Commentary: Unintentionally sinning also requires a sacrifice; different sacrifice for different groups of people.  Jesus would eventually become the ultimate sacrifice.  Trespassing, invading the rights of others - man or God - also requires a sacrifice.  Ignorance of law was no excuse for not providing an offering.  Once aware of the sin, repentance is expected.  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?
