16 shows the atonement of Christ intypology. Here is God’s instruction onhow the Day of Atonement was to beobserved.The instructions begin with awarning. No one except Aaron is al-lowed to enter the Most Holy Place,and he is to enter only on the Day of Atonement. God reminds Aaron inverse 1 of the death of his two sons, Nadab and Abiuh, (see Leviticus 10:1-
3) when they “offered strange re”
before the Lord.
And the Lord spake unto Moses af-ter the death of the two sons of Aaron,when they offered before the Lord, and died;
Aaron is specically warnedthat he will die like his two sonsif he comes into the Most HolyPlace at any time other than theDay of Atonement.
And the Lord said unto Moses,Speak unto Aaron thy brother, that he come not at all times into the holy place within the veil before the mercy seat, which is upon the ark; that hedie not: for I will appear in the cloud upon the mercy seat
Aaron is then instructed exactlyhow he is to approach God in the
Most Holy Place. He rst brings a sin
offering and a burnt offering. He thenfully bathes and puts on plain linenclothing including his underwear.These are special garments that Aaronwill only wear on the Day of Atone-ment. The rest of the year he wears theclothes described in Exodus 28:3-35.His regular clothes were very ornateand colorful. On the Day of Atone-ment Aaron will lay aside his regular ornate high priestly clothes, bathehimself and put on the special plainlinen clothing. He will put the special
linen clothes on when he rst comes
into the Most Holy Place, and he willtake them off after the scapegoat isreleased and will not wear them againfor another year.The laying aside of the royalclothes and putting on the plain cloth-ing reminds us of the fact that our Lord’s atonement was accomplishedin his humanity, that is, as “the
Christ Jesus.” It was not the Son of God in the full power of his deity thatdefeated Satan, but it was Jesus, theson of Mary, our true kinsman, our older brother who fought and con-quered Satan as our substitute. In hisincarnation our Lord did not cease to be absolute deity, but he did lay asidethe
of his deity and put on
the robe of human esh with all its
limitations yet without sin. He laidaside the use of the splendor and gloryof his deity and robed himself in the plain linen of our humanity in order to become one with us in our humanityand function as our kinsman redeemer.
Thus shall Aaron come into theholy place: with a young bullock for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering. He shall put on the holylinen coat, and he shall have the linen
breeches upon his esh, and shall be
girded with a linen girdle, and with thelinen mitre shall he be attired: theseare holy garments; therefore shall he
wash his esh in water, and so put
Aaron then takes two goats fromthe congregation for a sin offering andone ram for a burnt offering. He offersthe bullock for himself and his house
Everything that in any way involveseither
the priest or the people must be the cleanest by sprinkled blood
because it has been deled by contact
And he shall take of the congrega-tion of the children of Israel two kidsof the goats for a sin offering, and oneram for a burnt offering. And Aaron shall offer his bullock of the sin offer-ing, which is for himself, and makean atonement for himself, and for hishouse
The symbolism of the two goatsis the heart of the Day of Atonement.Two goats are chosen from among the
