The Historic Truth About The Crucifixion - The witness of the animal sacrifices of the Old Testament

Page 10 of 15: The witness of the animal sacrifices of the Old Testament

All the animal sacrifices in the Old Testament, is used for the atonement of sins, as mentioned in the book of Leviticus: “For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the alter to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul.” (Leviticus 17:11)

And in the book of Hebrews we read “And according to the law almost all things are purified with blood and without shedding of blood there is no remission” (Heb 9:22) For this reason we see that Christians, Muslims, and Jews believe in the principle of sacrifices and atonement. Muslims celebrate the Adhha Holiday; the Jews celebrate the Passover by sacrificing blood sacrifices for the atonement of their sins, and the Christians believe in the death of Christ as “The lamb of God” who is the great and final sacrifice for the atonement of the sins of the world. The death of Christ and His atoning sacrifice gave meaning and reason to be for all the other sacrifices. All the other feasts and holidays of sacrifices are mere symbols and patterns of the real sacrifice, which Christ presented on the cross. Otherwise, all other sacrifices are irrelevant and meaningless
