How Did Messiah Fulfill Yom Kippur & Passover at the Same Time?

Tovia Singer is a Jewish Anti-Missionary, who has turned many people away from believing that Yahuwshuwa is our Messiah and our Passover Lamb for salvation.

He argues in one of his YouTube videos, that Yahuwchanon (John the Baptist) was wrong in calling our Messiah “The Lamb of Elohiym, who takes away the sins of the world.” 

This is because the Passover Lamb was technically NOT A SIN OFFERING; it was to REDEEM THE FIRST-BORN SONS OF YISRA’EL. 

However, what Tovia Singer fails to understand (either because of ignorance or willful deception), is that our Messiah was fulfilling BOTH: PASSOVER & YOM KIPPUR AT THE SAME TIME! 

How do we know this? 

First, we know that when Yahuwchanon (John) baptized Yahuwshuwa in the Jordan River, this was 40 days before he completed his FAST IN THE WILDERNESS, which concluded on Yom Kippur. 

This means that his 40-day fast began on the 1st of Elul on the Hebrew Calendar. This begins which is called “The Forty Days of Teshuva or Repentance.” These were the same 40-days that Moses went up to the Mount to receive the second set of stone tablets. 

On the last day of his 40-day fast, our Messiah read the Isaiah 61 scroll in the synagogue, and he preached “THE ACCEPTABLE YEAR” of YaHuWaH, which means it was a Jubilee Year, and it was on Yom Kippur! (See Isaiah 49:8; 58:5; 61:2 & Luke 4:19). 

He also told us in Luke 4:25-26, that he was going to have the same kind of ministry as the Prophet Eliyahuw (Elijah) which would last for 3.5 years. 

At the end of his 3.5 years of ministry, he would become like the ONLY SON OF THE WIDOW (SYMBOLIC OF JERUSALEM), and AFTER THREE DAYS & THREE NIGHTS, HE WOULD BE RESURRECTED, just like the ONLY SON OF THE WIDOW, whom Eliyahuw (Elijah) raised from the dead, when he stretched himself over the boy THREE TIMES! (1st Kings 17:21-22).

At his baptism, Yahuwshuwa was fulfilling the role of the YOM KIPPUR TWIN GOATS for BOTH HOUSES OF YISRA’EL! 

When he was IMMERSED, that was a prophetic picture of the SACRIFICIAL GOAT, who is SELECTED BY THE HIGH PRIEST (his cousin, John) to be killed on Yom Kippur! 

Baptism is a SYMBOL OF DEATH in Romans 6:3-6. 

When Yahuwchanon (John) said “BEHOLD THE LAMB OF ELOHIYM,” (John 1:29 & 1:36), he was speaking of the YOM KIPPUR GOAT THAT WAS TO BE KILLED (SYMBOLICALLY) AT HIS BAPTISM! 

Yahuwchanon (John) was also foreshadowing the future PASSOVER LAMB sacrifice, which would REDEEM THE FIRST-BORN SONS OF YISRA’EL! 

The Hebrew word for “GOAT” that is used in the Yom Kippur Ordinance (Leviticus 16:20-21) is A HE-GOAT! 

#8163 sa`iyr saw-eer' or sabir {saw-eer'}; from 8175; shaggy; as noun, A HE-GOAT. 

Additionally, our Messiah was fulfilling the role of the role of “THE TWIN GOATS,” when he became the SUBSTITUTE for BAR ABBA (Barabbas), whose name means “SON OF THE FATHER!” 

In Exodus 4:22, YaHuWaH said to Pharaoh “Yisra’el is my FIRST-BORN SON.” 

Bar Abba (Barabbas) was a picture of the NATION OF YISRA’EL (the first-born son). 

Bar Abba was guilty of murder and insurrection, but he was “LET GO” (LIKE THE SCAPEGOAT, AZAZEL), while our Messiah was “SENT AWAY TO BE KILLED” (LIKE BOTH THE SACRIFICIAL GOAT & THE SCAPEGOAT). 



The Red Heifer cleanses the Temple altar, when the nation became guilty of shedding innocent blood (Deuteronomy 21:1-19). This is why he was escorted “OUTSIDE THE CAMP,” to portray the role of the RED HEIFER who cleanses the altar! (Numbers 19:3).

