Yom Kippur was, and is, the most solemn and important day in the Jewish calendar, beginning at sundown Tuesday, September 22 through Wednesday, September 23, 2015. Once a year on the Day of Atonement, the High Priest was permitted to enter the Holy of Holies in the Tabernacle to approach the Lord where His Spirit resided. While the Old Covenant sacrifices were provisional and recurring, they could only cover man’s sin. For the Follower of Jesus Christ, the sacrifice through Jesus’ death and resurrection is eternal and totally sufficient. The moment one places his trust in the Messiah’s sacrifice upon the Cross, the sin question is settled forever. There is no longer a need for continual sacrifices; we are assured that we have life – not just for another year, but for eternity.
