Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement)

Yom Kippur at the time of Jesus consisted of extremely important sacrifices and rituals in the Temple involving the High Priest, the priesthood as a whole and the Jewish people. An understanding of what the Temple stood for symbolically, and of ancient understandings of the nature of the High Priest, help to illuminate not only the meaning and nature of atonement but of how Jesus’ death and resurrection were interpreted and understood by his early followers.
