The Perfect Lamb

You shall not sacrifice to the LORD your God an ox or a sheep in which is a blemish, any defect whatever, for that is an abomination to the LORD your God.--Deuteronomy 17:1 (ESV)

And if you call on him as Father who judges impartially according to each one’s deeds, conduct yourselves with fear throughout the time of your exile, knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot.--1 Peter 1:17-19 (ESV)

Only pure, unblemished sacrifices can appease God's wrath. Jesus, the pure Sacrifice, ransoms us by His pure and cleansing blood.
