Bible Study Notes

Exodus 29:1-10 To consecrate the priests, they shall bring a bull, two rams, unleavened bread, cakes and wafers of wheat flour mixed with oil. Aaron and his sons shall be washed. The priests shall then be dressed and their heads anointed with oil.

Exodus 29:10-14 The priests shall touch the head of the bull, and then kill the bull at the entrance of the Tabernacle. Blood of the bull shall be placed on the 4 horns of the altar. The fat, entrails, lobe of the liver, and both kidneys shall be burned on the altar. The flesh, its skin, and waste shall burn outside the camp. This is the sin offering.

Exodus 29:15-18 The same shall be done to one of the rams, but its blood shall be splashed on the sides of the altar. The ram shall be cut in pieces, the entrails and legs washed, placed on the altar and burned. This is a food offering.

Exodus 29:19-21 The same shall be done to the other ram, but its blood shall be placed on the tip of the right ear, thumbs of the right hand, and the toes of the right foot of Aaron and his sons. The remainder of the blood shall be splashed against the sides of the altar. Part of the blood that is on the altar and some of the anointing oil shall be mixed and sprinkled on Aaron and his son’s garments. Aaron, his sons, and their garments shall then be made Holy.

Note: Daubing blood on the right ear, hand, and big toe symbolically sanctified the ear to hear the word of God, the hand to do the work of God, and the foot to walk in the way of God.

Exodus 29:22-25 From the second ram, they shall take the fat, the lobe of the liver, two kidneys, the right thigh, one loaf of bread, one cake of bread made with oil, and one wafer of bread (all unleavened), and put them on Aaron and his sons palms to wave them as a wave offering before the Lord. Then they shall put the mentioned things on the altar and burn it as a food offering to the Lord.

Exodus 29:26-28 The breast of the second ram shall be waved before the Lord as a wave offering and shall be the priest’s portion. The breast and left thigh shall be consecrated and be for Aaron and his sons as a perpetual due from the people of Israel. It shall be the peace offering.

Exodus 29:29-34 The son who succeeds Aaron shall receive Aaron’s garments and go through the ordaining ceremony as High Priest. Aaron and his son’s portion of the lamb shall be boiled and eaten with the bread in the entrance of the Tabernacle. Any remainder until morning shall be burned for it is Holy.

Exodus 29:35-37 Ordination shall be seven days. A bull is to be sacrificed every day for seven days. The altar is to be purified and anointed to be most holy from the sacrifices of the ordination.. Whatever touches the altar shall be holy.

Exodus 29:38-46 Offered on the Altar: two lambs one year old every day. One in the morning and the other at twilight. The first lamb shall be offered with 1/10 of fine flour with ¼ of hin of beaten oil, and ¼ of a hin of wine for a drink offering. The second lamb shall be offered the same way as a pleasing aroma to the Lord. This shall be done throughout their generations at the entrance of the Tabernacle before the Lord, where He will meet with them and speak with them there. The presence of the Lord will sanctify the Tabernacle and the altar and He will be their God and dwell with them.

Notes: A hin is Four to 6 gallons.
