Religion under the Old Covenant – Part 2
Religion under the Old Covenant – Part 2
Hebrews 9:1-10
Speaker's Picture
Sunday Morning Service,  January 16, 2011

To explain how the New Covenant effectively offers eternal forgiveness (8:1-13), the author now details the difference between what took place under the Old Covenant and what has taken place under the New (9:1-10:18). He begins this contrast with a description of the old religious system. As we consider the way the Jews were commanded to worship under the Law, we conclude that a system of worship, no matter how elaborate, can never of itself purge us from sin.
