The Effect of the Cross

Read - Isa. 52:15a, 1 Peter 3:18, 1 Jn. 2:1-2

The law given in Leviticus sets out how the sprinkled blood of sac- rifices represents purification and atonement. Here the blood of the servant isn’t sprinkled for a particular person or nation, but the entire world. How does this text connect the Levitical law with the sacrifice of Jesus? Why were the sacrifices of animals insufficient to restore people back to God and why was Jesus’ sacrifice sufficient instead?
