Was there forgiveness during the Law of Moses?

Exodus, Leviticus and Numbers frequently refer to atonement and forgiveness of sins by means of animal sacrifice. Similarly, Hebrews 11 indicates that persons of the Mosaic period are saved by faith. Yet the Jewish authors of the New Testament repeatedly describe the Law of Moses as without grace, not dispensing forgiveness, and not operating based upon faith. Such observations invite us to take a closer look at the relationship and contrasts between the Law of Moses, the New Covenant, and the means by which God offers atonement and forgiveness for sin. How do conventional explanations hold up to biblical scrutiny on these important questions?

Q:I'm new here. Where should I get started?
The arrangement of topics to the left provides a recommended reading order. It is designed to reflect a step-by-step progression from more basic topics to more complex ones. However, it is not necessary to follow this order. Those who are more familiar with certain topics may easily read whichever studies are of interest without first going through all of the earlier topics in the list.
