Chapter 17 The Almighty Purger Of Sins

His Son… by Himself purged our sins (Hebrews 1:2-3). The Epistle to the Hebrews is great and profound and marvelously methodical. The first chapters are about the Person of the Lord Jesus and who He is—a Messenger of a more exalted dignity and a Minister of a more abundant grace than any before. Chapter 1 presents Him as the Divine Son of God; chapter 2 as the perfect Son of man, made like unto His brethren. These two chapters are the foundations upon which all Christian truth rests. ...

Chapter 18 The Taking Away Of Sins

Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many (Hebrews 9:28). We are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all (Hebrews 10:10). He…offered one sacrifice for sins for ever (Hebrews 10:12). By one offering He hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified (Hebrews 10:14). The law given to Moses prescribed many sacrifices. The one of special value was a once-a-year offering on the day of atonement. If these sacrifices had been able to pacify con...

Chapter 19 Immeasurable Sufferings

My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me? (Psalm 22:1) Behold, and see if there be any sorrow, like unto My sorrow (Lamentations 1:12).

This psalm was committed to “the chief singer,” as the title indicates, for none but he could have charge of such a holy strain. The “Aijeleth Shahar” ...

Chapter 10 The Trespass Offering

If a soul commit a trespass, and sin through ignorance, in the holy things of the LORD; then he shall bring for his trespass unto the LORD a ram without blemish out of the flocks, with thy estimation by shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary, for a trespass offering. And he shall make amends for the harm that he hath done in the holy thing, and shall add the fifth part thereto, and give it unto the priest: and the priest shall make an atonement for him with the ram of the tresp...

The Great God Our Saviour

Together with the Epistle to the Romans, the Epistle to the Hebrews is one of the great doctrinal treatises of the Word of God. The first part speaks of our Lord as being a new and better Deliverer; the second part as having a new and better Sacrifice; the third part as having a new and better principle by which we can be saved—that of faith, not works. Who He Is The first chapter sets forth our Lord’s absolute and certified Deity. He is the “Heir of all thi...
