1 Likewise this is the law of the trespass offering: it is most holy. 2 In the place where they kill the burnt offering shall they kill the trespass offering: and the blood thereof shall he sprinkle round about upon the altar. 3 And he shall offer of it all the fat thereof; the rump, and the fat that covereth the inwards, 4 And the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, which is by the flanks, and the caul that is above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall he take away: 5 And the priest shall burn them upon the altar for an offering made by fire unto the LORD: it is a trespass offering. 6 Every male among the priests shall eat thereof: it shall be eaten in the holy place: it is most holy. 7 As the sin offering is, so is the trespass offering: there is one law for them: the priest that maketh atonement therewith shall have it. 8 And the priest that offereth any man's burnt offering, even the priest shall have to himself the skin of the burnt offering which he hath offered. 9 And all the meat offering that is baken in the oven, and all that is dressed in the fryingpan, and in the pan, shall be the priest's that offereth it. 10 And every meat offering, mingled with oil, and dry, shall all the sons of Aaron have, one as much as another. 11 And this is the law of the sacrifice of peace offerings, which he shall offer unto the LORD. 12 If he offer it for a thanksgiving, then he shall offer with the sacrifice of thanksgiving unleavened cakes mingled with oil, and unleavened wafers anointed with oil, and cakes mingled with oil, of fine flour, fried. 13 Besides the cakes, he shall offer for his offering leavened bread with the sacrifice of thanksgiving of his peace offerings. 14 And of it he shall offer one out of the whole oblation for an heave offering unto the LORD, and it shall be the priest's that sprinkleth the blood of the peace offerings. 15 And the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings for thanksgiving shall be eaten the same day that it is offered; he shall not leave any of it until the morning. 16 But if the sacrifice of his offering be a vow, or a voluntary offering, it shall be eaten the same day that he offereth his sacrifice: and on the morrow also the remainder of it shall be eaten: 17 But the remainder of the flesh of the sacrifice on the third day shall be burnt with fire. 18 And if any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings be eaten at all on the third day, it shall not be accepted, neither shall it be imputed unto him that offereth it: it shall be an abomination, and the soul that eateth of it shall bear his iniquity. 19 And the flesh that toucheth any unclean thing shall not be eaten; it shall be burnt with fire: and as for the flesh, all that be clean shall eat thereof. 20 But the soul that eateth of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace offerings, that pertain unto the LORD, having his uncleanness upon him, even that soul shall be cut off from his people. 21 Moreover the soul that shall touch any unclean thing, as the uncleanness of man, or any unclean beast, or any abominable unclean thing, and eat of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace offerings, which pertain unto the LORD, even that soul shall be cut off from his people. 22 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 23 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, Ye shall eat no manner of fat, of ox, or of sheep, or of goat. 24 And the fat of the beast that dieth of itself, and the fat of that which is torn with beasts, may be used in any other use: but ye shall in no wise eat of it. 25 For whosoever eateth the fat of the beast, of which men offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD, even the soul that eateth it shall be cut off from his people. 26 Moreover ye shall eat no manner of blood, whether it be of fowl or of beast, in any of your dwellings. 27 Whatsoever soul it be that eateth any manner of blood, even that soul shall be cut off from his people. 28 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 29 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, He that offereth the sacrifice of his peace offerings unto the LORD shall bring his oblation unto the LORD of the sacrifice of his peace offerings. 30 His own hands shall bring the offerings of the LORD made by fire, the fat with the breast, it shall he bring, that the breast may be waved for a wave offering before the LORD. 31 And the priest shall burn the fat upon the altar: but the breast shall be Aaron's and his sons'. 32 And the right shoulder shall ye give unto the priest for an heave offering of the sacrifices of your peace offerings. 33 He among the sons of Aaron, that offereth the blood of the peace offerings, and the fat, shall have the right shoulder for his part. 34 For the wave breast and the heave shoulder have I taken of the children of Israel from off the sacrifices of their peace offerings, and have given them unto Aaron the priest and unto his sons by a statute for ever from among the children of Israel. 35 This is the portion of the anointing of Aaron, and of the anointing of his sons, out of the offerings of the LORD made by fire, in the day when he presented them to minister unto the LORD in the priest's office; 36 Which the LORD commanded to be given them of the children of Israel, in the day that he anointed them, by a statute for ever throughout their generations. 37 This is the law of the burnt offering, of the meat offering, and of the sin offering, and of the trespass offering, and of the consecrations, and of the sacrifice of the peace offerings; 38 Which the LORD commanded Moses in mount Sinai, in the day that he commanded the children of Israel to offer their oblations unto the LORD, in the wilderness of Sinai.

