It seems to me very significant spiritually, that Satan has adopted the goat as his symbol. The Bible is normally geared towards the disciple of Jesus Christ, yet it is used by the world and his wife often to justify themselves before an all-knowing God. Matthew 10 : 30-40 speaks volumes about the “sufferings of Christ” found in those whom the Lord has chosen to do a work within. This is a spiritual work, and it is often hidden on a conscious level from those around us. Yet the actual child of God will feel it, and suffer it, unlike anyone else around them! I think that the scapegoat is normally of strong moral courage, and that’s why they are perhaps picked, they are a type of Christ, but the blows to them are no less painful.
