Hebrews 9: 11-15….Comparisons

But when Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things that have come, then through the greater and more perfect tent (not made with hands, that is, not of this creation) he entered once for all into the holy places, not by means of the blood of goats and calves but by meansContinue reading “Hebrews 9: 11-15….Comparisons”

Hebrews 9: 1-10…. A look at the past.

Now even the first covenant had regulations for worship and an earthly place of holiness. For a tent was prepared, the first section, in which were the lampstand and the table and the bread of the Presence. It is called the Holy Place.

Hebrews 7: 18 -28….Jesus Qualified to be our High Priest

For on the one hand, a former commandment is set aside because of its weakness and uselessness (for the law made nothing perfect); but on the other hand, a better hope is introduced, through which we draw near to God.

Hebrews 5: 1-10….. Jesus appointed by God

He can deal gently with the ignorant and wayward, since he himself is beset with weakness. Because of this he is obligated to offer sacrifice for his ownContinue reading “Hebrews 5: 1-10….. Jesus appointed by God”

Hebrews 4: 14-16…Jesus as High Priest.

Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet withoutContinue reading “Hebrews 4: 14-16…Jesus as High Priest.”
