Study 21 From The Book of Numbers is: Numbers 28 and 29. Reviews of Israel’s
1.      Distinguish between the daily sacrifice throughout the year offered every morning and evening (28: 3-8) and the additional sacrifices: (a) on the Sabbath (28:9, 10); (b) at the new moon each month (28:11-15); (c) throughout the feast of unleavened bread and at the 
Passover itself (28:17-25, see Note below); (d) at the Feast of Weeks (28:26-31); (e) at the blowing of trumpets (29:1-6); (f) on the Day of Atonement (29:7-11); (g) at the Feast of Tabernacles (29:12-38).
2.     It was easy for these sacrifices to become mere ritual-so much so that later prophets strongly condemned their misuse. Am. 5:21-24 and Is. 1:11-18 give a clue as to the purpose of these offerings and to God’s real requirements in and through them. Cf. Also Heb. 10:1-18.
Note. 28:24. The meaning is the sacrifices prescribed above in verses 19-22 are to be offered daily throughout the feast.
