via Targuman – passover and the atonement

Dr. Brady writes,

So let’s now jump to the NT. Jesus goes up to Jerusalem and is crucified at the time of Passover. Thus, Paul equates Christ’s sacrifice with the Passover offering. But the author of Hebrews also sees Jesus as the atonement sacrifice, the one and only sacrifice offered in the Holy of Holies (Heb. 9:12). So Jesus is both/and the Passover sacrifice and our atoning sacrifice. BUT this does not mean that we should conflate the two in the Old Testament.

I’ll need this for later, but in the meantime, give it a read.

Especially this part,

BUT this does not mean that we should conflate the two in the Old Testament.
