Lev 16:30 on that day the priest shall make atonement for you, to cleanse you, that you may be clean from all your sins before YHWH
I. The Day of Atonement provided a means of dealing w/ sin so people could be reconciled to and have a relationship with (serve) God
A. A rlshp w/ God has rules of engagement Lev 16:1-2. We must appoach Him on His terms Jn 4:24 Sin is bad, and breaks the rlshp Isa 59:2.
We must pay to fix it, using the currency God provides by grace. Belief=God accepts Lev 1:3-4; Gen 4:7 X as substitute pymt for our sin.
B. Rm 10:1 heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel...may saved. 2 they have a zeal for God, but not acc to knowledge 3 ignorant of God's R, seeking to establish their own R, have not submitted to the R of God 4 Christ end of the law for R to everyone who believes.
C. Lev (1:3-4) 4:20 the priest shall make an atonement for them, and it shall be forgiven them 26,31,35, 5:10,13,16,18,6:7,19:22 cx Num 15:30-31
(Ex 29:11,15,22) Lev 17:11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul. Ezk 45:20 for everyone who has sinned unintentionally or in ignorance.
D. Ps 27:4 One thing I have desired of the LORD, that will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire piel intensive in His temple. Ps 15:1 LORD, who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell in Your holy hill? 2 He who walks uprightly, and works righteousness, and speaks the truth in his heart 3 Who does not...
II. Ritual is useless unless it results in the righteous relationship of Yahweh being our God, and us being His holy people.
A. Lev 16:5 take from the congregation...two kids of the goats as a sin offering, and one ram as a burnt offering*. 6 Aaron shall offer the bull as a sin offering, for himself, and make atonement for himself and for his house. 8 cast lots for the two goats (#2 go-goat)
15 kill the #1 goat of the sin offering, which is for the people, bring its blood inside the veil, do with that blood as he did with the blood of the bull, and sprinkle it on the mercy seat and before the mercy seat. [15b-20a chiastic center] 16 So he shall make atonement for the Holy Place, because of the uncleanness of the children of Israel, and because of their transgressions, for all their sins; and so he shall do for the tabernacle of meeting which remains among them in the midst of their uncleanness.
B. 21 Aaron shall lay both his hands on the head of the live goat, confess over it all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions, concerning all their sins, putting them on the head of the goat, and shall send it away into the wilderness by the hand of a suitable man. 22 The goat shall bear on itself all their iniquities to an uninhabited land; and he shall release the goat in the wilderness.
C.*Sin-offering symbolized covering for the sin; Whole burnt-offering symbolized dedication for blessing Ex 20:24 covered the people
D.23 take off the linen garments 24 bathe himself and put on his regular garments. Then he shall come out and sacrifice the burnt offering for himself and the burnt offering for the people, to make atonement for himself and for the people.
E. Heb 10:1-4 shadow can't perfect but reminds of sin, 1 shadow of things to come, can't make those who approach perfect. 3 in those sacrifices there is a reminder of sins every year. 4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and goats could take away sins. Man sin Man die
III. Results of the the Restored Relationship = Victory/Empowerment, Service, Reward * (1Tim 6:12 cf Heb 2:11 9:15)
Heb 9:7 into the 2nd part the high priest went alone once a year, not w/o blood...offered for himself...people's sins committed in ignorance; 9 symbolic...cannot make...perfect in regard to the conscience 12...with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption. 13 sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh, 14 how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? 15 And for this reason He is the Mediator of the new covenant Jer 31:31, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, that those who are called* 2:11 may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.
A. Justifiction?Access Heb 4:16 come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Heb 9:22 acc to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission. Cf Yoma 5:1
B. Sanctification 1Jn 1:9 forgive & cleanse Heb 10:22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed Rev 1:5 with pure water. Heb 8:10 the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
Act 24:16 In view of resurrection, I also strive to maintain always a blameless/void of offence conscience before God and men 2Co 1:12
Rm 9:1 I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness (passing judgment) in union with the Holy Spirit
C. Glorification (Salvation reverses the effects of the Fall) 10:26 now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. 27 And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, 28 so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation. Cf 7:19 better hope
Questions for Reflection/Discussion/Response:
1. Did the OT folks have a rlshp with God? How was that possible? Wha implication does this have for understanding the NT?
2. Why did God require a blood sacrifice? Why is He particular? Now can OT Judaism be practiced after the Temple was destroyed in AD 70?
3. Why did God want people to be forgiven and cleansed? What's the point of having a relationship with Him? What helps/hinders it?
4. Is God pleased with (favorably accepting of) you? How can you offer a whole burnt offering of dedication to God Rm 12:1-2?
5. How are you experiencing the results of a restored relationship with God? What might you be lacking, and how can you “fix” it?

