Atonement
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2017
Posted by: Shreveport Grace Church | more..
Atonement

The first use of the word ‘atonement’ (‘kaphar’ in Hebrew) in the Bible is in Genesis 6:14, where it is translated by the word ‘pitch,’ a type of tar used by Noah to cover the outside and inside of the ark. From this then, comes the idea of a ‘covering’ which is a good translation with regard to what the Old Testament sacrifices represented. However, Hebrews 10:4 makes it clear that no animal sacrifices could ever take away sins, therefore, the meaning of ‘atonement’ as a covering is a good translation for the word, rather than using it, as is often done, to refer to the expiation, satisfaction, or canceling of sin. Again, those animal sacrifices were but types and figures of the one true sacrifice that the LORD Jesus Christ would make, in laying down His life, which then, could not be a mere ‘atonement’ (covering) for sin but the actual putting away of sin, as stated in Hebrews 9:26, “…he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.”

Some have equated atonement with propitiation because in twenty-five instances in the Old Testament, the Hebrew word ‘kaphar’, usually translated atonement, is also translated ‘mercy seat’ (Exodus 25:17-22, Leviticus 16:2, etc.). However, in those instances, the word is not used of the blood that was sprinkled on the mercy seat but refers to the mercy seat itself, which was a solid gold covering placed over the ark of the covenant, upon which the blood of the ‘atonement’ was sprinkled. Therefore, it is still consistent with the idea of sins being covered, or, in other words, typically removed from sight while awaiting the full and final putting away of them in the death of the LORD Jesus Christ. Again, as the writer to the Hebrews wrote in those Spirit inspired words in 10:1-2, the sacrifices were but “…a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.”

A survey of the use of the Hebrew word ‘kaphar’ in other passages of Scripture, reveals the wide variety that the translators used it, depending on the context. For example, it is translated as ‘to be merciful’ inDeuteronomy 32:43, ‘to pardon’ in2 Chronicles 30:18, ‘pacify’ inProverbs 16:14, ‘forgive’ inJeremiah 18:23, ‘to purge’ inEzekiel 43:20, ‘reconcile,’ in Ezekiel 45:20and ‘to make reconciliation’ inDaniel 9:24. Some may argue that Daniel 9:24 is prophetical and referring to the death that the LORD Jesus would accomplish. This is true, and yet from the Old Testament vantage point, the LORD Jesus had to fulfill every jot and tittle of the law- Matthew 5:17, and therefore, it is proper to translate the word from ‘atonement’ to ‘reconciliation’, in the sense of fulfilling all that the types pictured in His death, and ultimately to bring in everlasting righteousness, which is exactly what He did, by the sin of His people being imputed to Him in judgment, and the very righteousness (justice) of God being simultaneously imputed (charged) to the elect of God, once for all- Hebrews 10:10.

Regardless of how we may interpret this word in these various contexts, they must always be understood in a provisional (interim) sense awaiting the work of the LORD Jesus, and never in an absolute sense, otherwise as the apostle Paul declared in Galatians 2:21, “…if righteousness come by the law, Christ is dead in vain.” We have many cases that illustrate provisional attributions that are lawful, but not permanent until the final acquisition is made. Somebody may be granted a provisional stay of a penalty while awaiting the full satisfaction by which full pardon and absolution is made. Such was the case for the Old Testament believers, awaiting the full and final fulfillment of what those animal blood sacrifices represented.
