Study 13 From The Book of Hebrews Is: Hebrews 10:1-18
- 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?
- What consequences of Christ’s sacrifice (a) are enjoyed by Him, and (b) can be enjoyed by us?
- To what truths does the Holy Spirit bear witness in the Old Testament passages which are here quoted?
- 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 The truth emphasized here is that a moral act of personal obedience has superseded ritual ceremonies, which in themselves had no inherent worth.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).
- 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).
