Blood sacrifice is Pagan, the Israelites adopted the practice from the Pagan world. God is a forgiving father, no animals or human sacrifice is required. If separated from God in sin and rebellion, the child need have a change of heart, confess sin and receive forgiveness. Then remain loyal to the Father going forward.I thought that was what the whole of scriptures was mainly about…..
IT IS WHAT THE SCRIPTURES IS MAINLY ABOUT!!
The Old Testament showed his blood sacrifice (blood from an unblemished animal) did not satisfy God but was used as a reminder of the one true sacrifice of an unblemished man that they were awaiting. Jesus Christ performed that role with all the meekness of an innocent lamb. Hence, he did not sane his life when put in front of Pontius Pilate who desired Jesus to be released but could not because the people demanded another. Jesus could have said, ‘it is true that I am not committing sedition against Caesar and against Rome but instead pronounced and acknowledged the truth that he was ‘King of the Jews’ - which is, of course, a SPIRITUAL kingship which is not attached to an EARTHLY kingship. The Jews mistook Jesus’ words and wanted him dead… which played into the hands of God because this scriptures was fulfilled AS IT WAS PROPHESIED thousands of years before!!
