Sacrifices and the 10 +1 Sequence

 


God applied the 10+1 sequence to a variety of sacrifices that He commanded Israel to observe. In these sacrifices, God called a number of animals to be offered as a burnt sacrifice. Then He added one more to the number. This +1 part was usually a goat for the sin offering. For example, in Numbers 28:11-15, God called for a sacrifice to made at the beginning each month.


11 And in the beginnings of your months ye shall offer a burnt offering unto the LORD; two young bullocks, and one ram, seven lambs of the first year without spot;
12 And three tenth deals of flour for a meat offering, mingled with oil, for one bullock; and two tenth deals of flour for a meat offering, mingled with oil, for one ram;
13 And a several tenth deal of flour mingled with oil for a meat offering unto one lamb; for a burnt offering of a sweet savour, a sacrifice made by fire unto the LORD.
14 And their drink offerings shall be half an hin of wine unto a bullock, and the third part of an hin unto a ram, and a fourth part of an hin unto a lamb: this is the burnt offering of every month throughout the months of the year."

10 Animals

This is an example of the 10 animals for the first of the month sacrifice that God called for.

Now God added One more animal to be sacrifice apart from these 10. This is the +1 animal connected to this sacrifice. in Numbers 28:15, the Bible states:


"15
And one kid of the goats for a sin offering unto the LORD shall be offered, beside the continual burnt offering, and his drink offering.

 

The +1 goat for the sin offering is not counted with the other animals. The +1 sin offering does not have a drink and meat offering associated with it. Again, 10 animals were to be sacrificed + 1 (goat for sin offering). There are many Biblical examples of this in the Bible, where the +1 sin offering is separated (10+1).
