Leviticus 4:13-14 “If the whole congregation of Israel commits a sin unwittingly and the thing is hidden from the eyes of the assembly, and they do any one of the things which the Lord has commanded not to be done and are guilty; when the sin which they have committed becomes known, the assembly shall offer a young bull for a sin offering
As I read this, I realized that sin in itself is dealt with before this Creator God, by the offering of a young bull without blemish. The Lamb of God takes us out of the bondage to that environment which is the physical world and sets our hearts on spiritual things. Once our hearts are on spiritual things, we see that we have sinned against this heavenly Creator who is Spirit. Thus, it is necessary now for a young bull without blemish to be offered.
