    I enjoyed your site. The engraving of the ark and the mercy seat helped me to picture the real thing (and it reminds me of the two angels in Jesus’ empty tomb); and I liked “Because of the Smoke.”

      Alyson, I had forgotten about the angels in Jesus empty tomb! Thanks for mentioning that.

        Alan’s paper mentioned how the High Priest, on the Day of Atonement, going into the Holy of Holies and sprinkling the blood of the sacrificial bull and goat upon and before the Ark of the Covenant represents the fulfillment of this sacrifice in Jesus, the Christ in John 20:11-12. “Now Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb and saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus’ body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot.” She was seeing a picture of the atonement cover, the mercy seat of the Ark of the Covenant, and the blood between the angels came from the body of Jesus Christ Himself! He made atonement for us all, and fulfilled the feast of Yom Kippur!
