Hebrews 11

Hebrews 10

The Mosaic sacrificial law which allowed the physical high priest access to the Most Holy Place only once a year and only with physical sacrifices, maintained the Mosaic Covenant; but it could not reconcile the people with God the Father on a spiritual level.  The Mosaic Covenant could not bring a resurrection to spirit and […]

Hebrews 9

The physical tabernacle was built according to the pattern that God showed Moses, which pattern was a movable type of the heavenly Temple.

Hebrews 2

Hebrews 2 God’s judgment on unrepentant sinners is certain.

Hebrews 1

What is a high priest? A high priest is a person chosen and appointed by God to mediate between God and the people. We read how Israel at Sinai said, “You go and speak for us Moses. Don’t let God speak to us lest we die.” So God made Moses the mediator of the Mosaic […]

Then Paul immediately goes into […]
