What's the difference between guilt, burnt and guilt/sin offerings (which I understand are two different things- but where does the burnt offering fit in... is it just a general term because the sacrifices were literally burnt)?all sin "korban/sacrifice" were eaten by the Priest ..
the Priest was a sort of proxy that took the sin within him ..
and then was cleansed ..
Sin offering = Korban Chatat or Hataat
(eaten by the Kohanim)
meaning once sacrificed the Jewish Priests eats it ..
guilt offering = Korban Olah
(consumed entirely by the fire of the Mizbayach)
meaning NO ONE ate the sacrifice ..
peace offering = Korban Shelamim
(eaten by the person who brings the sacrifice)
so you make a personal seder ..
thanksgiving offering = korban Todah .. example: Korban Pesach
meaning you make a seder for family and usually invite a guest/s ..
