Commentary: Unintentionally sinning also requires a sacrifice; different sacrifice for different groups of people. Jesus would eventually become the ultimate sacrifice.

Chapter 6 provides instructions on personal restitution and instructions to the priests for burnt offerings, grain offerings, and sin offerings.
Focus Verses: 5:1 What does this tell us about how we are to behave today? For what are we responsible?
