In order for a priest to serve God, his sins had to be forgiven. Aaron is consecrated. The oil symbolizes the anointing of God and them he offers the sin sacrifices. Aaron and his son put their hands on the head of a bull to symbolize the transfer of their sins to the ox. The ox had his throat slit so it symbolizes that the ox is dying for their sins.
The ram was used as a burnt offering unto God. The other rams blood was used to consecrate Aaron and his son. The priest could eat that portion of the ram.
In the New Testament Atonement means becoming one with God. This was only possible with Jesus Christ. The blood of the goats and bulls could cover their sins but not put them away. These things were all a testimony of Jesus Christ our great sacrifice.
What ever wasn’t eaten was to be burned in the fire.
This is purpose if the tabernacle. This is the place where God would meet and speak with them.
