The Atonement in Type and Antitype 2 Going forth to Jesus

In Heb. 13: 13-16, the Apostle speaks of us going forth to Jesus without the camp, to bear his reproach. Does this mean that we are to consider ourselves and our sacrifices (Rom. 12: 1) as sin offerings, as it were the goat following the bullock? It cannot mean this, for the goat sacrifice has […]
