Reflection Questions
  • Name some of the Old Testament sacrifices. Comment on how effective they were and their meanings for the theology of Atonement.


  • Moses taught that the people of Israel could have their sins forgiven by the sacrifices made to God, but the New Testament (Hebrews 10:1, 4) clearly says “it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sin.” Briefly explain how both of these truths can be true without contradicting one another.


  • What cross-cultural misunderstandings can occur in relation to different world views?
