In the bible a holocaust refers to a burnt offering. In the Old Testament the people are obliged to make offerings to Go. These often took the form of the burning of an animal which had been killed for the occasion. They also took the form of burning the first harvest of a crop. Offering something meant it was dedicated to God, and so removed from human use by burning.
