The Day of Atonement is considered by many as the holiest day of the year. The one day the high priest would enter the Holy of Holies within the Temple. But on this day, procedures are peculiar. It includes the sending of a goat “to Azazel.” For centuries, scholars have debated the meaning of this goat sent to Azazel. Who does it represent? Some have said Jesus, some have even said Satan. But the answer is just not that simple. It is way more profound and way more interesting.
The answer lies in the Gospel itself! Join me this Day of Atonement as we discuss the relevance of this beautiful feast to our lives today as believers.
