And he shall take…two kids of the goats for a sin offering. Leviticus 16:5
On the Day of Atonement, Aaron offered two goats for a sin offering for the people. One goat was slain and its blood sprinkled on the mercy seat (Lev. 16:15), pointing to Christ’s sacrifice and His shed blood taken into heaven as evidence that He had died in our place (Heb. 9:12). The other goat was set free in the wilderness after Aaron had confessed the people’s sins on its head (Lev. 16:21-22), pointing to Christ, made sin for us, that we might be set free (2 Cor. 5:21). God forgives our sins and remembers them no more (Heb. 10:17). —K. C. Ung
Christ has for sin atonement made, what a wonderful Saviour!
We are redeemed, the price is paid, what a wonderful Saviour! —Hoffman
