Sin and Atonement : Who Needs the Blood?

Loading the player ...

There is no article of faith that is more central to the Church than the belief in the atoning value of Jesus’ sacrificial death at Calvary. Missionaries never miss an opportunity to point out the inability to expiate sin “without the shedding of blood.” Is this claim really true? In this crucial lecture, Rabbi Singer compares the concepts of sin and atonement as set forth by Christianity and Judaism utilizing a thorough presentation of their biblical sources.

What I see as the problem with the ‘church’ is the reliance on ‘blood’ to expiate sin. The known factor is that atonement does not necessarily need blood to cleanse a person from sin. King David, did not have blood shed because of the sins he committed. King David went before the ‘ark of the covenant’ without blood and he not even a priest. How did this happen without David dying? Because David repented from his sin, made repentance and turned from his sin to righteousness through the forgiveness of G-d.
