“Major Leap Forward”

Leviticus 16: 3:  “Aaron shall enter the holy place with this: with a bull for a sin offering and a ram for a burnt offering.”  What makes this chapter of Leviticus so special that, after nine solid weeks of Exodus as the first reading of the MDR, we can skip the first fifteen chapters of Leviticus but have to stop here?  Well, chapter sixteen of Leviticus seems like it’s talking about Aaron, but it’s really talking about the true Paschal sacrifice of Christ, the true High Priest; how He sprinkled the true altar in heaven with true blood (His own) from the true sacrifice (Himself, Hebrews 9: 6-14; 23-26).  The rest of this book is also filled with many symbolic laws of purification which Christ fulfilled, but we want to make sure we don’t miss this one that reveals the very nature of Easter!
