Christ the Atoning Sacrifice

God took away the First; the old systems; the old ceremonies, to establish the Second, the New Covenant: Christ the Atonement, is fulfilment of prophecy.

Christ offered up His body as that Living Sacrifice. He abolished the insufficient legal sacrifices that were being offered up under the Law of Moses. God was not pleased with these burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin (Hebrews 10:6) and the writer to the Hebrews quotes from Psalm 40:6 when he says these types of offerings were valueless in God’s eyes.

Only Christ could perfect the imperfections that constituted the old burnt offerings and sacrifices under the Law. Without the cornerstone in a building, it will collapse. Christ is the cornerstone that holds the building together.

Christ came in obedience to do the Father’s will and this is what God says of Him,

“This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”- Matthew 3:17
