WHAT DO THE OLD TESTAMENT'S LAYING ON OF HANDS AND THE NEW TESTAMENT'S BAPTISM MEAN?
The righteousness of God in the Law and the prophets for the remission of sins tells us:
Leviticus 1:3-4>

"If his offering is a burnt sacrifice of the herd, he shall offer it of his own free will at the door of the tabernacle of meeting before the Lord. The he shall put his hands on the head of the burnt offering, and it will be accepted on his behalf to make an atonement for him."

The old testament tells us that an offering for the remission of sins must be a male, and unblemished. The sacrifice must be presented at the door of the tabernacle of the meeting with the sinner to put his hands on the head of the sacrifice. The Priest ministering in the alter, when they kill the sacrifice on behalf of the people must draw the blood, sprinkle it on the four horns of the alter of burnt offering and pour the rest on the ground, for the people to receive the remission of a day's worth of sins.

However, for the remission of a year's worth of sins, Leviticus 16:6-10 tells us, "Aaron shall offer the bull as a sin offering, which is for himself, and make atonement for himself and his house. He shall take the two goats and present them before the Lord at the door of the tabernacle of meeting. Then Aaron shall cast lots for the two goats: one lot for the Lord and the other for the scapegoat. And Aaron shall bring the goat on which the Lord's lot fell, and offer it as a sin offering. But the goat on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat fell shall be presented alive before the Lord, to make atonement upon it, and to let it go as the scapegoat into the wilderness." In the bible, the scapegoat means " to give out."

Additionally, Leviticus 16:29 says, "This shall be a statute for ever for you: In the seventh month, on the tenth of the month, you shall afflict your souls, and do no work at all, whether a native of your own country or a stranger who dwells among you."

HOW WERE THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL FORGIVEN OF A YEAR'S WORTH OF THEIR SINS ALL AT ONCE?
1 First they needed the high priest, Aaron, this was necessary for a year's worth of the remission of sins. He was the representative of all the priests of the Israelites. He and his descendants God set aside as the High priest.
2 Aaron brought a bull into the tabernacle's court, passed his sins unto the bull, putting his hands on its head to atonement for himself and his house.
3 Cut its throat, drew its blood, and took some of the blood of the bull and sprinkle it with his finger on the mercy on the east side, and before the mercy seat sprinkle some of blood seven times. Atonement means passing one's sins unto the sacrificial animal by putting his hands on its head. The vicarious death of a sacrificial animal is atonement.
The sinful must die. However, by passing their sins unto the animal by the laying on means that the animal is put to death in the place of the sinner. The High Pries and his first remitted their sins in this way. After this the High Priest enters the tabernacle by himself, offering one of the two goats to God by laying their hands on its head, killing it to draw its blood on behalf of the people. Afterward, he would lay his hand on the scapegoat to pass the sins of the people in their presence. with the hands of the high Priest on the head of the scapegoat he prays as follows:>
"Oh, Lord, the people of Israel have broken Your Law, from the first to the last of your Ten Commandments, and all the 613 articles of the Law.
I therefore pass these sins onto the sacrificial goat by laying my hands on its head." He will then cut its throat, drew its blood and would take the blood into the Most Holy, where he was allowed to enter once a year. He then sprinkle the blood on the east side of the mercy seat, covering the ARK of the Testimony, and before the mercy seat
, again sprinkling the blood seven times.
