From Handbook to Scripture, Day 331
READING: HEBREWS 8
The author urges his readers not to fall away, but to press on to spiritual maturity and to put their hope in God’s promises (5:11–6:20). Christ’s priesthood is superior to that of the Levites (7:1–28), and as such, He is the mediator of a better covenant than the Mosaic covenant (8:1–13).
The author of Hebrews skillfully uses a great range of Old Testament quotations and allusions to build a careful case for the finality of Christ’s priestly sacrifice.
