I’m reading a Jewish commentary (Etz Hayyim) that prints Jer 7:21-26 after the first eight chapters of Leviticus.
As a refresher, Leviticus 1-8 covers sacrifices that are to be made and rituals that are to be followed, and finishes with the consecration of Aaron and his sons as priests, noting that this was in accordance with what God commanded.
But, hold on, the selection from Jer has God saying that he never commanded Israel about offerings or sacrifice.
This contradiction or apparent contradiction even caused a lot of bewilderment among Jewish scholars, until one of them came up with tentative solution to these apparently conflicting sections of scripture.
Has anyone studied this issue in detail so as to provide some enlightenment about it here?
