[Notes: Did you note the symmetry? For seven days they offer two rams (goats),and seven male lambs (sheep rams) On the first day they offer THIRTEEN (!!!) bulls but this number reduces by one each day. On the eighth day they offer just one bull, one ram and the seven male sheep. Oh yes and all eight days they offer one male goat as a sin offering. All this meat is not for eating but for the Lord. It is an extravagant way of showing their intention to bless the Lord. Burning on the bronze altar must have carried on almost continually with this number of beasts. Tabernacles celebrates the time in the desert that the nation lived in tents on the journey to the Promised Land.]
