By these regulations the Holy Spirit revealed that the entrance to the Most Holy Place was not freely open as long as the Tabernacle and the system it represented were still in use.
Here is the main point: We have a High Priest who sat down in the place of honor beside the throne of the majestic God in heaven.
So we must listen very carefully to the truth we have heard, or we may drift away from it.
Long ago God spoke many times and in many ways to our ancestors through the prophets. And now in these final days, he has spoken to us through his Son.
“Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone. Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved….”
Even though Jesus was God’s Son, he learned obedience from the things he suffered.
This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin.
And so, dear brothers and sisters who belong to God and are partners with those called to heaven, think carefully about this Jesus whom we declare to be God’s messenger and High Priest.
