As you are very keen to make Jesus "the lamb that was the perfect sacrifice, let me ask you where this idea of "sacrificing lamb" came from?Clearly the LORD foretold the events that were to happen concerning the death of Jesus and ISAIAH chapter 53 was one scripture speaking of him. Jesus is the lamb of God.
You must agree that Jesus was a Jew and his "sacrifice" was measured in terms of Jewish requirements. Hope you are not suggesting that his sacrifice was according to somwe pagan rituals?
By making this lamb sacrifice into a perfect one, you also accuse the Jews of carrying out the sacrifice followed by the eating of your lamb.
Why don't you familiarise yourself with the rules and regs of sacrifice!
You are suggesting the following REPORT on the events 2000 years ago.....
The sacrificial lamb B/JESUS was a male, one year old, and without blemish.
Each family or society (of Jews) offered the victim B/JESUS together, and it was obligatory to determine who were to take part in the sacrifice that the killing might take place with the proper intentions (Can't be pontius pilot? pharisees? priests?).
Only those who were circumcised and clean before the Law might participate (the romans were of course not circumcised!!!); and they were forbidden to have leavened food in their possession during the act of killing the B/JESUS, the paschal lamb.
The animal, B/JESUS, was slain on the eve of the Passover, on the afternoon of the 14th of Nisan, after the Tamid sacrifice had been killed, i.e., at three o'clock, or, in case the eve of the Passover fell on Friday, at two.
The killing of B/JESUS took place in the court of the Temple, and might have been performed by a layman (Roman?), although the BLOOD had to be caught by a JEWISH priest (Will the real Jewish priest come forward?), and ROWS of JEWISH priests with gold or silver cups in their hands stood in line from the Temple court to the altar, where the BLOOD was sprinkled.
These cups were rounded on the bottom, so that they could not be set down; for in that case the blood of B/JESUS might coagulate.
The JEWISH priest who caught the blood as it dropped from B/JESUS, the victim then handed the cup to the priest next to him, receiving from him an empty one, and the FULL cup was passed along the line until it reached the last priest, who SPRINKLED its CONTENTS on the ALTAR.
B/JESUS, the lamb was then HUNG upon SPECIAL HOOKS or STICKS and SKINNED; but if the eve of the Passover fell on a Sabbath, the SKIN was REMOVED down to the BREAST only.
B/JESUS' ABDOMEN was then CUT OPEN, and the FATTY PORTIONS intended FOR the ALTAR were TAKEN OUT, PLACED IN a VESSEL, SALTED, and OFFERED BY the JEWISH PRIEST on the ALTAR, while the REMAINIING ENTRAILS likewise were taken out and CLEANSED.
OVER TO....On Sabbath Eve.
