Most church members know that the day of Atonement is covered in Leviticus 16 and Hebrews 9-10. But important additional information about Atonement is given in a chapter we often overlook, Leviticus 25. Part of Leviticus 25:10 is quoted on the Liberty Bell, "proclaim liberty throughout all the land.. ." In his Atonement sermon Mr. Smith shows the physical and spiritual blessing that mankind will receive when these verses in Leviticus 25 are fulfilled in the kingdom of God.
