Abstract

KIM, Gyung-Yul  and  VENTER, Pieter M.. The disposal of the hattat flesh. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2013, vol.69, n.1, pp.1-10. ISSN 2072-8050.

This article investigates the criteria for the disposal of the sin offering in the book of Leviticus, the function of the different ways of disposal and the meaning of the disposal with regard to Leviticus 10:17. It is indicated that this sacrifice is intended to eliminate the offerer's sin and the sanctuary's impurity. The eaten hattat offering retains minor contamination by human sin or impurity, whilst the burnt hattat offering is contaminated by more severe and major sins and impurities, in appropriation with either the offerer's socio-religious status or the gravity of the sin.
