[Heb 13:10 NASB] We have an altar from which those who serve the tabernacle have no right to eat.
[Heb 13:11 NASB] For the bodies of those animals whose blood is brought into the holy place by the high priest [as an offering] for sin, are burned outside the camp.
[Heb 13:12 NASB] Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people through His own blood, suffered outside the gate.
[Heb 13:13 NASB] So, let us go out to Him outside the camp, bearing His reproach.
[Heb 13:14 NASB] For here we do not have a lasting city, but we are seeking the city which is to come.
[Heb 13:15 NASB] Through Him then, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name.
[Heb 13:16 NASB] And do not neglect doing good and sharing, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
[Heb 13:17 NASB] Obey (peithō: persuaded) your leaders and submit (hypeíkō: resist no longer) [to them,] for they keep watch (agrypneō: sleepless) over your souls as those who will give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with grief, for this would be unprofitable for you.
The people are struggling over their faith.
Who Jesus is:
[Heb 1:2-3] in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,
More excellent than angels
He freed those who through fear of death were subject to slavery
Consider Jesus, the Apostle and High Priest of our confession; He is more excellent than Moses.
He’s the One you need to listen to:
[Heb 3:7-8] Therefore, just as the Holy Spirit says, "today if you hear his voice,do not harden your hearts as when they provoked me, as in the day of trial in the wilderness,"
Our rest only comes through Him, not a day.
He is more excellent than Joshua, who couldn’t give them rest
He is our true High-Priest
He gives us permission to draw near to the throne of grace
He is a priest after the order of MELCHIZEDEK
He is the One who perfects us
He keeps His promises
He is unchangeable
He enters the Holy of Holies
Perfection cannot come from the Levitical priesthood, only through Jesus
[Heb 8:1-2] Now the main point in what has been said [is this:] we have such a high priest, who has taken His seat at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, a minister in the sanctuary and in the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, not man.
[Heb 8:6] He is also the mediator of a better covenant, which has been enacted on better promises.
[Heb 8:13] When He said, "A new [covenant,]" He has made the first obsolete. But whatever is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to disappear.
He serves in the heavenly Tabernacle
[Heb 9:11-12] But when Christ appeared [as] a high priest of the good things to come, [He entered] through the greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this creation; and not through the blood of goats and calves, but through His own blood, He entered the holy place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.
[Heb 9:27-28] And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this [comes] judgment, so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without [reference to] sin, to those who eagerly await Him.
[Heb 10:1 -4NASB] He’s better than The law: For the Law, since it has [only] a shadow of the good things to come [and] not the very form of things, can never, by the same sacrifices which they offer continually year by year, make perfect those who draw near. Otherwise, would they not have ceased to be offered, because the worshipers, having once been cleansed, would no longer have had consciousness of sins? But in those [sacrifices] there is a reminder of sins year by year. For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.
[Heb 10:5] Therefore, when He comes into the world, He says, "sacrifice and offering you have not desired, but a body you have prepared for me;
[Heb 10:12] but He, having offered one sacrifice for sins for all time, SAT DOWN AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD,
It is He Who makes us righteous:
[Heb 10:38] but my righteous one shall live by faith; and if he shrinks back, my soul has no pleasure in him.
Things to continue:
[Heb 12:28] Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude, by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe;
Love of the brethren
Hospitality to strangers
Remember the prisoners
Hold marriage in high esteem
Be free from sexual sins.
Character free from the love of money.
Content with what you have
Remember those who positively taught you the Word
Don’t be carried away by varied and strange teachings
Let your heart be strengthened by grace, not food.
[Heb 13:10] We have an altar from which those who serve the tabernacle have no right to eat.
[1Co 9:13] Do you not know that those who perform sacred services eat the [food] of the temple, [and] those who attend regularly to the altar have their share from the altar?
[Heb 13:11] For the bodies of those animals whose blood is brought into the holy place by the high priest [as an offering] for sin, are burned outside the camp. (Lev 4, 16)
