McCheyne’s Bible Reading Plan: Lev 16, Ps 19, Pr 30, 1 Tim 1
And Aaron shall lay both his hands on the head of the live goat, and confess over it all the iniquities of the people of Israel, and all their transgressions, all their sins. And he shall put them on the head of the goat and send it away into the wilderness by the hand of a man who is in readiness. The goat shall bear all their iniquities on itself to a remote area, and he shall let the goat go free in the wilderness. (Lev 16:21-22)
This goat foreshadows one function of Jesus, the carrying away of our sin from God’s dwelling place, while the people get to remain in the camp. An asesome picture.
