In my reading this AM, I noticed that in the Peace offerings, unlike the Sin and Trespass-offerings, the offerer could eat much of the meat of the offering and offer Leavened bread. To my knowledge, this is the only offering that allowed leavened bread. Additionally, the free-will offering permitted an imperfect animal as well as leavened bread. (Lev. 22:23) What is the significance of leavened bread? And the flawed animal? My guess is that it has something to do with the nature of the offering. The Peace offering was not for forgiveness (atonement) but for praise, votive offerings to fulfill a vow, and free-will offerings. Any ideas?
