Abstract

This study investigates the priestly tradition in the Pentateuch to determine the sequence in which the rites of the daily service were performed, how they functioned in relation to each other, and what God intended to accomplish through each rite as well as the whole service. The first chapter, which spells out the scope of the thesis, is followed by a reconstruction of the order of the service in chapter two. The third chapter examines the institution, agents, acts, materials, times, locations, and the theological purpose of each part of the service. The final chapter draws conclusions about the purpose of the entire service, through which the LORD purifies, sanctifies, accepts, and blesses his people as he dwells in their midst. The thesis concludes that the priestly tradition in the Pentateuch presupposes an order in which each ritual act contributes to the purpose of the whole daily divine service.
