Guilt and Goats

Whatever else "The atonement" may connote, we must all agree that Christ's death must fulfill the types and shadows of the Old Testament sacrifices.

If you can't do that, then your models of atonement (love, hugs, just cleaning me) fail.


  1. What OT sacrifices specifically did Christ fulfill? Christ is called the Lamb of God, not the Goat of God, or the Dove of God.

  2. Goat alliterated with Guilt, so I had to go with that.

  3. Christ fulfilled all sacrifices--or rather, the sacrificial system en toto. If there is a sacrifice he didn't fulfill, then it is binding on the covenant people today.
