why the east side? 16 The priest must also remove the crop and the feathers[d] and throw them in the ashes on the east side of the altar

Procedures for the grain offerering/ Leviticus 2:1-16
I understand,if I am correct, the death of an animal to take the place of human death as an offering. But why is a grain offereing needed?

Procedures for the peace offering/Leviticus 3:1-17
Why and what is a peace offering? Peace from what? We are not promised a peaceful life, right?
Why is the blood splattered? 8 lay your hand on its head, and slaughter it in front of the Tabernacle. Aaron’s sons will then splatter the sheep’s blood against all sides of the altar. I was watching a show on National Geographic channel. It was about modern cult rituals and when I was reading abou these sacrifices it had some similarities. It really freaked me out. It seems very barbaric to me. How often did the sacrifices take place? How was the area cleaned. I know in csi shows they can see the blood even after it is cleaned with bleach. I think it would coz disease.
