Numbers 28.29 – One-tenth of an ephah of fine flour and oil for the seven lambs

In Numbers 28.27, the Lord had told Israel that on the day of the firstfruits, they were to offer seven lambs in their first year, and He continued to say,

“…with their grain offering of fine flour mixed with oil: three-tenths of an ephah for each bull, two-tenths for the one ram, and one-tenth for each of the seven lambs…” (Numbers 28.28, 29).

He added in verse 31,

“Be sure they are without blemish. You shall present them with their drink offerings, besides the regular burnt offering with its grain offering” (Numbers 28.31).

Undoubtedly, they did not understand fully the significance of these seven lambs, except for the fact that the Lord said to offer them.

As we have observed before, this all represented the Lamb of God, Jesus of Nazareth. Since He is the Son of God and the Savior of the world, the Israelites had to make sure that they got all this right that they might honor the Son and show the world the significance of the lamb sacrifice.
