A new app tailored for the Yom Kippur Jewish holiday uses the biblical story of the scapegoat found in Leviticus to teach about the Day of Atonement.
The application, named the eScapegoat App, allows users to admit their sins and off-load them onto a virtual goat that represents the scapegoat in Leviticus.
"The real benefit of this app is that we are teaching people the story from Leviticus about the scapegoat," Sarah Lefton, founder and executive director of G-dcast and the developer who created the app, told The Christian Post.
