Study 13 From The Book of Hebrews Is: Hebrews 10:1-18search the srciptures

  1. Write down as many contrasts as you can find between the sacrifices of the Tabernacle and the sacrifice offered by Christ. Why did the latter succeed where the former failed?
  2. What consequences of Christ’s sacrifice (a) are enjoyed by Him, and (b) can be enjoyed by us?
  3. To what truths does the Holy Spirit bear witness in the Old Testament passages which are here quoted?

Notes

  1. Verses 5-9. The truth emphasized here is that a moral act of personal obedience has superseded ritual ceremonies, which in themselves had no inherent worth.  They were only ‘a shadow of the good things to come’ (verse 1).
  2. Verses 1, 10, 14. ‘Perfected’ and ‘sanctified’:  the meaning is that by Christ’s one sacrifice we are brought for ever into a perfect, unalterable relationship of acceptance with God and consecration to His service. No further offering for sin is necessary (verse 18).
