Regular sacrifices in ancient Israel

In Numbers 27-28 Moses instructs Israel on the regular sacrifices to be offered thru-out the year. The bull, ram and lamb are all burnt offerings (Leviticus 1). All are also offered with set amounts of flour and oil. The goat is a sin offering (Leviticus 6:24-30). All animals are male.

All sacrifices are in addition to other sacrifices required on the same day. So on the Sabbath there are 4 lambs offered: 2 for the Daily Offering and 2 for the Sabbath Offering.

There is no extra sacrifice required at Passover but there is with the first day of Unleavened Bread, the festival associated with Passover. Passover occurs on day 14 and Unleavened Bread days 15–21. This is an 8 day feast.

The Feast of Weeks is also called the Feast of Harvest and Pentecost.

The Feast of Booths (or Tabernacles) is also called the Feast of Ingathering. It is also an 8 day feast.
