Approach: Understanding the concept of atonement with a focus on the Old Testament.

Hermeneutic objective: Recognizing that the word atonement is only seen in the Old Testament, observe what God says about blood in the process of atonement.

Theological objective: Representing the life of an animal, blood is the prescribed method of paying the price for one's soul for disobeying God in thought and / or action. It places an emphasis on the severity of sin in God's eyes and the significant cost of disobedience in our eyes.
