4. OLD COVENANT: The scapegoat was chosen by lots

4. NEW COVENANT: Barabbas was chosen by the Holy Spirit

Jesus and Barabbas were presented to the crowds by Pontius Pilate, as recorded in Matthew 27:21 -23:

“The governor answered and said to them, “Which of the two do you want me to release to you?” They said, “Barabbas!” Pilate said to them, “What then shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?” They all said to him, “Let Him be crucified! Then the governor said, “Why, what evil has He done?” But they cried out all the more, saying, “Let Him be crucified!”
