The Day of Atonement and Chronology

QUESTION: I would like to know what the Torah Jews, do in place of sacrifices, to atone for there sins, in this day and age? And I would like to know the chronological order of the OT, and the NT?

ANSWER: I know that Modern Jews still worship in their synagogues on the Day of Atonement which is Yom Kippur. Yom Kippur starts at sunset on Sunday, October 1, and ends at nightfall on Monday, October 2. But, beyond that I am not sure. You might want to ask a Jew that question and you can at Ask A Rabbi.

You can find a chronology of the story of the Old Testament (still under revision) on my SBL site here and the New Testament here.

    Concerning your reply to the question of whether Jesus appeared in the Old Testament, you only mention the 3 ‘Men’ who came to eat with Abraham. You do not mention Him in the Garden of Eden or His role as Melchizedek as the ‘King of Righteousness in Heb 7. As only a God family member can be Righteous, it is obviously Christ. Also, Abraham gave a tithe to Him – Why a mere man as tithing is for God? (See also Hebrews 5 & 6).

    According to John 1, all was made by Christ as the Word of God. So it was He who formed, communicated, and banished Adam & Eve from the garden.

    Sorry, it appears I attached to the wrong question. This comment was for the question if Jesus appeared in the OT in Human form.

    Jesus did not have a human form until he was born into the humanity with Mary. There is not evidence in the text of the Old Testament to support otherwise. However, some have found random Scripture and supplied an out of context interpretation. One has to ask the question: Why is it so important the Jesus be found in the Old Testament?
