Sins of Ignorance

Once a year, on the day of atonement, the high priest of Israel would enter into the holiest sanctuary in order to offer blood for his own sins, and for the errors of the people (Heb. 9:7). The word rendered errors here is agnoema. It is a broad term, encompassing sins generally, and has reference to sins committed in ignorance or thoughtlessly. Sin is defined as such by Scripture, and not by the knowledge or intention of the one committing the sin.
