Leviticus 6:25 Meaning and Commentary

Leviticus 6:25

Speak unto Aaron, and to his sons, saying, this [is] the
law of the sin [offering]
Or the rules to be observed concerning that, besides what had been already delivered in ( Leviticus 4:1-35 ) :

in the place where the burnt offering is killed shall the sin
[offering] be killed before the Lord;
and that was on the north side of the altar, see ( Leviticus 1:11 ) and so Aben Ezra and Ben Gersom observe, that the place of slaying every sin offering was the north; and some have observed that Mount Calvary, where our Lord was crucified, lay pretty much to the north of Jerusalem, see ( Psalms 48:2 ) :

it is most holy;
sacred to the Lord, offered up to him, and accepted by him, and typical of the most pure and holy sacrifice of Christ, who was made sin, and an offering for sin, in the room and stead of his people.

Leviticus 6:25 In-Context

23 Every grain offering of a priest shall be burned completely; it must not be eaten.”
24 The LORD said to Moses,
25 “Say to Aaron and his sons: ‘These are the regulations for the sin offering: The sin offering is to be slaughtered before the LORD in the place the burnt offering is slaughtered; it is most holy.
26 The priest who offers it shall eat it; it is to be eaten in the sanctuary area, in the courtyard of the tent of meeting.
27 Whatever touches any of the flesh will become holy, and if any of the blood is spattered on a garment, you must wash it in the sanctuary area.
