Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

February 6 - Morning

"If any member of the community sins unintentionally and does what is forbidden in any of the Lord’s commands, when they realize their guilt 
and the sin they have committed becomes known,
they must bring as their offering for the sin they committed a female goat without defect.
 They are
to lay their hand on the head of the sin offering and slaughter it at the place of the burnt offering.

- Leviticus 4:27-29

The Sin Offering    

The common person in Israel would bring a female goat as a sin offering. This is minor compared to a priest who needs to bring young bull (Leviticus 4:3) as a sin offering. The tribal leader is to bring a male goat, which would be more valuable than a female because of breeding purposes.

If the common person is too poor to afford a female goat then a turtledove or a pigeon can be used (Leviticus 5:7). And, in extreme cases of poverty about 3 ½ pounds of fine flour can be used in place of the birds (Leviticus 5:11-13). These alternatives were made available because the sin offering was a requirement and the Law did not discriminate against the different classes. Everyone had an opportunity to bring the required sin offering.

The person would bring their goat to the tabernacle where a priest would assist them. By the altar that sat in front of the tabernacle the person bringing the sin offering would lay their hand on the head of their goat as a sign of identification with the goat that was then slaughtered by the altar.

Leviticus 5:1-6, the verses that immediately follow, gives examples of three sins that would require the presentation of the sin offering just described:

  1. Not speaking up when they hear false charges made publicly concerning something that they personally saw or know about.
  2. Touching something unclean
  3. Thoughtlessly takes an oath
The person would confess these sins as they laid their hand on the offering.

Something to Ponder??

“The fact that David led the dances in the presence of God is no sanction for faithful Christians to occupy seats in the public theater. For David did not twist his limbs about in obscene movements. He did not depict in his dancing the story of Grecian lust.” – Cyprian, 250 AD

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information
Hotam (Hb) – Signet Ring (Eng) – hotam is the Hebrew word that means "affix a seal" and "seal shut." Hotam is translated into English as "seal" or "signet ring." A seal was a small cylinder stone with an engraving that served as a personal impression. A signet ring was a ring with an engraving in the stone of the ring. To make a mark in clay (or, wax) the seal would be rolled over the clay and the signet ring would be pressed into the clay.  

Although nothing has been confirmed as having come from Solomon’s Temple, the biblical and historical description of Solomon’s temple parallel the temple of ‘Ain Dara found in northern Syria. The ‘Ain Dara Temple matches Solomon’s Temple in age, size, plan and decoration. Archaeologist John Monson identifies 30 architectural elements that match the Jerusalem Temple including:

  • Large artificial platforms built on the highest point of the city
  • Tripartite plans : entry porch supported by two columns, a main sanctuary, an elevated Holy of Holies
  • Flanked on three of the four sides with multistoried rooms and chambers for meetings, storage and various other functions.
  • Every surface interior and exterior carved with lions, cherubim, floral patterns, geometric patterns
  • The ‘Ain Dara temple was built around 1300 BC and continued in use unto 740. Solomon’s Temple was built around 960 and continued in use until 586 BC.

Bottom line: The existence of the ‘Ain Dara temple as it is seen today proves that the Biblical description of Solomon’s Temple is not fantasy, impossible or a literary invention by a later generation.
