The Fellowship Offering was an act of thankfulness and worship. Certain portions of the animal were burned on the altar as a sacrifice to the Lord (chpt 3). The person and his family then ate the meat before the Lord in the area of the tabernacle. The Priest was to have gthe breast and the right thigh of the animal as his share (7:31-34)

The Sin Offering was, in most instances, for unintentional sins: for priest, leader, individuals, and the assembly of people.

The Guilt Offering is similar to the sin offering but also includes purposeful sins. When something had been deceitfully taken, restitution had to be made.

In the Latter two sacrifices, after pouring of the blood, the fat was burned on the altar. The hide, the head, and the intestines were burned outside the camp in a clean place (4:8-12). The meat of the animal was then given to the priest ot eat in the area of the tabernacle (6:24-30). If, however, the sacrifice was for a priest (4:3-12) or for the entire community (vv 13-21) the flesh of the animal was completely burned outside the camp.

Of the sacrifices at the tabernacle, only the fellowship offering could be eaten by the layperson who brought it. Leviticus 7:28-38 gives the regulations about what part of the fellowship offering belongs to the priest.

The Burnt Offering was to be made each morning and each evening on behalf of the entire people and was to be left burning at all times. An individual could also present a burnt offering. Not in 1:4 that the offering made atonement for the person who brought it. This was the only offering that was entirely burned.

The Grain Offering was offered as a present to the lord it was cultivated grain, made without yeast; after the “memorial portion” was removed and burned, the rest was given to the priest to eat.
