Romans 8:3 For what the law was powerless to do ... God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful man
to be a sin offering. And so He condemned sin in sinful man.
Leviticus 6:24-27 The LORD said to Moses: These are the regulations for the sin offering: The sin offering is to be slaughtered
before the LORD in the place the burnt offering is slaughtered; it is most holy. The priest who offers it shall eat it; it is to
be eaten in a holy place. Whatever touches any of the flesh will become holy.
