Judaism and Christianity on Sin and Atonement: Why do We Differ?

The foundation of the Church stands on its core doctrine that the blood sacrifice alone expiates iniquity and reconciles man with God. In this intriguing broadcast, Rabbi Tovia Singer illustrates that the doctrine of substitutionary atonement—the notion that only the unblemished sacrificial blood can propitiate God’s wrath and atone for sin—is clearly denounced by the prophets of Israel. Moreover, Rabbi Singer demonstrates that the Christian teaching that “Jesus paid the price for your sins” is an alien creed which is incompatible with God’s love and mercy.
