This week, Pastor Andrea Fluegel and Jack Palmer discuss the Letter to the Hebrews 9:1-14. This scripture passage refers to the Old Covenant as well as the difference between the temporal or earthly and the heavenly sanctuary. The Day of Atonement is now fulfilled in Jesus rather than the offering brought by the priest once a year to the Holy of Holies. Now direct access to God is everyday through Jesus rather than once a year through a human priest.
Question: What does it mean to you that Jesus' throne is not of gold but of grace?
In this series, we explore the Letter to the Hebrews. "Hebrews speaks to people who find that daily life seems to be far removed from the kingdom of God. The author recognizes that the gospel's message may be glorious, yet life in the Christian community and the wider society is often discouraging. Through vivid images of Israel in the wilderness, the sanctuary and its worship, and a panoramic view of the whole history of Israel, the author shows how the message of hope can continue to motivate people to lives of faith and service" (excerpt from EntertheBible.org).
