Watch: How the Ancient Day of Atonement Helps Us Understand Christ's Role as Our Savior


The Day of the Atonement was extremely significant to the people of the Old Testament, but how do they relate to Christ in the New Testament?

A new video from Messages of Christ explains the intricacies of Day of Atonement referenced in this week's Come, Follow Me readings (Hebrews 9–10) and how these ordinances point to Christ's Atonement in the New Testament. 

As Daniel Smith from Messages of Christ explains, "The problem today is that very few modern-day Saints understand the intricacies of the [Law of Moses] so much of the text is not understood. Yet, as you understand the various ordinances, and in particular the Day of Atonement, you can better understand the beautiful message about the Savior and His Atonement."
