Leviticus 16 — Day of Atonement

Leviticus 16 provides us an “insider’s view” of the Day of Atonement. We can know what the High Priest is doing on that day, even though the common person was not allowed to witness most of of the tasks required of the High Priest on that day. Most of the priests activities are “covered” away from the general public. The people of Israel had to believe by faith that the High Priest was doing his job on their behalf properly and that God would accept the High Priest’s offerings on their behalf.

Though questions

Why is this day the most important day in the Jewish calendar?
What is Azazel?
What is the scapegoat?
What is the functioning of the laying of hands on the animal?
What does the blood on the four corners of the altar represent?
Did the animals sacrificed on Day of Atonement represent individuals or the community?
Why is are the goats female?
What happens to the sins, transgressions and iniquities on Day of Atonement?
What is the wall/veil broken down?
What does the devil have to do with this?
