As stated above life is in the blood. Now, I will try and give VERY EASY CONCEPT of blood atonement for you to understand.

Interesting question! I first read this passage in BPT09 (portuguese) which states Dois meses decorridos, voltou para junto de seu pai. Ele fez como tinha prometido ao Senhor e ela morreu sem se ter casado. Assim teve origem o costume, que existe em Israel, de as jovens saírem quatro dias por ano, para chorarem a má sorte da filha de Jefté, de Guilead. ...

Was there a specific place outside the camp? Note that at the time, the Israelites were wandering in the wilderness. There was not even a fixed place for the camp. The place outside the camp for this sacrifice had to be with respect to the mobile camp itself as suggested by oldhermit's answer. It was east of the tabernacle, east of the precinct of Judah. ...

Verse 4 is very specific that the place of sacrifice was to be made in such a place that it was facing the entrance of the tabernacle. The priest would dip his finger in the blood and sprinkle it seven times in the direction of the front of the tent of meeting. This would suggest that the place of sacrifice would have been east of the camp facing westward ...

These passages seem to set forth clearly lex talionis aka "the principle of retaliation," at least in the case of bodily harm or murder: [Exo 21:24 NLT] (24) an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a hand for a hand, a foot for a foot, [Lev 24:20 NLT] (20) a fracture for a fracture, an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.

Blood is arguably one of the most important symbols of both the Old and New Testament. From the very first account of fratricide in the OT, blood plays a significant role in both the literal and symbolic sense: The LORD said, ‘What have you done? Listen! Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground. Now you are under a curse and driven from the ...

I think the Bible reading at 1 Peter is clear enough. The blood has to be applied to claim the benefits therein. The practice in testament is a Similitude's of what is expected in practice in the New Testament. Holy common gave us the blood component as a wine he blessed and call it His blood. If any believer is challenged in any area of life and you have ...

Why does blood have to shed for purification and forgiveness of sins? Hebrews 9:22 God our creator the giver of life stated his decision: Leviticus 17:11-12 NASB 11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you on the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood by reason of the life that makes atonement.’ 12 ...

Blood and it’s relationship to ‘sin’. The verse you quoted relates to the ceremonial practices related to the Law. HEBREWS 9:22 And according to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission.

Actually, the NT uses a technical word for this blood-atonement usually translated, "propitiation". Propitiation or expiation (Greek: “hilasterion”) denotes the act of appeasing a deity by sacrifice to incur divine favour (it is only an analogue, metaphor or figure of speech!). Thus, Jesus’ sacrifice is described as propitiation in: Rom 3:25 - ...
