Seeking Our God

Hebrews 10:5-10 – Jesus completely fulfilled the will of God

Episode Summary

Check out my children's book here: It was God who provided the sacrifice and not man. The quotation used in this section of Hebrews 10 is from Psalm 40:6–8, and it is applied to Jesus Christ in His incarnation (“when Christ came into the world”). The quotation makes it clear that Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of the Old Covenant sacrifices. The word “sacrifice” used here refers to any of the animal sacrifices. Offering covers the meal offerings and the drink offerings. The burnt offering and sin offering are mentioned (Heb. 10:5, 8). The guilt offering would be covered in the word sacrifice (Heb. 10:5). Each of these offerings typified the sacrifice of Christ and revealed some aspect of His work on the cross (see Lev. 1–7). The failure of animal sacrifices to secure forgiveness led to the explanation of a better approach. The answer comes from Psalm 40:6–8 and applies to our situation. The words of the psalm express Christ’s mission after He entered the world in the incarnation. Christ’s sacrifice lasted because it showed a volitional commitment to do God’s will. Jesus showed a continuous awareness that He was to do the Father’s will, and He pursued it relentlessly. When Christ came, He willingly committed His life to the plan of God. Doing God’s will was His supreme goal. The only complete fulfillment of the will of God appeared in Christ’s perfect obedience.
