    Hi Audrey, I agree that the blood of lambs and goats could not wash the sins of the Jews or our sins away, but the Blood of Christ does! FREE from sin! Now serve Him in righteousness, HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, not my tears. Holy to the LORD!

    Audrey; You may have been misinformed about forgiveness in the Law and the Prophets. See Leviticus 4:20,26,31; 5:10,13; 6:7; 19:22; Numbers 14:19;15:26. Adam and Eve were forgiven and released to live out the rest of their lives and propagate the whole human race because of the Word of God that Christ would come in the flesh and undo the works of the devil and the power of sin; so RECONCILING man.

    Hi Randy, The Old Covenant did not forgive sin nor could it. The Old covenant is a foreshadow of Christ. Everything is about Jesus. Jesus was the Passover lamb, Jesus was the final sacrifice. The blood of lambs and goats could not wash the sins of the Jews or our sins away. From the priests offering the lamb up as a sacrifice, foreshadows the Priests in the NT offering up Jesus to be sacrificed.
