The Bible Project: Explanation Of Sacrifice And Atonement
How much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God – Hebrews 9:13
The words “sacrifice” and “atonement” get thrown around a lot in Christian circles, but do we really understand what they mean? What is the link between animal sacrifices in the Old Testament, and Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross? Why was blood shed necessary in the first place? Can’t God just get rid of evil? The Bible Project seeks to explain major books, themes, and elements of the Bible that sometimes get lost in translation, or otherwise overlooked.
