    As I understand it, Jesus is both the goats in the rites concerning the sacrificed goat and the scapegoat.

    Leviticus 16

    7 Then he is to take the two goats and present them before the Lord at the entrance to the tent of meeting. 8 He is to cast lots for the two goats—one lot for the Lord and the other for the scapegoat.[b] 9 Aaron shall bring the goat whose lot falls to the Lord and sacrifice it for a sin offering. 10 But the goat chosen by lot as the scapegoat shall be presented alive before the Lord to be used for making atonement by sending it into the wilderness as a scapegoat.

    He's your savior.

    Better seek him before it's too late.

    Blasphemy is a sure sign that one isn't saved.

    In the original sense of the word, yes. He takes our punishment. But not as 'scapegoat' is used in common speech today, meaning someone we blame for our wrongdoings. Christians do not blame Jesus. We believe that we owe him our lives.

    If anything Jesus encouraged his followers to take more responsibility for their actions. He promoted good works. If anyone is using Jesus as a scapegoat, they're not understanding Jesus' message. 

    I do think that many "Christians" use him as a scapegoat though.

    Pretty much. The whole idea of him dying for everybody's sins is based on an old Jewish practice. all the sins of the past year would be listed, and the high priest would lay hands on a goat and declare that the sins were now contained within the goat. The goat was then supposed to be released, but in later generations, they would kill the goat.
