Discussion for Leviticus 16

  • A. Matthews
    yes there was a rope and also bells attached to him because our God is so Holy the priest couldn't go into the Holy of Holies with sin in him or he would die.If the bell stopped ringing the people would know he's dead,and pull him out by the rope.
  • Carroll macintosh
    i hope i am right but this is where he went for atonmenment yon kippur for the sins of the nation no I do not think he had bells at the bottem of his robe but please check.
  • Dexter crain
    Was there or was there not a rope attached to the priest when he went into the holy of holies ?
    Also did he wear bells at the bottom of his tunic ?

    22 And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness. As far as the East is from the West so has He forgiven us of all our sins.
  • Biblefan
    the ceremony of killing one goat and freeing another maybe was done to instill the sense that sometimes its the luck of the draw that determines whether you live or die -
  • Steve sammet for verse 8
    I can understand the belief of the azazel representing both Christ and satan. Christ carries our sins. Our sins are forgiven as far as the east is from the west etc, etc. However, I personally believe the azazel represents satan for several reasons. These points from my studies. 1 Why the need for lots if both goats represent Jesus Christ? 2 Premosaic, azazel meant evil personal being. 3 Jewish tradition azazel meant demon. 4 Arabs also believed azazel meant demon. 5 Person who led azazel became unclean and needed to wash before entering camp. 6 satan is banished to the wilderness, after millennium and after final release. demons are discussed in relation to wilderness desert. 7 satan is ultimately responsible for all sin. These are some reasons off the top of my head. Sincerely, Steve
