Jesu, Juva

Mercy seat

I wrote recently about one way in which the cross is a type of the day of atonement.

My friend Al writes about another way in which the resurrection is a type of the day of atonement:

. . . In John 20 the stone on which they laid Jesus at this death is empty when Mary visits on the first day of the week. But on either side of the empty bed is an angel. It seems intentional that John wants us to see this place, the resurrection place, as a new mercy seat; the resurrection bed of Jesus is the new place of covering for the law.

He was raised for our justification . . .
