7440 scapegoat

7440 scapegoat

A goat which was sent into the wilderness by the high priest, as a symbol of the removal of the sins of the people.

The scapegoat as part of an OT ritual

Lev 16:7-10,20-22 See also Lev 16:26; Isa 53:4

The scapegoat anticipates Jesus Christ’s atonement

Jn 1:29; 2Co 5:21; Heb 9:11-14 Jesus Christ’s death is here contrasted with the OT sacrificial system.
