JEWISH ATONEMENT WHILE IN EXILE and the NEED FOR REDEMPTION
If ALL of mankind was literally in the loins of Adam when he ate of the forbidden tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, resulting in HaShem expelling him from the Garden of Eden and the Tree of Life therein, then how is the Jew ‘Redeemed’ from the Adamic consequence of ‘Death’?
This Adamic Death consequence was irrevocable and was instituted by G-d some 2500 years before the Mosaic Law ever came into existence, therefore it supersedes the Mosaic Law.
Moreover, while it may indeed be true that temporal Atonement for Sin with respect to the Written Scripture (Torah) and the Mosaic Law existed in two parts, the fervent repentant confession and the cultic sacrifice, whereas the fervent repentant confession by itself could achieve temporal Atonement in times of Jewish captivity as a consequence of the absence of the Temple and High Priest ( i.e. greatly beloved Daniel 9:23 and his long Babylonian captivity). It could NOT however affect ‘Redemption’ from the Adamic consequence of Death. Likewise, Solomon declared in 1 Kings 8:46 the consequence of Adams Sin - "for there is no man that sinneth not." This is also echoed by Apostle Paul in Rom. 5:12 as well. (emphasis added)
1 Kings 8:46 (KJV)
To this end, there is NO man subsequent to the Adamic fall that can walk absolutely Righteous before HaShem without Sin (Rom. 3:10), excluding Yeshua of course, absent the benefit of individual Atonement…not even the great beloved prophet Daniel himself. However, Daniel could find a suggested avenue for Atonement in the following Passages. (emphasis added) PLEASE take special note of Dan. 9:3-23 in the OT as well, and Daniel’s personal fervent prayer of petition and confession before HaShem, for both his people and himself… which in verse 9:23 is answered by Gabriel characterizing Daniel as the ‘one greatly beloved’. As such, ask yourself this question, would Daniel have even prayed such a prayer if he had thought that there was no hope in HaShem answering his petition of clemency for 'temporal' Atonement for his sin.
Moreover, in each of these Passages cited below there is never the mention of a cultic sacrifice for the Atonement of Sin, but rather only a fervent cognitive repentant confession of Sin.
Chronicles 7:14 (KJV)
Deuteronomy 4:29-31 (KJV)
Meanwhile, is it reasonable to assume then that G-d would leave 'Righteous' men such as Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, and his 7,000 reserved (1 Kings 19:18) without the possibility and option of individually Atoning for their Sins?
Therefore, if Death through Adam passed upon ALL mankind as the Torah suggests (we ALL still die), then this implies that Death is a greater force than man and by himself alone, man is incapable of removing Death from himself – thus, just as creation requires a creator, Redemption from Death requires a Redeemer – hence, Yeshua Jesus.
Going forward, to suggest that G-d has never required a human sacrifice is not supported by the Written Torah in which Abraham was asked by HaShem to sacrifice his ONLY son Isaac (a type of Christ - the Redeemer). For all practical intentions Abraham completed the sacrifice of his only son in his heart by FAITH. (emphasis added)
