The Term Scapegoat Originates From Hebrew
Once a Year, on The Day of Atonement, the High Priest Entered the Holy of Holies
With the Blood of a Goat to Atone, (Cover) for the sins of the people.
Casting Lots Between Two Goats:
The Sins of the People were Symbolically Placed on the Scapegoat
Even Today’s Definition of a Scapegoat is used for the person we Place Blame.
Although the original Scapegoat wasn’t blamed for the “confessed” sins of the people, it did symbolize the complete removal of their sin as it was lead out of the camp and into the wilderness.
“The goat shall bear on itself all their iniquities to a solitary land/uninhabited, (Gezerah #1509); and he shall release the goat in the wilderness/desert, (Midbar #4057b).” Leviticus 16:22
Just after Yeshua was baptized the Spirit descended upon Him, like a dove, and lead Him into the wilderness, Matthew 4:1.
Yeshua fulfilled all that spoke about Him, He said,
“These are the words I spoke to you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about Me in the Torah of Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms.” Then He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures.Luke 24:44, 45