DTB Observations: 9:1-7 The author reviews the set up of the sacrificial system, giving details of what was in the ark of the covenant not found in the OT. Exodus 16:32-34 said the manna was to be kept before the Lord and Numbers 17 speaks of Aaron's rod. But the point is that the high priest entered the Holy of Hollies only once every year to sprinkle blood on the mercy seat which sat on top of the Ark/Chest that contained the Covenant. The idea was that God's presence, dwelling in between the Cherubim would look down and see the Law which pointed out the sin of the people, and called for their death was violated. But the mercy seat, between His presence and the law, would be covered over with blood (the word for atone means to cover) thus covering the people's sin, and satisfying God's wrath temporarily until a more permanent solution would come.
9:8-15 A veil stood between God and the people indicating that there was not free access to Him, due to the sins which separated them from Him. The ritual sacrifices were incapable of making the worshiper “perfect” according to the measure of (katawith the accusative) their conscience. “Perfect” was used earlier of completion or bringing to the glorified state (2:10; 5:9; 7:11 -noun, 19) and later (10:1, 14, 11:40; 12:23) which is dependent upon fulfilling, perfecting or bringing to completion God's plan (via living in accord with His will). The conscience, our governing sense of right and wrong, is what guides our actions. The OT sacrificial system, which was a matter of flesh rather than Spirit, was not able to “re-program” our conscience by having the Holy Spirit write God's law on our heart (a condition which the New Covenant changes, as explained in chapter 10). At Christ's death the veil was torn from top to bottom (Mt 27:51), indicating the way was now accessible. As the high priest of the coming good things (among them being the Holy Spirit) entered once for all into the Holy place after having secured eternal redemption (payment for sin). The blood of animals sanctify or cleanse the flesh, but the blood of Christ goes to the core of the problem, cleansing our conscience from acts that lead to death (NIV or dead works) so that we can serve the living God. If our “governor” of what's right and wrong is programmed by the worldly values, we will choose to do what's wrong, rather than serve God. If our conscience is cleansed by the blood, and rewritten by the Spirit of God with His truth, we will choose to serve God, and wind up getting blessed/glorified.
9:16-22 For this reason of cleaning up and renewing our conscience, Christ is the mediator ot the New Covenant (and the work of the Spirit), so that those, who have been redeemed from their transgressions pointed out by the Law, may receive the promise of inheritance in the Age. In order for a covenant (as in last will and testament) to take effect, there needs to be the death of the person making it. The first covenant went into effect with the blood of animals. In the Ancient Near East, when a covenant was made, animals were sacrificed, and the halves laid apart from each other. The parties making the covenant would join hands and walk through the animals saying something to the effect of “may what happened to these animals happen to us if we violate the terms of this covenant.” This is the background to God's covenant with Abraham in Genesis 15 (see comments there) although only God passed through the covenant, indicating that His promises to bless Abraham was solely dependent upon His efforts. When Moses was making the covenant with the nation of Israel, he sprinkled blood on the nation, as a symbol of the normal covenant making practice. Similarly using hyssop and blood, Moses sprinkled blood over everything in the tabernacle to cleanse it from sin, by covering it over with the blood, which was the required payment for sin. Without the shedding of blood, there is no covering nor forgiveness (Lev 17:11).
9:23-26 It was necessary for the earthly copies of the heavenly things to be cleansed with the blood of animals, but the heavenly things are cleansed with the blood of Jesus. Christ didn't enter a man made tabernacle multiple times, but a heavenly one, once for all with His own blood. The timing was one time only, at the end of the OT age, to put away/make void or annul sin (only used elsewhere in 7:18 of the law).
9:27-28 These last two verses are worth knowing well. Humans get one chance at life, and then face judgment. There are no second chances; there is no re-incarnation. Just like Christ died once, so do humans; flipping the analogy around, just like humans die once, so did Christ. The whole argument in the preceding verses is that Christ died once, because that is all that was necessary to permanently pay for all sin for all time. Those who think they can re-sacrificing Christ must be ignorant of this passage. Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many (since not all will accept His death on their behalf and choose to die for their own sins). Christ will return again, but not in reference to sin (“to bear sin” is a good interpretation -NIV), because He already did that. He will return at His second coming to bring salvation (glorification, since justification is already our present possession) to those who eagerly await Him. Those who aren't looking forward to His return are probably not busy laying up rewards in heaven according to His instructions (Mt 6:19-20).
Application: Since it's inevitable that we die and face judgment, it might be a good idea to use the time we have on earth preparing to do well at the judgment seat of Christ.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, please guide me in living to please You so I can eagerly anticipate Your return in glory. Amen.

Wikipedia Article on REPENTANCE IN JUDAISM, and an excerpt from the Anglican Book of Common Prayer (at end)
Repentance in Judaism known as teshuva (Hebrew: ??????, literally "return"), is the way of atoning for sin in Judaism.
