These were believers in danger of going back to Judaism

2 To show that what they have in Christ is vastly superior to what they had before

 

What we have in Christ is vastly superior to what we had before

Hebrew speaks about the better things

Better hope. Covenant, substance, country, blood, hope

Epistle of better things

Not written about us but written for us

Fundamental truths of ; Faith, Death of Christ, Divine chastening are all spoken of in this letter

No major church truth in Hebrews

In this new relationship, the worship of God has been taken into the sanctuary

We are within the vail

No need for the altar of incense

Limitations of the old sanctuary :

Verse 7: limitations of access, one man once per year

We have unrestricted access to the presence of God

Not about familiarity

Limitations for the priest – verse 7

The priest had to offer something for himself and then for the people

Priest offered for himself and then the people

Limitation in the atonement (verse 13)

Limitation as to the duration of what was done – for the time present

Liberty of access – verse 12

Christ has entered once for all, Christ lives in the Holy place, the High Priest of old visited the Holy Place

Christ has gone to Heaven to stay in the Holy Place

Verses 13 – His blood is different

Blessings of Duration – eternal redemption
