Hebrews 10: By one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified

Hebrews 10:1-4

For the law, can never make those who approach perfect.

Hebrews 10:1-4 - ESV
1
For since the law has but a shadow of the good things to come instead of the true form of these realities, it can never, by the same sacrifices that are continually offered every year, make perfect those who draw near.
2
Otherwise, would they not have ceased to be offered, since the worshipers, having once been cleansed, would no longer have any consciousness of sins?
3
But in these sacrifices there is a reminder of sins every year.
4
For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.

  1. What is the law a shadow of?

  3. What did they do continually, year by year?
    Hebrews 10:1 - ESV
    For since the law has but a shadow of the good things to come instead of the true form of these realities, it can never, by the same sacrifices that are continually offered every year, make perfect those who draw near.
  4. If the worshipers were once purified, what would they no longer have consciousness of?
    Hebrews 10:2 - ESV
    Otherwise, would they not have ceased to be offered, since the worshipers, having once been cleansed, would no longer have any consciousness of sins?

Hebrews 10:5-10

Then I said, "Behold, I have come—In the volume of the book it is written of Me—To do Your will, O God."

Hebrews 10:5-10 - ESV
5
Consequently, when Christ came into the world, he said, “Sacrifices and offerings you have not desired, but a body have you prepared for me;
6
in burnt offerings and sin offerings you have taken no pleasure.
7
Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come to do your will, O God, as it is written of me in the scroll of the book.’”
8
When he said above, “You have neither desired nor taken pleasure in sacrifices and offerings and burnt offerings and sin offerings” (these are offered according to the law),
9
then he added, “Behold, I have come to do your will.” He does away with the first in order to establish the second.
10
And by that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

  1. What did He say, when He came into the world?
    Hebrews 10:5 - ESV

    Hebrews 10:7 - ESV
    Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come to do your will, O God, as it is written of me in the scroll of the book.’”
  2. What had He previously said?
    Hebrews 10:8 - ESV
    When he said above, “You have neither desired nor taken pleasure in sacrifices and offerings and burnt offerings and sin offerings” (these are offered according to the law),
  3. What did He say then that He would take away?
    Hebrews 10:9 - ESV
    then he added, “Behold, I have come to do your will.” He does away with the first in order to establish the second.
  4. What would He establish?
    Hebrews 10:9 - ESV
    then he added, “Behold, I have come to do your will.” He does away with the first in order to establish the second.
  5. Through what have we been sanctified, once for all?
    Hebrews 10:10 - ESV
    And by that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God,
13
waiting from that time until his enemies should be made a footstool for his feet.

Of how much worse punishment, he who has counted the blood of the covenant a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace?

Hebrews 10:26-31 - ESV
26
For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins,

28
Anyone who has set aside the law of Moses dies without mercy on the evidence of two or three witnesses.
29
How much worse punishment, do you think, will be deserved by the one who has trampled underfoot the Son of God, and has profaned the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has outraged the Spirit of grace?
