-Fr. Thai's Weekly Reflections-
In order to understand the words of John the Baptist from today’s gospel, we need to begin with the Old Testament’s prophesies about the coming of Christ. In Exodus 29, the temple priests slaughtered a one-year-old lamb and burnt offerings to pay for the sins of the people. That is, people’s daily sins were poured out upon the sacrificial lamb. This ritual was the way to deliver or “pay for” the sins of the people before God.
In the Book of Leviticus 16, a Levite priest sacrifices a male goat, a bull, and a ram seeking absolution. The priest would take the blood of the goal and smear it on the corners of the altar. This practice was to purify the defilements of the children of Israel. However, these rituals could not completely wash away the sins of the people. Immovable, the sins of people remained.
