Would it be correct to compare sacrifices in the Bible books to Leviticus and Numbers to a typical meal( more specifically a meal in Western culture)?
For example, Let's analyze Numbers 28.
Numbers 28 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Laws for Offerings
1Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2 “Command the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘You shall [a]be careful to present My offering, My food for My offerings by fire, of a soothing aroma to Me, at their appointed time.’ 3 You shall say to them, ‘This is the offering by fire which you shall offer to the Lord:
(Animal sacrifice offering)two male lambs one year old without defect as a continual burnt offering every day. 4 You shall offer the one lamb in the morning and the other lamb you shall offer [b]at twilight;
(Grain offering)5 also a tenth of an ephah of fine flour for a grain offering,
(Drink offering)mixed with a fourth of a hin of beaten oil. 6 It is a continual burnt offering which was ordained in Mount Sinai as a soothing aroma, an offering by fire to the Lord. 7 Then the drink offering with it shall be a fourth of a hin for each lamb, in the holy place you shall pour out a drink offering of strong drink to the Lord. 8 The other lamb you shall offer [c]at twilight; as the grain offering of the morning and as its drink offering, you shall offer it, an offering by fire, a soothing aroma to the Lord.
Modern meal(specifically Western culture) corresponds to Old Testament Biblical Sacrifice offerings
Main course (i.e., Steak, chicken, etc.) corresponds to Animal sacrifice offering of the Old Testament (i.e., bulls, rams, lambs, goats, etc. )
Carbs and vegetables ( i.e., rice, potatoes, beans, etc.) corresponds to Grain offering of the Old Testament (i.e., fine flour, bread, cake, etc. )
Liquid to drink ( i.e., water, wine, juice, etc.) corresponds to Drink offering of the Old Testament (i.e., oil and/or wine )
1) Would be correct to say that all 3 types of offerings( Animal Sacrifice offering, grain offering & drink offering) need to be offered in holistic manner ( in other words, all 3 types of offerings have to be viewed as being offered as a whole, and would Not make sense if only viewed individually)?
2) Would the above comparison with a typical Western meal be some what accurate?
