  • Psalms 19-22
  • Psalms 19:12-13 – Compare Leviticus 16:21-22, 30, 34 and Hebrews 5:1-3. Our hidden faults are sins we have committed unknowingly. Under the Old Covenant, the scapegoat took on all the sins of the congregation – not just those they were aware of.
  • Psalms 21 – The king rejoices in God’s salvation.
  • Psalms 22 – We know this is a Messianic psalm because it is quoted in the New Testament and applied to Jesus.
  • Psalms 22:1
    • John 8:28-29 – God has never forsaken someone for doing that which pleased Him.
    • John 16:31-32
    • When Jesus quoted this psalm on the cross, He was bringing the entire contents of the psalm to the crowd’s attention.
    • Luke 23:48
    • Jesus did not become a sinner on the cross – He became a scapegoat to carry our sins away.
    • I Peter 1:19
