Today's passage: Leviticus 4
- Chapter 4 through verse 13 of chapter 5 give instruction concerning sin offerings.
- Today's chapter speaks to unintentional sins committed (Violating God's law without understanding, unbeknown to the person).
- Anyone in Israel (From the priests, to the common citizen, to the nation as a whole) was capable of sin (As we all still are). And all were responsible to seek purification for their sin. Sin against God requires purification.
Questions to consider:
- What would be an example of sinning unintentionally? Can you think of a time when this happened in the Old Testament or the New?
- What would be happening in a person's heart when sinning unintentionally versus sinning intentionally? Why is it good to still hold people accountable for unintentional sin (Or transgress, or violate the law) in a society (Like speeding on a road a person is unfamiliar with)?
- What is needed to prevent a person or a group of people to sinning unintentionally? What did Israel need to learn and be familiar with? What do we need to know?
