Sinning Unwittingly

Chapter 4 of Leviticus deals entirely with sin-offerings: those brought by a person who incurs guilt unwittingly (vv. 2, 27-35); by the high priest who has incurred guilt “so that blame falls upon the people” (vv. 3-12); in the name of the entire community when it incurs guilt unwittingly (13-21); and by a leader (chieftain) who incurs guilt (22-26). All the sins referred to here involve guilt being incurred unwittingly and are sins regarding which the Torah commands the sinner to bring a sin offering.
