Sunday School Lesson (June 16 2019) The New Covenants Sacrifice Hebrews 9:11-22
This week I take a look at the ninth chapter of Hebrews as it explains the new covenant’s sacrifice. Of course that sacrifice is the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Everything the Old Testament required for redemption and restoration is fulfilled in the New Testament with Christ. In the Old Agreement the high priest went into the tabernacle and the Holy Place to sprinkle blood for the redemption of the people. In the New Testament Jesus symbolically goes into the Holy of Holies with his own blood. In the Old Testament the high priest had to continually offer sacrifices for the people. In the New Covenant, Jesus needs only go in once and it is for all humanity and for all eternity. Some of the ideas surrounding this week’s text include the terms Tabernacle, Covenant, Testament, New Covenant or New Agreement, and Redemption.
