Considering the size of the Tabernacle complex (150 ft. x 75 ft.), how were the priests able to handle the volume of daily sacrifices likely for a congregation of approximately one million? Exodus 38:25-26 indicates that the population of Israel, not including women, children and the elderly, was 603,550. The total number of Levites counted was 8585 in Numbers 4:48, and only a relatively small number of these were eligible to perform sacrifices. How did they manage to handle this enormous task?
Exodus 27:9 - 15
ESV - 9 You shall make the court of the tabernacle. On the south side the court shall have hangings of fine twined linen a hundred cubits long for one side. 10 Its twenty pillars and their twenty bases shall be of bronze, but the hooks of the pillars and their fillets shall be of silver.

I take note of you reasoning and have considereded it when pondering this question. However, I also note that in scripture when God performs a mircle ( and i believe your characterization would demand miracle status) scripture always clearly expresses it as such. There is no such indication in any of the tabernacle passages, leading me to believe that there was no supernatural agency involved in the sacrifices except as clearly described in the ordination ceremonies. Your thoughts?
