Day 4: Hebrews 9:15-28

Read: Hebrews 9:15-28 again.

Think:

  • Verses 23-28 draw some contrasts between the death & sacrifices in the old covenant and the death of Christ in the new covenant. According to verse 23, what is the first contrast between the sacrifices of the old and new covenants?
  • Verse 24 gives the reason why better sacrifices were necessary in the new covenant. What is that reason according to verse 24?
  • According to the end of verse 24, why did Christ “enter heaven itself?”
  • How does the fact that Christ “entered heaven itself, now to appear for us in God’s presence” (v. 24) help us as we gather for worship this morning?
