    Leviticus 16 details the sacrificial protocol for the Scapegoat:

    This seems to echo the story of Yeshua haNotzri and Barabbas in the Gospels. Compare also Pilate's handwashing to v.26:

    This would seem to paint Pilate as the analog of Aaron... yet, Fischer and Fischer in "The Distortion: 2000 years of Misrepresenting the Relationship between Jesus the Messiah and the Jewish People" explicitly relate Pilate's handwashing to High Priestly ritual (pg. 30). Furthermore, the statement "His blood be upon us" is a reference to the sacrificial atonement of blood, and Yeshua as the "perfect sacrifice" to achieve atonement (ibid, pg 25).

    In reality----Jesus Christ is both the sacrifice and the scape goat in fulfillment of Jewish Law

    It is hardly fitting that a hardened criminal such as Barrabas would suffice God's plan of taking sin away---such as what the scape goat pictured
