Atonement. The Old Testament describes the elaborate rituals of sacrifice by which, Aaron, God's designated High Priest, would atone for his sins and the sins of the people of Israel. The High Priest stands in the gap between people and our righteous God. Jesus was designated by God as our High Priest. He was also the Sacrifice, perfect and without blemish (sin), although He was tempted and tested as we are (Hebrews 4:15). Temptation comes from Satan, but testing, or proving experiences, are used by God to make us more like Jesus. Because He was tempted, Jesus understands our human tendency to succumb to temptation, and so deals with us gently. He is still interceding with God on our behalf - our eternal High Priest. "Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and grace to help us in our time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).
