Approach: An introduction to the Old Testament's Day of Atonement.

Hermeneutic objective: Learning about the details of the Day of Atonement and observing how Jesus is associated with it.

Theological objective: The Day of Atonement helps us understand what Jesus did in accordance to God’s prescribed method of atoning for sin.

Jesus Christ was the High Priest and mediator of the New Covenant.

Jesus Christ, the High Priest, provided His own blood at the place of propitiation.

Jesus Christ, not only provided His own blood, but was also the place of propitiation.

It is in this context that Jesus Christ literally fulfilled the Law of Moses.

"Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished" (Matt 5:17-18, LSB).
