In the Old Testament days, the High Priest would need to enter the interior of the Temple on behalf of the Israelites once a year. He would bring ashes and blood of animals sacrificed as atonement for the sins of all the Israelites. The author of Hebrews writes about how Jesus’ entered the Most Holy of Places; and His sacrifice of His body and blood now represents the atonement of our sins.