According to Gates of Repentance, a standard work of Jewish ethics written by Rabbenu Yonah of Gerona 1263, if someone commits a sin, a forbidden act, he can be forgiven for that sin if he performs teshuva, which includes:
- regretting/acknowledging the sin;
- forsaking the sin (see below);
- worrying about the future consequences of the sin;
- acting and speaking with humility;
- acting in a way opposite to that of the sin (for example, for the sin of lying, one should speak the truth);
- understanding the magnitude of the sin;
- refraining from lesser sins for the purpose of safeguarding oneself against committing greater sins;
- confessing the sin (see below);
- praying for atonement;
- correcting the sin however possible (for example, if one stole an object, the stolen item must be returned or if one slanders another, the slanderer must ask the injured party for forgiveness);
- pursuing works of chesed and truth;
- remembering the sin for the rest of one's life;
- refraining from committing the same sin if the opportunity presents itself again;
- teaching others not to sin.
Guides to the process of repentance in Judaism can be found through the rabbinical literature, see especially Maimonides' Rules of Repentance in the Mishneh Torah.
According to the Talmud, repentance was among the first things God created; even before God created the physical universe (Nedarim 39b).When the Temple in Jerusalem was active, a Jew was required to bring various sacrifices for certain types of sins. Although sacrifices were required, the most essential part was teshuva, the person bringing the sacrifice would confess his sins. Presently, with the Temple destroyed, atonement may nevertheless be granted by doing teshuva.
CONFESSION IN JUDAISM
Short Confession (an acrostic in Hebrew)
I acknowledge before You, Lord my G-d and the G-d of my fathers, that my recovery and my death are in Your hands. May it be Your will that You heal me with total recovery, but, if I die, may my death be an atonement for all the errors, iniquities, and willful sins that I have erred, sinned and transgressed before You, and may You grant my share in the Garden of Eden, and grant me the merit to abide in the World to Come which is vouchsafed for the righteous.
Our G-d and G-d of our fathers, may our prayers come before You, and do not turn away from our supplication, for we are not so impudent and obdurate as to declare before You, Lord our G-d and G-d of our fathers, that we are righteous and have not sinned. Indeed, we and our fathers have sinned.
We have transgressed, we have acted perfidiously (faithless-not to be trusted), we have robbed, we have slandered. We have acted perversely and wickedly, we have willfully sinned, we have done violence, we have imputed falsely. We have given evil counsel, we have lied, we have scoffed, we have rebelled, we have provoked, we have been disobedient, we have committed iniquity, we have wantonly transgressed, we have oppressed, we have been obstinate. We have committed evil, we have acted perniciously, we have acted abominably, we have gone astray, we have led others astray. We have strayed from Your good precepts and ordinances, and it has not profited us. Indeed, You are just in all that has come upon us, for You have acted truthfully, and it is we who have acted wickedly.

From the 1828 Anglican Book of Common Prayer
DEARLY beloved brethren, the Scripture moveth us, in sundry places, to acknowledge and confess our manifold sins and wickedness; and that we should not dissemble nor cloak them before the face of Almighty God our heavenly Father; but confess them with an humble, lowly, penitent, and obedient heart; to the end that we may obtain forgiveness of the same, by his infinite goodness and mercy. And although we ought, at all times, humbly to acknowledge our sins before God; yet ought we chiefly so to do, when we assemble and meet together to render thanks for the great benefits that we have received at his hands, to set forth his most worthy praise, to hear his most holy Word, and to ask those things which are requisite and necessary, as well for the body as the soul. Wherefore I pray and beseech you, as many as are here present, to accompany me with a pure heart, and humble voice, unto the throne of the heavenly grace, saying—
A General Confession.
¶ To be said by the whole Congregation. after the Minister, all kneeling.
ALMIGHTY and most merciful Father; We have erred, and strayed from thy ways like lost sheep. We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts. We have offended against thy holy laws. We have left undone those things which we ought to have done; And we have done those things which we ought not to have done; And there is no health in us. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us, miserable offenders. Spare thou those, O God, who confess their faults. Restore thou those who are penitent; According to thy promises declared unto mankind in Christ Jesus our Lord. And grant, O most merciful Father, for his sake; That we may hereafter live a godly, righteous, and sober life, To the glory of thy holy Name. Amen.
The Declaration of Absolution, or Remission of Sins.
ALMIGHTY God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who desireth not the death of a sinner, but rather that he may turn from his wickedness and live, hath given power, and commandment, to his Ministers, to declare and pronounce to his people, being penitent, the Absolution and Remission of their sins. He pardoneth and absolveth all those who truly repent, and unfeignedly believe his holy Gospel.
Wherefore let us beseech him to grant us true repentance, and his Holy Spirit, that those things may please him which we do at this present; and that the rest of our life hereafter may be pure and holy; so that at the last we may come to his eternal joy; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

A Bad Priest Sons 16 Now the Lord spoke to Moses after the death of the two sons of Aaron, when they offeredprofane fire before the Lord, and died; 2 and theLord said to Moses: “Tell Aaron your brother not to come at just any time into the Holy Placeinside the veil, before the mercy seat which is on the ark, lest he die; for I will appear in the cloud above the mercy seat.
