Unintentional Sins

All the sins listed in Leviticus 4 are unintentional. Unintentional sins are forgiven, but the sinner must acknowledge his sin, confess it to the priest, and have a sacrifice made for his sins. Yes, Jesus came as our eternal sacrifice. That means we don't need to go to a priest to have a bull slaughtered for our sins. But it doesn't change the fact that sin is sin. We still need to acknowledge that our sins are sins. And we still need to confess our sins to whoever can make us right with God. And the role of confessee is He who offered Himself as a sacrifice, not a merely human priest, but the eternal high priest, the Lord Jesus Christ.

I'm curious to see what Leviticus has to say about intentional sins...
