  1. Verses 1-10. In what respects did the earthly sanctuary and its ceremonies come short, and for what reasons?
  2. Verses 11-15. In what ways is the ministry which Christ fulfilled superior to, and more effective than, the Levitical ceremonies? List its far-reaching consequences.

Notes

  1. Verse 9. “Perfect the conscience’: i.e free it from guilt and defilement, or ‘purify’ it (verse 14).
  2. Verse 12. The Greek does not say that Christ took blood into God’s presence, like the Levitical high priest took blood into the inner shrine (verse 6). Rather He entered ‘through’ His own blood, i.e., on the ground of His death or shed blood.  For by this the veil had been rent which shut men out.  Mk. 15: 37, 38; Heb. 10:19-22
