Leviticus Chapter 16 Summary

In Leviticus chapter 16 summary the LORD God spoke to Aaron through Moses. The LORD informed Aaron that he should not come into the holy place within the veil before the mercy seat any time he wanted.

God appeared in a cloud on the mercy seat so Aaron needed only come into the holy place for the sin and burnt offering.

He needed to put on his holy linen and garments and wash up before making atonement for himself, his house, and the whole congregation.

Leviticus Chapter 16 Summary

God gives Aaron the protocol for the scapegoat; which included how one is to be killed and sacrificed for the sins of the entire congregation and the other is to be let free into a land not inhabited, carrying the sins of the entire congregation on his head, after it is presented alive before God; thus being the scapegoat.

Both goats represent Jesus Christ as the sin offering. When Aaron is making atonement for himself, his household, and the congregation of Israel, no man was allowed in the tabernacle of the congregation.

This was the statute forever on the seventh month on the tenth day of the month that all should fast and do no work at all. This is so no matter if you were part of the children of Israel physically or not; because on that day, the priest will make an atonement for you to cleanse you that you become clean from all your sins before God.

This is an everlasting statute to make an atonement for the children of Israel, once a year.

We ask the Father to add blessings to the reading and doing of His Holy Word through His Son Jesus the Messiah. We all agree!
