October 18, Numbers 29

This chapter has quite a bit in it, three different feasts; Trumpets, the Day of Atonement, and Tabernacles. We begin with the New Year, blowing the trumpet to celebrate, and of course sacrifices. Then we have the Day of Atonement, for details read Leviticus 16. And the feast of Tabernacles. For a week the people of Israel would live in tents to remember how they lived in tents while wandering the wilderness. There are still Jews who practice this today, without the sacrifices. Adding up all of the animals offered during this feast there are; 8 goats, 71 bulls, 15 rams, and 105 lambs. During this feast there are 199 animals sacrificed, yet on a Passover feast there were more than 255,000 lambs sacrificed. And this needed to be repeated yearly.
