The Sharia of Moses in the TORA
Part 2 - The 365 Prohibitions of the Tora
146 - EATING THE MEAT OF A BURNT OFFERING
In the ninth chapter of Sanhedrin, we read: “If he has deliberately committed sacrilege, Rabbi Judah says: he is liable to death by the hand of Heaven, but the sages say: He is liable only to whipping”; and the sages quote in support of their view: “They shall therefore keep My ordinance, lest they bear sin for it and die thereby,* implying that they die thereby** but not for sacrilege.”***
** That is, an unclean priest who eats of a clean heave offering is liable to death by the hand of Heaven (see Neg. Comm. 136), but a person who commits sacrilege is punishable by whipping only.
*** Sanh. 84a (Sonc. ed. p. 556)
The prohibition against committing any kind of sacrilege applies to holy things pertaining either to the Altar or to the Temple treasury.*
