Hebrews 9:23-28 – The superiority and permanence of Christ's sacrifice

Episode Summary

Check out my children's book here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08FP9NZNK Christ’s sacrifice was better than sacrifices made under the Mosaic covenant because Christ did not enter a man-made sanctuary, which was a copy; instead, He entered the true sanctuary, which is in heaven – the very presence of God. In Hebrews 9:25-26 Christ's death is seen as a one-time necessity. Christ’s sacrifice was better than sacrifices made under the Mosaic covenant because He did not offer an annual sacrifice of animals, but offered Himself once. A similarity and a contrast are presented in verses 27-28. Both people and Christ die once; however, a person meets judgment after death and Christ will bring salvation. As people die once, so Christ died once—not like the repeated sacrifices of the Levitical system. unlike people, Christ did not die and face judgment. He died once to appear a second time for salvation (Heb 1:14). Those who eagerly wait for Him are not necessarily all believers, but those who look for His return, those who are steadfast to the end.
