The lamb was, indeed, a picture of the work that Jesus Christ would do, taking our sins upon Himself so that we could live.

    Okay, I had to come back because I now have a serious question for you.  Leviticus, and the Old Testament in general, deal with all sorts of sacrifices the people did to atone for their sins.  The New Testament, however, is all about faith without works.  How do I reconcile the two?

-The people were saved temporarily by the animal blood.-

-The people were saved by faith.  The animal blood was a showing of that faith.-

-The people weren’t saved, because only Jesus saves.  They had to wait.-

-The Bible is not clear.-
