Jesus’ Superior Sanctuary

The focus of Hebrews 9:1-15 is on the superiority of Jesus’ workplace (i.e., sanctuary) as the new covenant’s High Priest.

This section begins noting several characteristics about the old covenant’s tabernacle which make it inherently inferior to Christ’s current workplace in heaven (verses 1-10). It concludes by identifying five ways Christ’s atonement is superior to everything authorized in the inferior sanctuary (verses 11-15).

This theme of “betterness” loudly reverberates through Hebrews. It is intended.

Sometimes it is good to be reminded of the obvious: The blessedness of living under the covenant inaugurated by Christ’s blood at Calvary is vastly superior. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so is the new covenant superior to the old.

The surest way to cultivate deep, sincere gratitude for Christ and intense loyalty to Him and His new covenant is to learn the many ways it is unrivaled.
