”Pastor Larry…you will not believe what just happened to me!” The Bible is full of pictures of Christ in the Old Testament that are crystal clear! These portraits of Jesus in the O.T. are called “TYPES”. Examples of O.T. Types • Abraham offering Isaac • Coats of skin put around Adam & Eve • Water from the Rock • Manna in the wilderness • Passover Lamb • Ruth – Kinsman Redeemer (Nov. 30) Silhouettes of the Savior CHRIST THE SCAPEGOAT Leviticus 16 Leviticus 16: 7-8 Then he is to take the two goats and present them before the LORD at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. He is to cast lots for the two goats—one lot for the LORD and the other for the scapegoat. NIV Leviticus 16: 9-10 Aaron shall bring the goat whose lot falls to the LORD and sacrifice it for a sin offering. But the goat chosen by lot as the scapegoat shall be presented alive before the LORD to be used for making atonement by sending it into the desert as a scapegoat. God provided a portable house of worship in the Wilderness called the Tabernacle. Once a year, on the Day of Atonement, the High Priest brought 2 goats to the Tabernacle as offerings for the sins of the people. Both of these goats are a type of Christ, even though Satan is symbolized by a goat in the Bible. The Two Goats The first goat is sacrificed to God in at the altar in the Tabernacle. The second goat is bound and sent away to die in the desert. Azazel is another name for Satan. However, it is important to note that the goat was not Satan. The goat was sent to Satan to die as a sin- bearer. THE SCAPEGOAT The Scapegoat was like Christ in that it was…. 1. Sent away 2. Sin Substitute 3. Isolated 4. Forsaken 5. Turned over to Satan 6.
