There was, however, one festival, which clearly and definitely symbolized the Messiah and his work. This was the Day of Atonement. It fore-shadowed the Messiah in many ways, but especially in his office as high-priest, his mediation and atonement by sacrifice. For this reason the Day of Atonement has a greater significance for us than the other festivals of the Old Testament. It has direct prophecies of the Christ who atoned for us.
