Burnt offering
Burnt Offering: Hebrew olah; i.e., "ascending," the whole being consumed by fire, and regarded as ascending to God while being consumed. Part of every offering was burnt in the sacred fire, but this was wholly burnt, a "whole burnt offering." It was the most frequent form of sacrifice, and apparently the only one mentioned in the book of Genesis. Such were the sacrifices offered by Abel (Genesis 4:3,4) here called minhah; i.e., "a gift"), Noah (Genesis 8:20) Abraham (Genesis 22:2,7,8,13) and by the Hebrews in Egypt (Exodus 10:25) The law of Moses afterwards prescribed the occasions and the manner in which burnt sacrifices were to be offered. There were "the continual burnt offering" (Exodus 29:38-42; Leviticus 6:9-13) "the burnt offering of every sabbath," which was double the daily one (Numbers 28:9,10) "the burnt offering of every month" (Numbers 28:11-15) the offerings at the Passover (Numbers 28:19-23) at Pentecost (Leviticus 23:16) the feast of Trumpets (Leviticus 23:23-25) and on the day of Atonement (Leviticus 16:1)ff On other occasions special sacrifices were offered, as at the consecration of Aaron (Exodus 29:1)ff and the dedication of the temple (1 Kings 8:5,62-64) Free-will burnt offerings were also permitted (Leviticus 1:13) and were offered at the accession of Solomon to the throne (1 Chronicles 29:21) and at the reformation brought about by Hezekiah (2 Chronicles 29:31-35) These offerings signified the complete dedication of the offerers unto God. This is referred to in (Romans 12:1)
