Propitiation. A reconciliation. Thus, Christ is the "propitiation for our sins." Romans 3:25; 1 John 2:2; 1 John 4:10. He reconciles us to God, not God to us. The same Greek word is used by the Septuagint to denote "sin-offering," Ezekiel 44:27; Ezekiel 45:19; "atonement," Numbers 6:8; the "mercy-seat," Hebrews 9:5; and the covering of the ark of the covenant Leviticus 16:14.
