I can't even begin to imagine what it was like for the Israelites to sacrifice animals for forgiveness for their sins on a regular basis. Even the ordination of Aaron and his sons required a bull to be sacrificed each day for a week as an offering for sin. The blood was splattered on the priest's clothing (it must have smelled AWFUL!), and sacrifices continued up until Christ's death (I'm not sure to what extent Jews still practices animal sacrifice, if at all). Reading this makes me even more grateful than I was before for all that Christ did when He took my death on the cross. One thing is certain: sin is messy!
