It expands upon the laws of the priest which set him apart from the rest of the community, as well as those that apply only to the High Priest. It adds details regarding animals which may be brought for the service of God. It enumerates the holidays additional, non-sacrificial Temple rites. Finally, it ends with one of the few narrative passages of the book, telling the story of the blasphemer.