1 Raymond Huerta = "The Hebrew says, only "the flesh." The context implies that what is meant is the flesh of the communion sacrifice that has not been defiled by contact with something unclean. Alter, Robert. "Leviticus Chapter 7." The Five Books of Moses: A Translation with Commentary. New York: W.W. Norton, 2004. Print."
2 Raymond Huerta = "This instruction is an indication that the van on ingesting blood is in no way restricted to animals sacrificed in the cult but is comprehensively binding on the Israelites wherever they dwell. "
3 Yaakov ben Chaim Tzvi = "Drinking blood brings upon oneself the most severe punishment in Judaism, the punishment of "Kares". Kares is a spiritual separation from God and the nation of Israel. Unlike Christianity which claims drinking the blood of Jesus atones for sin, the Hebrew scriptures are crystal clear that one who drinks blood is no longer a member of the nation of Israel and loses his communal status. God abhors this pagan practice and commanded the Jewish nation to drain and salt all meat thereby removing most of the blood from the food we consume. This is where the term "Kosher Salt" comes from."
4 Sarah R = "A few notes: First, Christians believe that Jesus fulfilled the law (Mt 5:17; Ro 10:4), and therefore we are no longer held to it. That said, it would be rather creepy if we were sitting around drinking blood. I heard that Satan-worshipers do that in their ceremonies, but Christians, just to be clear, do not. Secondly, the issue of "drinking the blood of Jesus" refers to the Communion celebration. This is one of the points upon which Catholic and Protestant Christians differ. The Catholic church believes in what is called "transubstantiation," meaning that in the taking of the bread and wine at communion the elements actually become the body and blood of Jesus. Protestant churches, on the other hand, believe that the bread and wine (or juice, as is more commonly used in Protestant churches) are only symbols of Jesus' sacrifice of His body and blood. My understanding is that there are some hard core Catholics who do believe the bread and wine miraculously are actually transformed, but that most Catholics believe that there is a "real presence" of Jesus in the bread and wine, as opposed to actual flesh and blood. I've taken communion at a Catholic church before while attending with family, and I can attest that it certainly doesn't taste like anything other than thin communion wafers and cheap wine, no offense meant to my Catholic brothers and sisters.  Third, it is not the "drinking of Jesus' blood" that atones for sin anyway, but rather the atoning death of Jesus upon the cross, then rising again to life. He bore our sins on Him like the Passover lamb, and those who believe in Him and repent of sins shall be saved.But again, this is a rather moot point, as we are no longer held to the Mosaic law. For more info on communion, see Mt 26:28, Jn 6:52-53, and 1 Cor 11:27."

6 Sarah R = "That's a good point, Yaakov, about Gentile believers not being held to the law anyway. Contributes to my argument that there is then no conflict here with Christian communion regardless. That was a big contention in the early church, as Jesus's disciples and all the first believers were Jewish and when Gentiles started coming to faith in Christ they had to decide if the Gentiles had to convert to Judaism or not. It was decided no, but there were a lot of debates about it. This is all recorded in Acts and in Paul's letters as well.I noted the difference between Catholic and Protestant thinking on this issue. Since you mentioned it, I will explain that I'm not particularly aligned with a specific denomination myself. I've been to many different denominational churches. As long as they preach the gospel and believe in the Bible as the Word of God I'm pretty happy. Most of the rest is just details. We should be careful though what we label "Christian". Often times groups are included in that label that aren't really Christian churches. The Unitarian Universalist church, for example, doesn't even claim to be Christian, as clear from their website and statement of beliefs. Oh and praise God that our Savior was not merely a man, but God Himself come down!! Otherwise you are quite right, faith in a mere man to save would be faith in vain (1 Corinthians 15:13-23)."
7 angela h = "The idea here in Matthew is not that being tempted is sin. It is when we let those temptations gestate, rather than saying "Hey this is against what God wants" and then turning from it....that is when it is sin. See James chapter 1https://www.deily.org/bible/kjv/james/1 "
