“The Scape-goat – by Harrison Weir” is a full page book plate image, taken from the “Chatterbox Album of Animals”, published by W.W.Gardner, circa 1878. The short anecdote accompanying the illustration, reads as follows: “By the Scape-goat is meant the goat which the high priest of the children of Israel was obliged by the Law of Moses to send away by itself into the wilderness, after he had confessed over it the sins of the people. This was a picture of Jesus Christ our Saviour, who has carried away all our sins: for ‘The Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all’.”
