Jesus Christ and Atonement Today Part 1

23 It was necessary, then, for the copies of the heavenly things to be purified with these sacrifices, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. 24 For Christ did not enter a sanctuary made with human hands that was only a copy of the true one; he entered heaven itself, now to appear for us in God’s presence. 25 Nor did he enter heaven to offer himself again and again, the way the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood that is not his own. 26 Otherwise Christ would have had to suffer many times since the creation of the world. But he has appeared once for all at the culmination of the ages to do away with sin by the sacrifice of himself. 27 Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, 28 so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him. (Hebrews 9:23-28)

G’day! Today we continue to look together at Jesus Christ, the Day of Atonement of Leviticus and the Atonement that He alone offers. We know that the Day of Atonement was held once a year. Atonement as achieved by Jesus Christ, was the unique, the one and only, unrepeatable, Day of Calvary which we celebrate at Easter. It is what we remember when taking the Holy Communion. That is why the bread and wine only symbolize Jesus’ body and blood. If it were more than symbolic, then it would be like a repeat of His death each time. Certainly untenable. There is only one day of Calvary and on that historical day, Jesus’ death was the once and for all atoning and substitutionary sacrifice, which makes amends to God for the sins of the world. Jesus alone, gives life and offers life to the full – a life borne from grace and not from Law. Jesus ushered in the New Covenant, which we looked at recently.

Come on in and let us look together at what we can learn about Jesus Christ and the Atonement that He alone offers. Together we explore questions such as: What is sin? What is atonement and why is it necessary? How is Jesus Christ the atonement required by God? How was the ancient Day of Atonement looking ahead?