The Red Heifer had to be at the most, 3.5 years old, which explains why our Messiahs ministry lasted for 3.5 years (Genesis 15:9). Our Messiah was also CONFIRMING ABRAHAMS COVENANT when he died on the tree, according to Daniel 9:27. 

You will notice that the heifer, the goat and the ram were all three years old, because our Messiahs ministry would last for three years, plus 6 months.

Genesis 15:9 And he said unto him, Take me A HEIFER THREE YEARS OLD, and A SHE GOAT THREE YEARS OLD, and A RAM OF THREE YEARS OLD, and a turtledove, and a young pigeon.

If our Messiah had not portrayed the role of the RED HEIFER, even their PASSOVER LAMB would not have been ACCEPTED!

The entire Kingdom of Yahuwdah (Judah) became guilty of shedding innocent blood, that Passover morning, when they shouted “CRUCIFY HIM!” (Matthew 20:19; 27:31; Mark 15:13; 14, 20 & 27; Luke 23:21; John 19:6, 10 & 15). 

The Passover sacrifice may be A MALE GOAT, A MALE LAMB, OR A RAM! Why?


Exodus 12:3 Speak you unto all the congregation of Yisra’el, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, A LAMB [OR A GOAT] for a house:

The Hebrew word for “LAMB” in Exodus 12:3, is as follows:

#7716 seh seh or sey {say}; probably from 7582 through the idea of pushing out to graze; a member of a flock, i.e. a sheep or goat:--(lesser, small) cattle, ewe, goat, lamb, sheep. Compare 2089. 

*Explanation: You will notice that the English translators used the word “LAMB,” but the Hebrew word (seh) has a broader meaning, which can also mean A GOAT. 

Exodus 12:5 Your LAMB shall be without blemish, A MALE OF THE FIRST YEAR: you shall take it out from THE SHEEP [RAM] or from THE GOATS:

#Explanation: You will also notice that the same Hebrew word for “LAMB” used in Exodus 12:5, is the same word used in Exodus 12:3, which is “seh.” 

It goes on to say that the “LAMB” must be without blemish, and a one-year old male. You may take it out from the “SHEEP” or the goats. 

The Hebrew word for “SHEEP” in Exodus 12:5 is as follows: 

#3532 kebes keh-bes' from an unused root meaning to dominate; A RAM (just old enough to butt):--LAMB, SHEEP. 

The Hebrew word for “GOATS” in Exodus 12:5 is as follows: 

#5795 `ez aze from 5810; a she-goat (as strong), but masculine in plural (which also is used ellipt. for goat's hair):--(she) GOAT, KID. 

What we learn from these definitions is that it is lawful to sacrifice A LAMB, A GOAT OR A RAM FOR PASSOVER! 

How did our Messiah fulfill the role of a ONE-YEAR MALE LAMB?

On the previous Passover before he died, our Caiaphas the High Priest prophesied that Yahuwshuwa was going to die for the entire nation. As the High Priest, he was “SELECTING THE LAMB,” that would be killed one year later on Passover!  

John 11:

49 And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, You know nothing at all, 

50 Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not. 

51 And this spoke he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Yahuwshuwa should die for that nation; 

52 And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of Elohiym that were scattered abroad. 

53 Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death.

On First Fruits, the priest is commanded to offer up a HE-LAMB with the FIRST-FRUITS OF BARLEY as the Wave Sheaf Offering: 

Leviticus 23:12 And you shall offer that day when you wave the sheaf A HE LAMB WITHOUT BLEMISH OF THE FIRST YEAR for a burnt offering unto YHWH. 

The Hebrew word for “HE-LAMB” in Leviticus 23:12 is as follows:

#3532 “kebes,” which means A RAM, LAMB OR SHEEP.

Thus, when Tovia Singer tries to disqualify our Messiah as the Passover Lamb, he is showing that he is not the expert in the Torah that he thinks he is. 

Mr. Singer does not recognize that Yahuwshuwa was also fulfilling the YOM KIPPUR TWIN GOATS, as well as the RED HEIFER, IN ONE FELL SWOOP!
