Expiation: Greek, Hilasmos. Refering to an expiatory sacrifice of atonement that takes away sins. ( Num 5:8; Ezek 44;27; 2 Mac 3:33 )

Five Types of Sacrifice

Holocaust (Whole Burnt Offering). Lv. 1:1-17. An unblemished male animal (not a wild animal, but one you had to put money and work into) or a bird.

Later was added the gift (minah) of cereal, flour mixed with oil and wine. Lv 2:1-16. Offered for the sin of the offender. Only a small portion was burnt. The majority went for support of the priests.

Peace offering or Communion sacrifice. Lv 3:1-17. Emphasizes the union between God, who receives a small part that is burnt, and the donor, who also receives the major part. The victim could be male or female. It could not be a bird, which would be too small to share with God and the family of the donor.

Sin offering (freeing from the sin offering) hattat, Lv. 4:1-5:13. Something sacred has been violated and reparation needs to be made. The dignity of the person making the offering determines the animal. A bull is needed for a priest or the whole community. A goat can serve for a lay offender. A key part of this ceremony is the sprinkling of the victims blood on the altar. If the offence has been committed by a priest or the whole community, blood must also be sprinkled on the altar of incense in the holy part of the temple and on the curtain of the holy of holies. The fat is burnt. The priests get the rest if it was an offering for the sin of an individual. The guilty person gets nothing. However, if it was offered for the sin of the whole community, the other portion was thrown on the refuse heap.

Guilt offering reparation for an offence that requires some kind of restitution. It pays God back for something we should have given or done.

( Romans 12:1-2 ) Present Your Bodies as a Living Sacrifice

An ascending spiritual sacrifice towards God; discerning the divine will.
Catechism of The Catholic Church, ( CCC ) Paragraph 2031 The moral life is spiritual worship. We “present [our] bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God,”73 within the Body of Christ that we form and in communion with the offering of his Eucharist. In the liturgy and the celebration of the sacraments, prayer and teaching are conjoined with the grace of Christ to enlighten and nourish Christian activity. As does the whole of the Christian life, the moral life finds its source and summit in the Eucharistic sacrifice.Moral Life
