    The priests played a serious role in representing the people before Jehovah God and offering sacrifices in their behalf. The greater High Priest, Jesus Christ, has a similar role today.

    I heard Christ died for our sins when I was desperate. 2 people were sent to me and showed me. I get it ...I will never die and live happily everafter. His death burial and resurection was to save us from the wages of sin by actually supernaturally forging those that get it into one body, the body of Christ while he was in hell.
  • Melyssa
    Makes you think, how much blood had to be spilled before Jesus died on the cross for us.
  • BSP
    Verses 2-4~The people were to give a sacrifice if they sinned because of ignorance. We are sinners and we should pray to Jehovah God for forgiveness and help when we sin.
  • Stephen
