- No Shedding Of Blood No ForgivenessThe point of this text being driven home is no shed blood no forgiveness of sin. The solution for the problem is not to try harder, but the solution is God incarnate the promised Messiah Jesus Christ and His shed blood. The old sacrificial system and the Old priesthood are a foreshadowing of this. Furthermore, we have mentioned in verses 16 and 17 of a will and how it is only in effect after the death of the one who made the will. Jesus inaugurated the New Covenant by his death and the shedding of His blood. Our salvation which is our inheritance rests on the new covenant in Christ’s blood which his superior to the blood of animals. This messae will draw your attention to three specific facts from this passage of Scripture this morningsoundfaith.com
- Purify Our ConscienceIn today’s passage the author goes into some detail concerning the sacrificial system to reveal it is imperfect and temporary. It can’t purify our conscience and will not remove our guilt. The whole design of the Old Covenant system was a foreshadowing of what was to come which was Jesus Christ, a superior High Priest who offered His own blood to obtain eternal redemption and purify our conscience. How does God purify our conscience and deal with our guilt with the blood of Jesus Christ so this morning I am going to break this down into 3 main parts for us 1. The inadequacy of the Old Covenant 2. The accomplishment of Christ’s sacrifice 3. Why Christ redeems ussoundfaith.com
- Our High Priest Saves To The UttermostIn the text today the author of Hebrews is continuing his argument that Jesus is our high priest forever in the order of Melchizedek making him far superior to the Levitical priests he is superior because of 1) God’s oath (20-22) 2) Jesus is superior because of his permanence (23-25) 3) Jesus is superior because of his perfection (26-28) the overall message is that because Jesus is our perfect High Priest He saves to the uttermostsoundfaith.com
- A Better HopeThe argument being made in these verses is simply this that the New Covenant and the priesthood of Jesus is superior to the Old Covenant and the Levitical priesthood because they are perfect and provide a better hope and allow us to draw near to God. This argument is broken down into two main categories for us. In verses 11-14 we see in insufficiency of the Law and the Levitical priesthood to make anyone perfect. Then in verses 15-19 we see the sufficient superiority of the New Covenant and the priesthood of Jesus in the likeness of Melchizedek, enabling us to have a better hope drawing near to God.soundfaith.com
