About This Message


Why Jesus is the greatest of all time…

1. Sin Separates

Aaron will present the bull for his sin offering and make atonement for himself and his household. 7 Next he will take the two goats and place them before the Lord at the entrance to the tent of meeting.
Leviticus 16:6-7 (CSB)

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
Romans 3:23 (CSB)

2. God Eliminates

When he slaughters the male goat for the people’s sin offering and brings its blood inside the curtain, he will do the same with its blood as he did with the bull’s blood: He is to sprinkle it against the mercy seat and in front of it.  He will make atonement for the most holy place in this way for all their sins because of the Israelites’ impurities and rebellious acts. He will do the same for the tent of meeting that remains among them, because it is surrounded by their impurities.
Leviticus 16:15-16 (CSB)

Aaron will lay both his hands on the head of the live goat and confess over it all the Israelites’ iniquities and rebellious acts―all their sins.  He is to put them on the goat’s head and send it away into the wilderness by the man appointed for the task. The goat will carry all their iniquities into a desolate land, and the man will release it there.
Leviticus 16:21-22 (CSB)

Every priest stands day after day ministering and offering the same sacrifices time after time, which can never take away sins. 12 But this man, after offering one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God.
Hebrews 10:11-12 (CSB)

But God proves his own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 5:8 (CSB)

He made the one who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
2 Corinthians 5:21 (CSB)

3. We Reciprocate

Atonement will be made for you on this day to cleanse you, and you will be clean from all your sins before the Lord.
Leviticus 16:30 (CSB)

As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.
Psalm 103:12 (CSB)

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time for us to do.
Ephesians 2:10 (CSB)
