Today’s Text: Hebrews 6:13- 10:18
Today’s Reading: Hebrews 6:13 – 10:18.
Highlights: Yesterday’s reading stated that with Christ we have a better messenger (Jesus is greater than angels) and lawgiver (Jesus is better than Moses). Today’s reading says that we have a better high priest, covenant, and sacrifice. Note how this reading ends: “Now where there is remission of these, there is no longer an offering for sin.” That is the greatest benefit of the gospel and the greatest difference when compared to what the Law of Moses offered. The blood of animal sacrifices offered under the law could not take away sins. The blood of Jesus can!
We have spent almost a year reading through the Bible. Everything we have read is a part of God’s word but it doesn’t all apply to us in the same way. So much of the Old Testament is about the nation of Israel and their life under the Law of Moses. What does Hebrews 8:8-13 tell us about the old law? What did Galatians 3:24 say about the law?
