Hebrews 10:1-4 – A Reminder of Sins Every Year

Episode Summary

Check out my children's book here: The tenth chapter of Hebrews emphasizes the perfect sacrifice of Jesus Christ, in contrast with the imperfect sacrifices that were offered under the Old Covenant. Our Lord’s superior priesthood belongs to a better order—Melchizedek’s and not Aaron’s. It functions on the basis of a better covenant—the New Covenant—and in a better sanctuary, in heaven. But all of this depends on the better sacrifice, which is the theme of chapter 10. The argument concerning Christ's greatness comes to a climax in Hebrews 10:1-18. This is the final subsection of the expository unit that began at 7:1. In chapter 7 the author argued for the superiority of Christ, as a Priest after the order of Melchizedek, over the Levitical priests. In 8:1–10:18, the writer argued the superiority of Christ’s priestly ministry which is based on a superior covenant (8:7–9:15) and entailed a superior sacrifice (9:16–28). Now the author argued that the superior sacrifice perfects the New Covenant worshiper.
