going above and beyond

Most things in the Old Testament are symbolic for what Christ would bring us in the NewTestament. Jesus is referred to as the "Lamb of God." Animal sacrifice is no longer used because Christ fulfilled that symbolic lamb. And the Levite Priests didn't waste the animal sacrifice because that was their dinner and it was also given to the hungry among the people. Jesus paid the universal price for redemption, "Mercy cannot rob Justice." He did what no other being could do, because he is the literal Son of Ahman, Heavenly Father, therefore a God in flesh. That's what it took to pay Justice so that we can obtain Mercy for forgiveness. Even then in the garden of Gethsemane that price from suffering caused he, who is a God, to bleed at every pore. So how much more would we suffer to pay for just our own sins compared to the Son who paid for all. No mortal could accomplish that because how could we who need the Atonement for our sins, redeem others.
The bullock represents the purging of sin specifically regarding the twelve tribes of the house of Israel, setting them apart as an holy order to stand also as judges for the righteous, during peace in the 7th millennium, a matter of teaching and organizing.
Here's what I thought you would be addressing, sister willa, so-called cannibalism ...
Cannibalism as well brethren (and sistren)?
