    "..and the priest shall make an atonement for him for his sin which he hath sinned, and it shall be forgiven him." The Anointed Mediator and Minister of our holy things, is He who is accepted and fit to appear before God on our behalf. The "Making Atonement" meant that the prescribed duties being done by faith, were accepted at the hand of the Mediator for the sins of the worshiper to be covered.
  • A disciple
    "..if a soul sin, and hear the voice of swearing, and is a witness, whether he hath seen or known..or if a soul touch any unclean thing..or if a soul swear, pronouncing with his lips to do evil, or to do good, whatsoever it be that a man shall pronounce with an oath.." What does a man do in his body, or in his mind, or what he hears or speaks, that it is not out of his soul doing it?

    In the O.T. the only way the Israelite's were able to atone for their sins was through the priest slaying a perfect animal from the sinners flock; and a poor man , it might be a dove or a pigeon. Today, the only way we can be saved is through the blood of Jesus our LORD and SAVIOR in baptism. We have to confess all of our sins to Jesus Christ and live God's way not the worlds way.
